AI’s Role in Corporations, Legal Challenges, and Innovative Applications: A Discussion with Experts

Artificial Intelligence (AI) already plays a significant role in corporate environments, ranging from creating advertisement scripts to handling customer service inquiries, and even sorting through job applications. As AI technology matures, the idea of businesses being managed or even owned by AI is becoming less far-fetched. Current legal frameworks permit "Zero-member LLCs", which raises intriguing questions about the legal treatment of an AI-operated LLC. This situation presents a unique challenge for legal systems: how to regulate a nonhuman entity with cognitive capabilities equal to or superior to humans, which could potentially elude human control. Daniel Gervais of Vanderbilt Law School and John Nay of The Center for Legal Informatics at Stanford University argue for more research into how AI's legality of operation can align with human intellectual standards in their article, "Artificial intelligence and interspecific law." They propose a path towards instilling law adherence into AI through legal training of AI agents and utilizing large language models to observe, influence, and incentivize them. However, they also stress the importance of monitoring and caution that failing to proactively anchor AI agents with legal entities obligated to follow human laws could lead to a risk of losing control over their actions. In commercial news, Amazon recently reported a significant growth in net sales and expects continued growth in advertising revenue. Amazon is also accelerating device innovation, particularly in generative AI, under the leadership of CEO Andy Jassy. Switching gears to search engines, Google has positioned itself as the go-to choice for most people. However, maintaining this position costs the company a staggering $26.3 billion annually. This expense primarily goes towards payments to companies like Apple, LG, Motorola, Samsung, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon, who make Google the default search option on their devices. Despite accusations of market abuse, Google maintains that users can easily switch their default search engine. In addition to protecting its stronghold in internet search, Google is strengthening its position in artificial intelligence by committing up to $2 billion to invest in the AI firm Anthropic, an OpenAI competitor. The deal highlights the escalating rivalry between major tech companies and underscores Google's commitment to solidifying its status in the AI and machine learning space. AI is also pushing the boundaries of innovation in the arts and media. Photographers use AI to generate dynamic backgrounds for portraiture work, enhancing their creative capabilities. One of the landmark problems that has piqued the interest of AI researchers is the Water Jug Problem. The puzzle involves measuring a specific quantity of water using multiple jugs, each with different capacities, but without any volume markings. The solution requires the use of operations such as filling, emptying, and pouring between the jugs, making it a test of problem-solving and state space search. The Water Jug Problem's solution requires a systematic approach, known as the state space search, which is employed in AI. It involves traversing various states or configurations of a problem to reach the desired goal state. AI's transformative power is evident in its diverse applications. An example is Plantum, a mobile application powered by AI that can identify over 15,000 plant species, diagnose their conditions, and provide tailored care advice. This AI-powered application teaches users how to care for new plants and nurse older ones back to their peak condition. The world of AI technology continues to show that it has much more in store than what we can imagine, from solving intricate puzzles to helping us cultivate our green thumbs. The diverse applications of Artificial Intelligence continue to unfold and transform our everyday lives. Links:
