In the third of a series of interviews involving experts in the fields of autonomous shipping and artificial intelligence, the UCL Autonomous Shipping Project has interviewed Felix Collin, doctoral candidate at the University of Turku. The interview can be accessed via the UCL Laws YouTube Channel or through the Project’s website.

Project Leader Dr Melis Özdel and Project Editor Olivia Tolson were delighted to speak to Felix who is a member of the Baltic Area Legal Studies steering group and the Algorithmic Agencies and Law research project. He recently contributed a chapter to the book Autonomous Ships and the Law (Routledge, 2020).

During the interview, Felix discusses aspects of his book chapter, including concerns surrounding the manning of autonomous ships, the potential basis for shipowner liability and the role of product liability in this context.

Anyone who wishes to engage with the discussion is encouraged to comment on the Project website or on the YouTube video.
