Pierce Atwood partner Matt Stein will chair a panel titled, “Emergence of Artificial Intelligence Technologies,” where participants will discuss current and planned applications of AI technologies in various industries, including health care, life sciences, and finance. The group will look at the ethical and data protection issues stemming from these technologies, and examine different use studies.

Pierce Atwood associate Vivek Rao will chair the panel, “Emerging Regulatory Frameworks for Artificial Intelligence Technologies and Big Data.” This panel will discuss the unintended and negative consequences of AI and machine learning, which have sparked proposals for regulation in the US and EU. Panelists will examine the steps that legislators and regulators are considering in terms of regulatory outlines, and how the industry is responding through self-policing and ethics frameworks.
