One Step Beyond … From Ethics to Reality: Buying and managing AI in the 21st century | London

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) can be used to solve problems across all sectors and industries, dramatically improving process efficiencies if properly introduced and pro-actively managed. Automating work processes or customer interactions, detecting fraud, generating personalised offerings, optimising production or maintenance schedules, turbocharging trading – there are a plethora of potential benefits to gain from implementing AI and ML tools. Experience dictates, however, that introducing AI into a business is not a simple “plug and play” or “set and forget” process.

Gaining board confidence for implementation can be a challenge. How do you screen out the noise from the genuinely valuable differentiators? Concerns around ROI and demonstrable benefits, disruption to traditional processes and people and a variety of significant legal considerations are all factors to consider in making the right decision. And, once you have made your procurement decision, you need to understand how to properly manage AI and ML tools on an ongoing basis.

Join us for an evening of exploratory conversation on how AI and ML could be relevant to your business, potential commercial advantages and legal considerations to be aware of. We will look at both procuring AI tools from suppliers, as well as legal issues to take into consideration around the implementation of AI within the enterprise.

We are delighted to be joined by two keynote speakers: Shamus Rae, CEO of Engine B and Sana Khareghani, Head of UK Government Office for Artificial Intelligence at DCMS and BEIS.

In addition, we look forward to welcoming our guest panellists, including:

  • Vijayalaxmi Aithani, Head of Enterprise Legal, Corporate External & Legal Affairs at Microsoft Limited
  • Chris James, Assistant General Counsel and Head of Digital & Innovation in the Data Privacy and Digital Legal team at HSBC Group
  • Heba Bevan, CEO at UtterBerry
  • Alejandro Saucedo, Director of Machine Learning Engineering at Seldon Technologies

We will then continue the conversation over drinks and canapés.
