Il diritto si sta adattando alla rivoluzione tecnologica?

Pietro Borsano. Professore presso la School of Managament della Shinawatra International University. Avvocato presso Advising Asia - Business & Legal Consulting Co., Ltd.

Il diritto sta affrontando molte sfide, dovute all’emergere di nuovi modelli imprenditoriali (quale la c.d. sharing economy) e alla crescente automatizzazione e robotizzazione delle funzioni un tempo svolte da avvocati e professori. Nuove soluzioni si affacciano sul mercato dei servizi legali: da un lato, software basati sull’intelligenza artificiale eseguono approfondite ricerche giuridiche con maggior precisione, rapidità, e profondità di analisi di quanto possa fare un essere umano. Dall’altra, chatbot e piattaforme online stanno offrendo standardizzati pareri legali per casi più semplici, i quali non richiedono un particolare approfondimento qualititivo, ma possono essere risolti soprattutto in base a set di dati statistici tratti da casi precedenti (analisi dei c.d. big data). La tecnologia, inoltre, puo’ apportare sconvolgimenti in mercati consolidati: è il caso del blockchain e delle initial coin offering (ICO), un innovativo sistema di finanziamento che si situa tra la tradizionale quotazione sul mercato borsistico e l’equity crowdfunding, ma che presenta alcuni profili di rischio. L’Autore si chiede se il legislatore e la professione forense saranno in grado di anticipare i cambiamenti strutturali in corso e, anzi, di guidarli; oppure se, passivamente, si adegueranno ad un predominio della tecnologia anche nel settore giuridico.

Is Law Adapting to Technology Disruption?

The law industry is facing many threats, due to emerging business models (such as the sharing economy) and increasing automation of legal activities, previously performed by paralegals, lawyers, and scholars. New solutions enter the law industry: on one hand, software led by artificial intelligence will carry out legal researches in a faster and more accurate way than any practitioners could; on the other hand, chatbots and online platforms are already delivering legal services and providing legal advice, especially for standardized cases, which can be solved through big data analysis. Further, technology can lead to disruption in consolidated markets – for instance, initial coin offerings (ICOs), enabled by blockchain technology, are already an alternative to both initial public offerings (IPOs) and equity crowdfunding, notwithstanding the level of risk embedded in such solution. One may wonder if policymakers and legal practitioners will be eager to lead the ongoing technology revolution, or whether they will passively follow the guidance of other stakeholders, namely legal technology startups.

 

I am very pleased today to welcome such distinguished panelists to the School of Management of our University, Shinawatra International University.

The topics which we will briefly touch upon today are indeed fascinating, and raise relevant questions on the importance of Law and how this latter can keep up with the frenetic pace of technology revolution.

We all wonder how the legal practice is likely to change due to technology disruption, mainly due to the adoption of artificial intelligence. At the same time, legal scholars are also requested to find innovative solutions to complex innovations, which are reshaping equity capital markets and, consequently, Company Law and Corporate Governance.

The agenda of today is as follows:

▪ A brief introduction over technology innovations in the law practice (namely, artificial intelligence and machine learning) and in current legal models (namely, initial coin offerings)

▪ An overview upon technology progress, especially fueled by the European civilization

▪ The relationship between financial markets and corporate governance, with a focus upon equity crowdfunding in Italy

▪ Artificial intelligence and its legal implications

▪ Protection of intellectual property rights related to technologic innovations.
