Please join Holland & Knight and Florida State University College of Law for three informative panel discussions on the in-demand topic of artificial intelligence (AI). Our distinguished moderators and panelists will begin with an overview of AI and then address regulatory issues surrounding AI and the future implications of its use.

The forum will conclude with a keynote speech by Professor Anu Bradford, a leading scholar on the European Union's regulatory power and a sought-after commentator on digital regulation, among other subjects. Professor Bradford is the author of the recently published book Digital Empires: The Global Battle to Regulate Technology (Oxford University Press, 2023), a lauded work that addresses themes at the heart of all of the panels for this event.

We hope you can join us for this highly informative presentation. Please RSVP below to attend either in person at Holland & Knight's Washington, D.C., office or online via Zoom only.

Panel 2: Legal and Regulatory Issues of AI

As breakthrough technology with the potential to touch virtually every aspect of our economy and society, AI has already drawn the attention of lawmakers and regulators. The legal and regulatory responses are still nascent, however, and are sure to remain an important priority for many lawmaking and regulatory bodies. This panel will foreground the legal and regulatory issues that have already emerged and will continue to develop.

Panel 3: Implications of AI

Although AI's transformative potential is often covered in the news and we have already encountered AI in our work and everyday lives, the full scope of this advanced technology's implications might not be readily apparent. This panel will consider the impacts of AI that are already being felt, as well as what the future may hold as AI continues to affect businesses, governments and individual citizens in the years to come.
