Professor Christian Twigg-Flesner contributes to ELI response
The European Law Institute (ELI) recently published its response to a European Commission consultation on reforms to the Product Liability Directive and liability for Artificial Intelligence systems. Professor Christian Twigg-Flesner contributed to ELI’s response, focusing in particular on the Product Liability Directive and building on the Guiding Principles he developed for ELI’s Innovation Paper on Guiding Principles for updating the Product Liability Directive for the Digital Age (2021).
Christian said: ‘The question of liability for injury and damage where digital elements or Artificial Intelligence may have been a key factor is a challenging one. Lawmakers are finally grappling with these, and it’s good to see that the Guiding Principles are now starting to influence law reform discussions.’
