Artificial Intelligence: Nature And Place In The System Of Criminal Law Relations


The scientific paper presents the author's understanding of artificial intelligence. This so-called “product” relevant to an individual, society, state power, peace, and mankind security can objectively become socially dangerous. It can occur at the stages of artificial intelligence model development, its production and operation. This leads to the need for legal regulation and possible criminal protection of public and environmental safety. Legal regulation is necessary at all stages and criminal protection can be relevant only at the stage of production and operation. Artificial intelligence can be the object of criminal law relations, but not their subject. The presented research work does not propose draft elements of crimes for the protection of AI production and operation relations as there is no clarity about the types and nature of socially dangerous infringements in these areas. This excludes the specific content of corpus delicti necessary in its criminal protection. Certain criminal protection becomes possible only with the practice of publicly unsafe violations in these relations. At the same time, the criminalization of AI production and operation relations in accordance with criminal law principles will allow to deter individuals from acts that create social serious risks for artificial intelligence and to prevent them. This, in turn, will give regulatory branches of law greater opportunities for the artificial development at the level of appropriate models formation, production and operation.
