Although scientists have calculated the significant positive welfare effects of Artificial Intelligence (AI), fear mongering continues to hinder AI development. If regulations in this sector stifle our active imagination, we risk wasting the true potential of AIs dynamic efficiencies. Not only would Schumpeter dislike us for spoiling creative destruction, but the AI thinkers of the future would also rightfully see our efforts as the 'dark age' of human advancement. This article provides a brief philosophical introduction to artificial intelligence; categorizes artificial intelligence to shed light on what we have and know now and what we might expect from the prospective developments; reflects thoughts of worldwide famous thinkers to broaden our horizons; provides information on the attempts to regulate artificial intelligence from a legal perspective; and discusses how the legal approach needs to be to ensure the balance between artificial intelligence development and human control over them, and to ensure friendly artificial intelligence. © 2016 Gonenc Gurkaynak, Ilay Yilmaz & Gunes Haksever.

Computer Law and Security Review | Year: 2014

This paper aims to provide a comparative overview and evaluation of various legal frameworks for electronic communications security in light of the recent developments in the electronic communications sector. The article also includes an insight on European Union and Turkish legal environment for data protection security in electronic communications sector. The dynamic and ever-changing nature of electronic communication technologies brings brand new opportunities for quick access to extensive information and communication through integrated channels. On the other hand such dynamic nature paves the way for new challenges and concerns regarding electronic communications security. Both national and international sector regulators and policy-makers are encountering new threats for security of electronic communications while trying to adapt to convergence and the ongoing tendency for Internet Protocol ("IP") based digital networks. Various legal frameworks come into force accordingly and legal security measures are created by the regulators and the sector actors, in order to overcome security concerns. Evolution of electronic communication technologies and new challenges that it yields, forces national and international authorities to work for unified solutions and cooperation in fighting against these challenges. © 2014 Kah Leng Ter.

Computer Law and Security Review | Year: 2015

This paper aims to provide a comparative overview and evaluation of various legal frameworks for electronic money and online payment matters by mainly evaluating and comparing U.S., EU and Turkish Law, occasionally making a comparative analysis in terms of conformity as to how EU countries assess or accept European Commission ("the Commission") regulations. By realizing a comparative study, this paper analyses whether the world, especially the EU is on the right path and moving forward while trying to recover ambiguities and faults in EC Directives. This paper also evaluates new regulations in Turkey in both general and comprehensive aspects, and reveals the importance of small differences in the Law compared to the EC Directives and how these do affect Turkey and can make them better. © 2015 Gönenç Gürkaynak & Ilay Yilmaz.
