Тhe robots were exhibits that had little to do with real life, rather elements of the abstract future for non-specialists several years ago. The modern level of technology development entails the inclusion of artificial intelligence in the everyday life of a person: smart phones, electronic assistants, robot vacuum cleaners, parking robots. Relationships involving artificial intelligence have so far not been largely regulated by law. Expanding the participation of robots in people's lives can lead to unpredictable consequences. The development of legal norms is required to minimize the risk of harm, lawyers and engineers are discussing the content of these norms.
