A peculiar feature of the third iteration of Call of Duty Modern Warfare has gone almost unnoticed by the media: it will increase the use of AI to block – ‘filter’, as marketing experts would euphemistically say – ‘toxic’ conversations. In other words, an AI will analyse what players are saying in real time, and ‘toxic’ language – whatever that means – will be reported to the moderation team by Andrea Monti – initially published in Italian by Strategikon – an Italian Tech Blog Continue reading “From mass surveillance to individual control, the path goes through videgames and exposes the GDPR”
Last August 18, 2023, a ruling of US District Court for the District of Columbia in the Civil Action No. 22-1564 (BAH) denied copyright protection to an image generated with an AI in execution of the input (‘prompt’) of the user. At a first glance the ruling looks correct, however it is questionable because there are are many examples of copyrighted non-AI- generated content made without human intervention. The main problem with this ruling, indeed, is that it looks at the matter from the (wrong) perspective of the ‘AI subjectivity’ rather than the economic value of the final product by Andrea Monti – initially published in Italian on Strategikon – an Italian Tech Blog Continue reading “AI (non-)copyright. A US ruling apparently sets the record straight, but negatively affects content-creators”

The last draft of the AI regulation risks favouring the race of China and the United States, leaving behind the European countries and creating surveillance problems by Andrea Monti – Initially published in Italian by Wired.it Continue reading “EU rules on artificial intelligence still leave doors open”
This book examines the ever-increasing impact of technology on our lives and explores a range of legal and constitutional questions that this raises.
It considers the extent to which concepts such as ‘cyberspace’ and ‘digital rights’ advance or undermine our understanding of this development and proposes a number of novel approaches to the effective protection of our rights in this rapidly evolving environment.
Finally, it shows how the abuse of the adjective digital has demoted legal rights into subjective and individual claims.
The work will be of particular interest to scholars of privacy, artificial intelligence and free speech, as well as policymakers and the general reader.
