‘Rules as Code’ will let computers apply laws and regulations. But over-rigid interpretations would undermine our freedoms

Interpreting legal rules is a very human process. How do we enable computers to read and apply them?
The growing use of artificial intelligence in health care should be driven by careful consideration of what is important to members of the public. (Shutterstock)
