We will assits you to realize an effective legal research by studying and organizing legal issues on handling genome data and personal information such as medical information, information on personal rights such as the right of privacy, information on secret of communication, etc.
We will consider legal issues such as automatic driving, diagnosis and treatment of diseases, genome drug discovery, and recommend the necessary information law policy to promote social implementation of artificial intelligence technology.
In preparing for a period where artificial intelligence exceeds technical singularity, we will conduct free and vigorous discussion on problems of the legal system that will arise in the future.
