Title of Paper: 
Sociology of Law for Artificial Intelligence: digital self-regulation & legal innovation 

Subdisciplinary Area: Sociology of Law and Bioethics

Keywords: Artificial Intelligence, digitalization of society

Abstract: Artificial Intelligence is considered as the great transformative dynamic of the 21st century spread over all social fields. Historically the rise of new techno-epistemic paradigms has challenged political and legal settings. Beyond the unfruitful dilemma between technofetishism and technophobia, sociology of Law interprets the sociolegal conditions of digitalization of societies. Inequality, discrimination, alienation and exclusion are stemming from our society structure and not from technology per se. The presentation makes a critical analysis of past regulating experiences of technological innovation, searches for principles governing the paradigm of Artificial Intelligence; including ethical questioning, political targeting to institutionalize more inclusive and democratized processes and legal innovative thinking in order to maximize our benefits while minimizing the perils.
