The Future of AI


Date: 12 April 2018
Time: 12.30 - 20.00    Venue: Bird & Bird, 12 New Fetter Lane, London EC4A 1JP


Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Automation are beginning to have a real impact on how organisations across most industries operate. They are also changing how private practice and in-house lawyers do their jobs. Whilst we are still at the start of this journey, there are now real lessons that can be drawn out, best practices that can be adopted and risks that can be managed and mitigated.

At this event, we will explore the capabilities and limitations of AI today, as well as the different issues and approaches that need to be considered when implementing an AI project – including intellectual property, regulatory compliance, liability, ethics and implementation challenges. Join us and real industry experts and innovators to discuss the what impact AI is likely to have on organisations and legal professionals, both immediately and in years to come.
