Abstract

While the legal framework for AI is under much discussion, we need to consider the future where AI will be adopted into every aspect of our daily lives. As a software package, AI cannot be perfect and is greatly influenced by the intent of its user or its creator. In this regard, AI can be used to breach or strengthen cybersecurity. As such, there has been much discussions on how to make use of AI technology for cybersecurity while adopting it at the same time. In fact, there are already many cases of using AI to identify vulnerabilities or using AI for hacking. So what are the most reasonable set of regulatory measures to ensure balanced use of AI? This research seeks to identify the legal challenges of dealing with AI hacking. To accomplish this objective, we need to deduce elements of AI hacking from cybersecurity properties of AI technology and find real cases to analyze. Based on analysis of these real cases, this paper will propose the possible legal challenges and tasks ahead.
