Adaptation of criminal and civil law in view of scientific-technical progress (artificial intelligence, dao and digital human)



Today there is a powerful challenge to legal doctrine. It is associated with
outspreading into all spheres of life by artificial intelligence and new technologies
(blockchain, artificial improving of the biological body and human abilities). In this
regard, it is necessary to resolve a number of important issues concerning the
possibility of recognizing artificial intelligence as the subject (person) of the legal
relationship and the subject (person) of the crime, the qualification of the actions of
the improved human and encroachment on him, finding the person of responsibility
for decentralized legal entities.
