On Friday, March 9, UI College of Law Professor Cristina Tilley will present a lunchtime program entitled "(Re)categorizing Defamation." PLEASE NOTE that this is a rescheduled event date.
Today's media corporations have begun turning to artificial intelligence to report and write the news we read. In a modern legal regime that links defamation liability to the speaker's intent, what happens when algorithms produce defamatory content? This project tackles that question and asks whether the time has come to recategorize defamation as a strict liability tort.
Please join us in BLB Room 245 from 12:40-1:40 p.m. A light lunch will be provided.
