Presentation: Throwing a Ball in the House—Why Your Parents Taught You to be Careful with AI

Depending on the source, the benefits and abilities of AI are virtually without limit, at least given enough time. It’s also the shiny new toy, and there is a temptation to play with it. But, like new toys, if you play with it too much, or beyond what it was meant for, you can break things, and that’s no fun. In-house counsel, in their supervisory role, may have to be the parent warning their children not to play with their new toy too rough, or things will get broken. This session will address:

  • How should in-house counsel assess risks for different use cases for AI?
  • What guidelines should in-house counsel consider giving to their business?
  • What areas need the most oversight?
  • How is the law evolving that should inform your advice?
