AI Regulation and Governance: A Cross-Jurisdictional Approach

June 5 @ 08:30 - 17:30

MediaFutures associate professor Samie Touileb is giving a keynote speech on AI technology at this conference.

With the EU’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) Act being adopted and various major jurisdictions deliberating AI policy at both national and international levels, this conference provides a timely platform to navigate the myriad legal and policy issues AI presents, from intellectual property and tort law to safety legislation. The conference contributes to shaping the discourse on the governance of artificial intelligence in Europe and beyond.
