Program Overview

Who Should Order

In-house and outside counsel, business executives, agency officials, and consultants involved with privacy, data security, and other consumer protection issues arising from use of AI in operations and marketing

Why You will Benefit from the Replay

Big data, machine learning, and new applications for artificial intelligence are revolutionizing technology businesses, academic research, and increasingly, the practice of law. In this timely new conference, we'll explore how AI technologies are inextricably tied to privacy and security issues.

Our exploration starts with how AI fits into existing general privacy regulations in the United States and the European Union. We'll then turn to legislative initiatives to develop policies, at the state and federal levels, to specifically address issues arising from the use of AI. This will include regulation of specifically sensitive consumer information involving health care, biometric applications, and education. You'll have an opportunity to hear directly from state and federal consumer protection agencies on their enforcement priorities relating to AI.

We'll wrap up with practical tips for designing and implementing AI-related privacy policies and notices, and for dealing with AI as a disruptive technology. These include copyright and free speech issues when machines create the content. You'll have a chance to learn about the most effective strategies for prioritizing privacy compliance as your organization implements AI data innovation.

We hope you will be able to join us for both the program and the reception at the end of the first day. Register now to reserve your seat.
