BFKN's Corporate, Fintech, and Private Equity & Venture Capital Groups are proud to present this webinar for investors and corporate managers on the unique risks posed by investments in artificial intelligence (“AI”).

Join a panel of industry veterans during this complimentary webinar to learn the basics of artificial intelligence and machine learning, the unique legal and regulatory risks these technologies present, and how to tap this monumental revenue-generating opportunity. 

Although new issues are developing daily, some of the topics we intend to cover include:

  • The Basics. Understanding the underlying technology and the myriad applications and businesses.
  • Legal & Regulatory Concerns. New and old, what laws and regulatory regimes will apply to AI and areas of future potential regulation.
  • Addressing AI Risk. How investors and corporate managers can use AI technologies to improve and optimize products and processes and strategies for managing and mitigating the risks posed by businesses deploying AI.

We encourage you to submit questions and topic suggestions when registering for the program. We have applied for 1.0 hour of general CLE credit in Illinois and to receive CLE credit for this webinar, attendees must watch the entire program. We will also apply for 1.0 general credit hour in the additional states requested based on the attendees completing the full program and the requirements of each state.
