Abstract

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is increasingly pervasive in society, prompting debates about its legal status. This paper explores the positive and negative aspects of recognizing AI as a legal entity. It presents the potential advantages, including improved accountability and effective regulation, and highlights the disadvantages, such as ethical dilemmas and legal complexities. Utilizing legal and philosophical methodologies, the study identifies a central problem: the need for a balanced perspective that recognizes the potential benefits and inherent risks of acknowledging AI as a legal entity. Proposed solutions include the development of a separate legal status for AI, a phased approach for integrating AI into existing legal systems, and maintaining some form of human oversight and accountability. The paper underscores the need for interdisciplinary dialogue and suggests avenues for future research, including empirical studies and ethical analyses. As AI continues to advance, understanding its legal implications is of vital importance.
