Program Overview

Who Will Benefit from Attending

Attorneys, business executives, agency officials, consultants, and anyone else needing to understand Generative AI today, including its uses and risks

Why You will Benefit from Attending

Generative AI (GAI) is rapidly changing the way we create and interact with content of all kinds, ranging from text and images to computer code, and it is already disrupting a wide range of industries including, increasingly, the practice of law. This program will explore a number of the key legal issues that arise in connection with this transformative technology.

This program will explore one of the hottest issues in this area - the intersection of AI and IP law, including the protectability of AI-generated works and the infringement issues that have been raised regarding the training and use of generative AI tools.

We will also discuss the privacy implications of AI as well as provide updates on regulatory developments involving AI. Finally, we will address the development of AI use policies and wrap up with a discussion of ethics issues relating to use of generative AI in the practice of law.

Our speakers are experts in their fields and are also engaging presenters. As an industry networking platform, this unique Seattle conference provides meaningful and valuable insights that will help you stay on top of the cutting-edge issues for your industry.

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.
