Ethics Quickfire: Algorithmic Manipulation
Dr Allan McCay is Deputy Director of The Sydney Institute of Criminology, and Academic Fellow at the University of Sydney Law School. He is also an Affiliate Member of the Centre for Agency, Values and Ethics at Macquarie University.
His philosophical interests relate to free will and punishment, and ethical issues emerging from neuroscience, neurotechnology, and artificial intelligence. In relation to legal practice, he is interested in behavioural legal ethics, and the future of legal work in light of automation. Although formerly a commercial litigator with Baker McKenzie in Hong Kong, a large section of his work focusses on the criminal law and he coordinates the Legal Research units at the Sydney Law School. As well as two edited books and numerous academic and other publications, he is the author of a forthcoming report on neurotechnology, law and the legal profession that will be published by the Law Society of England and Wales.
