Ideas:
“  I am working on: (a) expressing contracts in code (do we need intermediate representations? or maybe domain-specific programming languages... and some funky new compilers?) (b) problems of automation in the context of contract law: self-enforcement, algorithmic trading, machine learning, autonomous agents - what difference do they make, if any? Apart from problems of liability allocation - how do they affect intention, validity and enforceability? (c) smart contract regulation (d) breaking the Feigenbaum Bottleneck!  ”
