Keeping innovation in check or holding it back?
In an age of constant, complex and disruptive technological innovation, knowing what, when, and how to structure regulatory interventions is becoming increasingly difficult. Regulators believe they have only bad options: charge in without holding the sufficient facts and cripple innovative companies, or do nothing and leave unpredictable and potentially dangerous technologies such as AI to advance unchecked.

Knowing how to anticipate and adapt to incoming legislation is equally hard. Those who develop and use new technologies in their business must constantly stay on top of changes to the rules. The last year has seen a raft of far-reaching regulations come into force. This includes GDPR, which was enacted almost a year to the day of this event — the impact of which is still being established.

This event will see leading lawyers, data protection experts and those building new technologies lead discussion around the implications of regulations and data
