Are Legal Advancements at Pace with Technical Advancements? by Bhumi Agrawal and Shweta Pandey
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a novel invention and is developing at a rapid pace, such that we humans have forgotten to keep a track of these upgradations. These technically advanced machines have eased out the ways of doing our daily chores to such an extent that human dependence has increased. A pertinent question which must have arisen several times but is yet unanswered is that of this human reliance. The repercussions have been given a back seat amidst all the perquisites which humans receive from such creations of science.
