Artificial Intelligence & GDPR Updater

Event Details


Frankfurt am Main | September 23, 2019

Our 7th annual European Data Conference will be taking place in Frankfurt on Monday September 23.

The half-day event will focus on artificial intelligence (AI), which is becoming an increasingly important area for businesses and data protection specialists. This part of the programme will cover:

An introduction to AI – This session will be led by our Head of Technology Consulting, Professor Peter McBurney, who is a Professor of Computer Science and a former Head of the Department of Infomatics at King’s College London. Peter will explain how AI and machine learning works in a way that lawyers and privacy specialists can understand, looking at some of the examples where we see it used.

The data protection and ethical issues associated with AI – In this session, we will explore the data protection compliance issues and ethical considerations that must be taken into account in relation to AI. Alongside the general GDPR framework, this session will look at how EU data protection regulators are approaching the data protection issues and how wider ethical issues are being addressed.

Alongside this deep dive into AI, the programme includes:

A data protection landscape updater – In this session we will cover the most significant enforcement actions and new guidance coming from the CJEU, EDPB and the German, Dutch, French and UK data protection authorities. This will include an update on developments to the data controller concept, adtech enforcement, possible implications of Schrems II on export and the issues sparking enforcement action and differences in fining practices emerging between the member states.

The half-day session will run from 8.30 – 12.30, followed by lunch and networking.

The conference will also be taking place in Amsterdam on September 24, Paris on September 25 and London on September 26. If you would like to attend one of these events, please mark the relevant location on your RSVP form.
