Ghost in the LLC

cropped-logo-2048px.jpgToday we have a real treat. Professor Shawn Bayern joins us to talk about artificial intelligence “inhabiting” business organizations. The ghost in the LLC, if you will.

You may recall our conversation with Matt Scherer recently, where he took issue with Bayern’s ideas on business entities without humans in them.

This conversation is the “counterpoint” to that conversation, at least at one level. Then we go deeper. Way deeper. And we touch on the things that really matter in this area of law, thought, and philosophy.

One warning, though: We go deep fast. And we don’t lay a lot of groundwork for the things we launch into.

So if you haven’t heard our talk with Matt Scherer yet, go listen to that first. That will give you background enough to ride along on these issues.

Or just jump in. Do what you feel.
