Robotics & AI

Recent advancements in digital technology requires practical and legal expertise of this developing area of law. The two key areas we focus on at Kosnahan Law are Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotics.

What we can do

The emergence of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in client sectors is increasing at a rapid pace.


Advances in AI and Machine Learning mean it will come to disrupt legal rules and principles, which have until now underpinned the way specific industries function.  From winning at chess and AlphaGo, to chat bots passing the Turing Test, decisions based on Machine Learning are commonplace in everyday online journeys across multiple sectors including banking, sportsbook, gaming, fintech, social networks, search engines and DTC Media to name a few.

At Kosnahan, our lawyers have experience in advising clients involved in AI and Machine Learning, including development of Machine & Deep Learning tools using neural networks and algorithms for decision making.

We work with our clients to identify and address regulatory requirements, such as compliance with legislation and licensing of data bases & training models from third parties for use in Machine Learning.  We have particular expertise in negotiating and drafting agreements specific for interrogation of historic sports book data, chat bots, and compliance tools/algorithms for decision making.

We draw on our experience to assist clients understand requirements in circumstances where machine learning algorithms are in use, discriminatory decisions affecting consumers are taken and identifying solutions to address such issues.

We also guide you through the challenges of this technology, helping you to identify, protect, enforce and maximise the value of your Intellectual Property.

If you’re working in the field of Robotics, you’ll no doubt be familiar with Science Fiction and Isaac Asimov‘s three fundamental rules of Robotics:

  1. A robot may not injure a human being, or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm
  2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law
  3. A robot must protect its own existence, as long as such protection does not conflict with the First Law or the Second Law

Whilst these rules come from Science Fiction, in reality, the ability to manufacture better robots is advancing at a steady pace following improvements in battery and sensor technology and more efficient methods of motion. Perhaps the greatest advancement is supercharging robotics with artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities.

Within the field of Robotics, we work with clients on Roboethics (how machines behave, discriminatory algorithms, self-learning) and Robotiquette (how machines interact).

We consider ethics and compliance questions at early stages, to ensure deployment in compliance existing legislation and regulation. Where Robotics are deployed in factory settings, we can assist with insurance considerations, specific around systems failures.

We identify appropriate datasets for training algorithms and agreements for the licensing of those datasets.

We also help you to identify, protect, enforce and maximise the value of your Intellectual Property, including through our network of international trade mark and Patent Attorneys.
