About the event
As electronic data sets continue to grow and regulatory pressure continues to increase, answering regulatory request is continuing to be a huge challenge for law firms and corporations. Competition, financial oversight, privacy, consumer protection, tax, fraud, bribery, health care, environmental, are just a few of the areas that are under increasing attention of the authorities.
For quite some time, regulatory agencies use advanced AI and data science to analyze data sets they obtain through dawn raids and information requests. In responds, more and more law firms and corporations now use the same technology to be at par with these agencies. As a result, technology has completely changed how a regulatory request can be handled. Parties not using technology are a giant leap behind, get higher fines, take much longer and spent more resources handling such requests.
In the panel discussion, participants will share their view on and experiences with the use of the latest AI and Data Science technology to deal with regulatory requests and investigations. Actively involving the audience, the panel will talk about the benefits and discuss how technology can best be used to mutual benefit of all parties involved. They will also address questions about the defensible application of these technologies and talk about accepted best practices.
