Navigating US AI Regulation and Government Policy for In-House Counsel


Event Description

AI is surging into workplaces and society, driven by the rise of ChatGPT and other generative AI tools. This breakthrough, and AI’s potential trajectory, has quickly drawn attention and reaction from regulators. Navigating and complying with the regulatory landscape today poses significant challenges for in-house counsel. What existing legal frameworks govern AI and how might they evolve in the future?


Join us on Thursday, May 16, 2024, at 12 PM ET / 9 AM for the next edition of our Gen AI Deep Dives series as Matthew Ferraro, the Senior Counsel for Cybersecurity and Emerging Technology to the Secretary of Homeland Security; Alexandra Seymour, the Staff Director of the House Homeland Security Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection Subcommittee; and Daniel Lewis, the US CEO of LegalOn Technologies, provide an overview of the United States’ AI regulatory landscape, approach to AI policy, and implications for in-house legal teams. Matthew and Alexandra each join in their personal capacity, not as government representatives.


Discussion topics include:

  • AI’s Existing Legal Framework: AI touches a broad range of legal issues, from data privacy and security to bias and discrimination. What legal frameworks govern AI’s use and development? How does the US stance on AI regulation compare internationally?
  • Executive Order on Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy AI: What does the executive order entail, and how is it being implemented across executive agencies?
  • Regulatory Gaps and Policy Challenges: What policy debates are unfolding, and what are the potential implications for businesses and legal teams?
  • Public Sector AI: How is the US government using AI for the public’s benefit, and what standards are being applied to its use?

Don’t miss this opportunity to gain valuable AI insights from leading policy experts on Capitol Hill!
