THE TECH BOOK: A Guide for the Legal Expert of the Digital Age Mission Statement This book aims to cover six most recent and significant technologies. Our fundamental motivations are increasing the technological literacy of legal experts and beyond while enhancing cooperation and collaboration in the technology field. With many excellent platforms already distributing opinion and coverage of new technologies issues and research, our approach features a selection of themed short articles from experts that provoke and influence the debate on pressing issues of importance. At the same time, we expect to foster dialogue among different actors by providing a stage for regulatory and policy recommendations. For this project, our primarily targeted audiences are legal experts, policymakers, as well as international organizations. Authors Artificial Intelligence Takis C.
