To this end, the paper analyzes the main technical characteristics and the most relevant legal problems, pointing out in the cases under examination the most significant critical aspects of the interaction between technology and law. In consideration of the analysis carried out, the contribution outlines useful tools to deal with the issues that emerged and to draw an evolution of the legal regulation based on the related change in the relationship between law and technology: the suggested direction takes shape in the preventive and proactive approach of incorporating the law into the technique, accompanied by the attribution of the right to the comprehensibility and contestability of the technology and by a logic of accountability.
