About the Program

Principally due to the success of various machine learning techniques, AI is no longer a technology of the future. Industrial actors increasingly adopt AI-based applications to improve their business operations or bring innovative products to market. And consumers routinely engage with AI that power speech recognition systems, social media feeds, mortgage apps, and myriad others. Hundreds of billions of dollars have been invested in AI development this decade alone, and global business value derived from AI is reported to have exceeded $1 trillion in 2018 and is forecast to reach almost $4 trillion in 2022. While the economic value of AI technology is unquestionable, it poses unique challenges with respect to intellectual property, managing and protecting data, and regulatory oversight.

This program will provide practitioners with practical guidance for identifying and managing legal risks and opportunities relating to AI systems by focusing on intellectual property, data privacy and security, and current and future regulatory environments. In addition, specific attention will be given to issues affecting digital health and insurance technologies.
