Defensive weapons that can intercept and destroy enemy missiles before they can harm the United States or its allies have been a key part of military strategy for decades, but the rules of the game are changing.

Now the physics and computer science have come together for Dolin in a surprising place: the legal profession. Dolin doesn’t think the traditional structure of the legal universe can survive what’s coming from the world of artificial intelligence.

Currently people who break their backs or suffer a spinal trauma are unable to stand or move even though their legs still work, because the signal which connects their brains to their muscles is disconnected.
