Artificial Intelligence appears to be everywhere at the moment - but what is "artificial" "intelligence"? For a probably long time from today, we will be confronted with very different forms of human-computer collaboration instead of (fully) autonomous systems. While the latter may already pose very deep problems of legal theory, practitioners and regulators will - at least in the next years - have to deal with different types of hybridity, in which human and algorithmic strengths and weaknesses interact. This interaction leads to enormous opportunities and challenges, e.g. as regards legal certainty, legal responsibility and informational privacy. As with other socio-technical innovations, regulators need to deal with issues of uncertainty and develop methods to address the fast-changing nature of technical features. The talk gives an insight in the legal challenges of current developments and proposes different ways of "hybrid regulation for hybrid intelligence".
