Frank Pasquale is an expert on the law of artificial intelligence (AI), algorithms, and machine learning. He is a Professor of Law at Brooklyn Law School, an Affiliate Fellow at Yale University's Information Society Project, and a member of the American Law Institute. He was previously the Piper & Marbury Professor of Law at the University of Maryland. He was recently appointed to the U.S. National AI Advisory Committee. He is co-editor-in-chief of the Journal of Cross-Disciplinary Research in Computational Law (CRCL), based in the Netherlands, and a member of an Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence on Automated Decision-Making & Society (ADM+S). His book The Black Box Society: The Secret Algorithms That Control Money and Information (Harvard University Press 2015) has been recognized internationally as a landmark study on the law and political economy of information asymmetries. His latest book, New Laws of Robotics: Defending Human Expertise in the Age of AI (Harvard University Press 2020) develops a new political economy of automation, in which human capacities are the irreplaceable center of an inclusive economy. 

Pasquale’s 2015 book, The Black Box Society, develops a social theory of reputation, search, and finance, while promoting pragmatic reforms to improve the information economy. The journal Big Data & Society hosted an interdisciplinary symposium on The Black Box Society in 2020, to mark the fifth anniversary of the book’s publication. Pasquale’s latest book, New Laws of Robotics: Defending Human Expertise in the Age of AI (Harvard University Press, 2020) analyzes the law and policy influencing the adoption of AI in varied professional fields. The book was a finalist for the American Association of Publishers PROSE awards (in the legal studies and criminology category). It attracted favorable notices from Wired and the Financial Times. Pasquale has also co-edited The Oxford Handbook of Ethics of AI (Oxford University Press, 2020), has edited or co-edited three other books, and co-authored a casebook on administrative law.
