    How Are Autonomous Vehicles Regulated? w/ Alex Glassbrook

    How Are Autonomous Vehicles Regulated? w/ Alex Glassbrook

    It might sound like the distant future, but the use of AI in transport is already a reality. 

    A British barrister at Temple Garden Chambers, Alex Glassbrook works at the intersection of law and technology of the infrastructure that moves us from A to B: transport. His practice includes the law of advanced, automated and electric vehicles, serious personal injury cases, motor insurance law (including counter-fraud work) and high-value vehicle damages claims. In this episode, he explains how he got into technology law, the regulation of driverless cars and the current obstacles around regulation. We also discuss the history of transport regulation and what we can learn from the past. 

    Since we recorded this episode, the UK Automated and Electric Vehicles Act 2018 was brought into force on Wednesday 21st April (by the AEV Act 2018 (Commencement No.1) Regulations 2021, SI 2021/396). There is currently no list of automated vehicles which the Act can apply to, but it is speculated that the Secretary of State will publish the list soon, as section 1 of the Act requires.

    Regaining Personal Data Control w/ John Arts and Guglielmo Schenardi of Rita Personal Data

    Regaining Personal Data Control w/ John Arts and Guglielmo Schenardi of Rita Personal Data

    After meeting during their studies, John and Guglielmo created Rita, a tool to practically address the data portability issue. Under GDPR and other data protection laws, individuals have a right to request the download of their data in an accessible format. Both John and Guglielmo explain more, but typically this process is very drawn out, with companies, such as Facebook, requiring multiple steps to actually download your data. Rita changes that, allowing you to view and request your data from companies with which it has been shared with. They even calculate how much your data is worth. 

    In our conversation, we addressed how they came across this specific issue, building the tool and its features and the trends they see in data tracking. 

    Rita Personal Data will be launching on the 24th of March. To find out more:
