Just Published - Artificial Intelligence: beyond the hype?

Guest Editor:

Jean Paul Simon, JPS Public Policy Consulting, [email protected]


Over the past few years the issue of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has increasingly come to the fore as a technological trend. A February 2018 GSMA report states: “Many regard 2017 as the year AI sprang out of fiction and fully entered the mainstream consciousness for the first time” (GSMA, 2018: 4). AI is now expected to be one of the most pervasive disruptive technologies.

This special issue is devoted to AI so as to better document the issue (what is AI?) and offer some analysis of its various dimensions (what kinds of applications are there now and envisaged?), the challenges it brings (what issues are arising or might arise, e.g. ethical, legal, socio-economic, employment, etc?), and whether additional regulation is needed.
