Law and Technology: Regulating Artificial Intelligence

The capabilities of artificial intelligence have increased rapidly in recent years, with OpenAI's ChatGPT and other forms of generative AI capturing the public consciousness. These tools have enormous potential for increasing productivity and facilitating human expression, but also entail risks of manipulation and abuse. The advent of sophisticated AI therefore imposes significant challenges for governments and other actors tasked with protecting the public interest. Informed by their diverse perspectives and expertise, panelists Larry Bridgesmith, Daniel Linna, and Kristen Thomasen will discuss how AI should (or should not) be regulated.


This panel is being presented by the Centre for Business Law and Allard Legal Tech Club at the Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia (UBC).
