AI and Law/Regulation in Australia and Globally: The Trajectory to Date
Wednesday, January 10, 2024 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM)
A discussion and comment on the role of law and regulation in the AI space and what is currently underway in this regard. This webinar discusses and compares what is currently in play in Australia vs what is currently being considered to be implemented, in light of and in consideration of what the current thinking in the AI space, particularly in relation to Generative AI, with other parts of the world, in particular EU and USA. Based on the current activity across the world, I will discuss the main areas where regulation has so far been considered most relevant and important. Further, what others have to date decided to protect and how? I then consider, noting there is no one single answer for what is to come at this stage, the importance and relevance of regulation of AI, considering the crossovers as well likely to occur with privacy, consumer rights and protection and more, including the ongoing ability to claim rights over and protect intellectual property. Objectives: 1. AI laws and regulations are essential. 2. AI regulations are crucial and cannot be ignored. 3. Ensuring privacy, consumer rights and protection in the realm of AI.
