About the Program

The European Union’s recently adopted AI Act represents one of the most comprehensive attempts globally to govern the development and deployment of AI technologies. The reach of this new regulation extends far beyond the EU and will significantly impact providers of AI tools worldwide, both directly and indirectly.

We will break down some of the complexities of the law to help you proactively issue-spot AI-related legal issues facing your clients. The session will cover practical points on how the AI Act will impact various business sectors and what it specifically means for US-based operations, as well as a step-by-step plan to help guide clients on their journey to compliance and, and how to assess and manage AI technology providers to ensure compliance across borders.
