What Is The Link Between Ethics And Law?

While it is easy to agree that AI applications should be ethical and their decisions should be fair, it is less straightforward to agree on what this means in practice and how, or to which extent, the law should impose fairness. Discover the link between ethics and law, and learn about the role that law plays, and can play, to ensure ethical AI.
