This book discusses the necessity and perhaps urgency for the regulation of algorithms on which new technologies rely; technologies
that have the potential to re-shape human societies. From commerce and farming to medical care and education, it is difficult
to find any aspect of our lives that will not be affected by these emerging technologies. At the same time, artificial intelligence,
deep learning, machine learning, cognitive computing, blockchain, virtual reality and augmented reality, belong to the fields
most likely to affect law and, in particular, administrative law. The book examines universally applicable patterns in administrative
decisions and judicial rulings. First, similarities and divergence in behavior among the different cases are identified by
analyzing parameters ranging from geographical location and administrative decisions to judicial reasoning and legal basis.
As it turns out, in several of the cases presented, sources of general law, such as competition or labor law, are invoked
as a legal basis, due to the lack of current specialized legislation. This book also investigates the role and significance
of national and indeed supranational regulatory bodies for advanced algorithms and considers ENISA, an EU agency that focuses
on network and information security, as an interesting candidate for a European regulator of advanced algorithms. Lastly,
it discusses the involvement of representative institutions in algorithmic regulation.
