Abstract

In our highly digitized era, the lawyer is asked to answer the question whether digital algorithms are software agents attributable to the modern category of the e-person, or they are entities to be relegated to the world of reification, like res. In reality, the digital technology has no authentic sensations, as it makes “only recordings” of signals, without having sensations (conscious or unconscious) and without having a cognitive and affective mind. Therefore, despite the technological and post-modern point of view, the cybernetic or electronic person cannot be legally assimilated to man, nor can he be considered attributable in the same way as the human being for the absence of awareness of himself and his actions.
