Three legal experts will be discussing the policy landscape for RAI innovators

The Robotics & AI Special Interest Group (RAI SIG) is hosting a webinar addressing some of the legal and regulatory issues faced by the RAI community in the UK.

In order to explore one of the themes identified in our 2020 Vision Day earlier this year, the RAI SIG brings you a webinar from three legal experts to address some of the Legal and Regulation issues which may affect the Robotics and AI community. This event will help businesses to understand the UK’s policy landscape and the EU’s plans on regulating RAI, as well as best practice on RAI governance/ethics for companies to follow. We will highlight important legal issues to consider in relation to RAI inventions, IP and Patentability and software related innovation.
