In this session, we’ll be discussing the legal implications of the latest emerging technologies, including AI, blockchain and IoT, including how to address issues with jurisdiction, liability, releases and contracts with respect to disputes that arise involving such advances. Specifically, as the real-world begins to use these emerging technologies, what are the ramifications in responsibility, liability, and more that we should be thinking about, both as producers and users of these new technologies.
