Generative AI: Hopes and Risks for Transformational Technology

We hear the endless drumbeat of news about artificial intelligence and the monumental impact it’s having on every aspect of our lives–including e-discovery and the practice of law. In the corporate world, AI is now making its way into how we now recruit and retain talent, design and deliver our products and services, interact with our customers, and drive business innovation. But when AI is doing our work for us, there are real discoverability risks. How do you manage issues like the potential for discrimination, injury, or monopoly? What are the issues from preservation to production when the software is continually evolving and subject to an ever-changing set of inputs and ephemeral algorithms? During this session, our panel will share their takes on AI from different yet critical perspectives to help practitioners keep up with this transformational technology.

Speakers: Ron Hedges, Principal, Ronald J. Hedges LLC; Maura R. Grossman, Research Professor, University of Waterloo; Debora Jones, Chief Operating Officer, Exterro; Brian Corbin, VP, Legal Solutions and Operational Excellence, QuisLex; Aaron B.
