Uber and Lyft are leaving Austin – at least for now. Austin voted down Prop. 1 about fingerprinting of drivers. (Did you know there is a locally based ride-hailing service ready to fill the void? Check it out!)

But in the future ride hailing services might not need fingerprinting at all because your driver might very well be an autonomous car. Computerization however, comes with its own new set of legal questions.

Please join us to hear from a legal expert who knows how which questions to ask from our AI-driven future. Kay Firth Butterfield held a talk for us last fall, and her topic and discussion was so popular with the audience that we were happy to be able to book her again.

She explains: “The Internet of Things will give us massively helpful control of items in and out of our homes. The questions of privacy as we allow machines into our homes and monitor our activities are matters for deep and urgent discussions. Perhaps the largest item so far in the inter-connectivity of our future is the self-driving car. Whether fully or partially autonomous it raises issues of law, safety, society and more. This talk will explore how the self-driving car will change the legal and social landscape in just a few years time.”
