Artificial Intelligence is one of the most rapidly evolving technologies and economic sectors. As companies struggle to understand how AI will impact their business and industries, law departments struggle to understand the legal risks surrounding the use of AI. With much of the focus on legislative proposals, legal departments often miss the fact that AI that utilizes personal information is already subject to various laws in the United States and Europe. The program will explore how the current data privacy regulatory framework impacts AI, discuss new initiatives on the horizon including the EU's AI Act, and review some frameworks in place to evaluate AI.
