What In-House Counsel Need to Know About Artificial Intelligence


Event Description

Suddenly, and apparently overnight the world appears to have embraced the potential of generative AI.  It can be difficult as an in-house counsel to work out what the risks are of this new technology in an environment where anyone in your business can simply login and ask Chat-GPT a question or get it to write a proposal.  Make no mistake however – unrestricted use of these conversational chat tools does, like any other machine learning technology, subject your business to risk. Our panel will provide an overview of what the risk landscape is, and the steps you can take to mitigate use of AI effectively.


Join us on Tuesday May 23rd at 8:30am EST in person (New York City), for the next edition of our IHC Fundamentals Series, as we present a panel moderated by Malcolm Pobjoy of Osborne Clarke with colleagues John Buyers and Emily Barwell, who will be joined by Evan Lock of Merlyn Mind.  Together they will discuss the AI risk landscape in the EU and UK and take a closer look at the laws and regulations that are rapidly closing in on this technology.


This in-person CLE presentation aims to provide legal counsels, compliance staff and other professionals who deal with AI and Machine Learning in their day-to-day role with a view on current international risk issues and upcoming changes.


The topics covered will include:

  • An Overview of current Generative AI tools such as Chat-GPT and Google Bard
  • Why unrestricted commercial use of “free” AI models is a bad idea
  • How best to harness the power of Generative AI for your business
  • The general underlying risks of all AI and machine learning systems
  • Where current regulatory trends are pointing, in the US, EU and UK

This program is designed for both experienced and new in-house counsel who handle or manage AI related issues for their organization and want to learn more about the technology – including the nascent regulatory landscape which will cover its use.
