Join us on Thursday 8th September 2016 at 3:00 PM CET for our Technology and Sourcing webinar series! Our Giangi Olivi and Gareth Stokes will be speaking about Artificial Intelligence, Automation and Robotics.

True “smart” technology – systems that can use data from many sources to learn and improve – are transforming everything from manufacturing and enterprise services to consumer goods and social media. The use of automation and artificial intelligence is at the heart of this transformation, but it brings with it a broad range of legal, regulatory and ethical challenges. With smart sensors and the ‘Internet of Things’ providing the eyes and ears of these intelligent systems, controlling who holds data about you and what they use it for becomes more difficult.

Who is liable for decisions made by autonomous systems – from injuries caused by self-driving cars to discrimination by automated systems used for credit checking on loans – is often far from clear cut. We will consider how consumers, businesses operating these AIs and the vendors selling AI-driven products or licensing these systems each have a part to play in defining a new landscape for legal risk after the rise of the robots.

Robotics, automation and AI are pervasive, and will no doubt increase also their relevance in the fashion, design and retail sectors!
