Law ? Computation: The past, present, and future relationship
In this talk, I will present the set of frames through which I view the relationship between law and computation: "law as computation," "computation on law," and "law and computation." By distinguishing these frames and understanding their context, I hope to increase clarity in our discussions, summarize current research, and suggest future avenues for both academic and commerical effort. This talk will include a number of original examples that highlight current possibilities at the forefront of law and computation.
