Dr Christopher Markou FRSA is a Leverhulme Fellow and Lecturer at the Faculty of Law and a post-doctoral fellow of Jesus College, The University of Cambridge and course director of ‘AI, Law & Society’ at the King’s College London School of Law. His Leverhulme research project ‘Artificial Intelligence and Legal Evolution’ examines how AI and Big Data are changing the nature of legal practice, education, and challenging the conceptual foundations of the legal system. Christopher’s popular writing on technology law and policy has been featured in outlets such as Scientific American, Newsweek, and The Guardian. His forthcoming book Lex Ex Machina: Law in a Post-Human Era explores the possibility of replacing human judges and lawyers with AI and what that would mean for established notions of the rule of law and a discursive public sphere.
