Make your AI product a success with “The Compliant AI Product Launch in Germany / EU “. Equip yourself with the knowledge and confidence to plan, build, execute and steer through the process of bringing an AI product to market and avoid costly drawbacks due to the intricacies of AI related legal challenges.

To create some common ground, your journey begins with an in-depth understanding of AI and generative AI. Engage with the workings of revolutionary products like ChatGPT and comprehend the legal implications they bring along. Grasp how AI can be broadly applied, identify patterns and uses, and learn about the strategic implications generative AI holds for corporates. Whether impacting core value creation processes or support processes, the influence of AI is undeniably significant.

We then move to the heart of AI – Data. The seminar emphasizes data protection regulations, with a special focus on GDPR, always tying it back to the stages of AI project management. We also delve into the contentious subject of personal and personalizable data.
Subsequently, we tackle the thorny issue of bias and the resulting discrimination in AI. This is followed by an insightful session on product liability, an intriguing topic given AI’s probabilistic nature.

The seminar continues on the following day with a deep dive into IP and Copyright, acknowledging the role of open source licenses. Up next is a detailed explanation of the EU AI ACT followed by the EU Data Act, both legislative pieces not yet in force or finalized, but ones that are set to massively impact today’s product development decisions. We then discuss the EU DMA Digital Market Act.

After the information-rich sessions presented interactively, we facilitate an in-depth discussion on the impact and practical guidelines for implementing AI in a compliant way.

The seminar culminates with the demonstration and practical tips on tools that can be immediately implemented in your legal practice. For validation of your learning, we administer a short test, the successful completion of which awards you with our course certificate.
