In the first of a series of exciting interviews with experts in the fields of autonomous shipping and artificial intelligence, Project Leader Dr Melis Özdel and Project Editor Olivia Tolson interview Professor Erik Røsæg of the University of Oslo.
It was an honour to speak to Professor Røsæg who has extensive experience in the area of Maritime Law. He recently edited, with Professors Henrik Ringbom and Trond Solvang, the book Autonomous Ships and the Law (Routledge, 2020). This cutting-edge work explores autonomous shipping from a range of legal perspectives.
Following some introductory questions, our interview focuses on Professor Røsæg’s chapter from the book, ‘Diabolus ex machina’. His answers are thought-provoking and we would encourage anyone interested to contribute to the debate by leaving a comment on this blog post or on the video embedded below.
