This webinar will highlight key and critical tort law issues that have arisen from robotic surgery applications aiming at addressing the most recent European regulatory trajectories, ultimately traced by the Proposal for the Artificial Intelligence Act April 21 2021. First of all, the webinar will explore the legal issues that stemmed from the instructive experience of the US litigation on robotic surgery, which was foregoing on account of its cutting-edge and accelerated enhancement of the field. Than, the discussion will analyze the criticalities about products’ malfunctioning to reflect on the (suitable?) rules planned by the European Authorities on the ground of the empirical features of the new step of technological progress in the field in question.
