Time: 11:00 a.m. EDT

Duration: 90 minutes

The advent of AI and its near ubiquity in our daily lives has presented significant legal, ethical, and moral questions. With the exponential growth of AI over the past year, these questions are ever more urgent, and consumers, entrepreneurs, attorneys, academics, myriad organizations, and governments and regulators (in particular) across the globe are confronting and addressing these questions as never before.

In this webinar, a panel of expert attorneys, academics and regulators will examine some of the bourgeoning regulatory regimes across the globe, most principally the European Union’s Artificial Intelligence Act (“AI Act”), expected to largely go into effect in 2026. At present, the AI Act is set to be the most comprehensive extraterritorial regulation of AI by any government in the world.

The panel will also take a look at some key regulatory developments in other jurisdictions, including Brazil’s Bill No. 2338/2023, which provides for the use of Artificial Intelligence, and Canada’s AI and Data Act, introduced as part of its Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2022, as well as AI-related developments in the U.S., China, Taiwan, South Korea, UAE, and UK. The panel will also address some notable guidance developed by a couple of key international organizations, including the OECD’s AI Principles; the Council of Europe’s Framework Convention on Artificial Intelligence, Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law; and UNESCO’s Recommendation on the Ethics of AI.

While the panel will provide overviews of these select regulatory regimes and international organization guidance, the webinar will primarily focus on the implications for cross-border data transfers and the accompanying privacy and data security risks.

The webinar is scheduled for 90 minutes, during which time you may ask questions of the panel, who will endeavor to address all that time allows.
