From Victoria, you will learn:

Are you doing enough to future-proof yourself as a lawyer?

The world is changing at an exponential pace. Digital transformation fundamentally alters how business operates and delivers value to customers. To survive as a business and remain relevant as a professional we need to adapt, sometimes even reinvent ourselves. But do the legal industry, and the lawyers in it, understand this change at its core and are we taking enough action to adapt to the new reality? Are you future proofing yourself? Do you see how it requires cultural change? A shift in mindset? The new skills you need? What made us successful in our role as lawyers up until now will not, alone, serve us as well going forward. In her presentation Victoria Swedjemark will walk you through the fundamental elements of digital transformation and how it impacts lawyers and share her thoughts on how lawyers can adapt to a changing reality.

From Richard, you will learn:

Machines as Creators of Intellectual Property

The development of AI and machine learning software blurs the boundaries between the physical, digital, and biological worlds. The technology transition brings into question several fundamental IP concepts. Seeing that the IP laws were written at a time when only natural intelligence and human cognitive processing were contemplated, AI challenges many traditional IP legal notions such as “originality”, “copying”, “author”, “designer”, “inventor”, “inventive step” and the “average consumer”. Is the current state of IP law suited to meets tomorrow’s needs? A closer look at the current legal requirements for IP protection reveals a number of questions that call for further discussion.
