The future of law in an autonomous era

How can we enforce policies that can be interpreted and shared by machines? Existing regulations have been drafted by humans for humans. Translating laws into machine-interpretable code will allow us to govern the behavior of autonomous systems in a policy-compliant manner, while adapting them as laws change. Under Flying Forward, a Horizon Europe project, VERSES and its partners developed a geospatial infrastructure using IEEE’s Spatial Web standards to automatically enforce rules and policies in Urban Air Mobility. Our solution allows current laws to be parsed into machine-readable models and interpreted programmatically, reducing human interpretation and automating their enforcement and auditability.
