Developing sound ethical, policy and legal responses to AI requires expertise from the technical fields, especially maths, computer science and engineering, and also the social sciences and humanities, including sociology, psychology, criminology, history, ethics, and philosophy. This subject uses interdisciplinary perspectives to investigate AI, ethics and the law.
