The computing systems and programs currently pushing the boundaries of artificial intelligence (AI) may still be a long way off from self-awareness (the hallmark of true AI), but they are creating very real challenges for human society.

Presently, these new systems represent a host of issues in the labor and employment space, and while risks may not be on the same level as those of their science fiction relatives (looking at you HAL9000), the increasing reliance on intelligence systems can present legal challenges for employers.
