Following on from last year's successful standing-room only event, the ACC Hong Kong and Bird & Bird conference on “Digital Disruption & The Legal Landscape”, ACC Hong Kong is delighted to have Bird & Bird return with a 2018 half-day conference focussed on various aspects of artificial intelligence.


TOPIC: Half-day conference: Artificial Intelligence – the opportunities and challenges

We live in a time of unprecedented change where emerging technologies are redefining the world: blockchain, augmented reality, virtual reality, the internet of things, drones, driverless cars and 3D printing. However, in the legal services sector, arguably the most significant emerging technology is artificial intelligence (AI), not least because of the benefits that it promises to deliver in cost and efficiency for law firms  clients and in-house counsel.  Much discussed and written about, yet still at the embryonic stage, AI is seen by many as the key instrument of change.

Please find the full agenda below for the half-day conference, which will be followed by a networking lunch.
