Abstract: With artificial intelligence, meaning the development of computer systems to perform tasks that would normally require human intelligence and judgment, now permeating many areas including healthcare, business, education and finance, its regulation has now become more vital. This is especially so in light of the risks it poses and the lack of current legislation dealing with such risks. In light of this, this Article seeks to examine two of the most salient issues which crop up in this regard, those being its personality and accountability. Besides such discussions, the author will also provide recommendations as to how a balance may be struck between not stifling AI innovation and protecting the public from the dangers AI poses. Finally, the author proposes the ‘corporation approach’ so that AI would be able to own property and be civilly and criminally liable like corporations, whilst ensuring that enough human oversight is present.
