Regulators and lawmakers around the world are working to stay ahead of technology advancements, including placing increasing scrutiny on how businesses are using (and governing their use of) artificial intelligence (AI). Under proposed and emerging legislation, authorities are poised to begin asking corporations to ensure and evidence that AI systems are fair, transparent and explainable. These developments are in many ways extensions of existing data protection laws, however, regulators are striving to protect individual rights without stifling innovation.
Many organisations are striving to leverage data and AI solutions for efficiency gains and competitive advantage. While AI-powered platforms can deliver tremendous benefits to virtually every business function, unfettered use of these tools could expose firms to reputational, legal and regulatory risk. Without guardrails around AI implementation and governance of data use, a company may unknowingly or inadvertently risk harm to their employees, customers or business partners.

Key themes for the discussion will include:
