When it comes to the tech industry, the 2020s have been a decade of emerging rules.
But will the same hold true as the use of artificial intelligence quickly grows?
Join us and our friends at Ontra for this CLE-eligible webinar on Oct. 11, where our expert panel will explore the potential for regulation of AI.
We’ll also look at what regulatory developments could mean in practice, particularly for in-house law departments.
Key topics to be discussed:
Emerging intellectual property and data security concerns
Potential effects on legal ethics rules
Past regulation of emerging technologies
Practical applications — and how you can avoid pitfalls
