Industry 4.0 is increasingly transforming the work environment, including the formation of contracts. But is it possible for machines to form contracts? How legally secure are they? And who is responsible if machines err? On April 14, the Legal-Testbed project will be featured at the Hannover Messe. As part of the panel discussion "Legal-testbed - for the (legally) secure implementation of Industrie 4.0", Professor Georg Borges will discuss the above with project partners.
