Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and the Internet of Things will soon change and revolutionize many areas of life. However, the development and use of artificial intelligence also entails several (legal) requirements for companies: With the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will become effective in May 2018, data protection law is facing a reform that presents companies with enormous challenges. In particular the GDPR strengthens the rights of data subjects, i.e. natural persons whose personal data are processed. The topics discussed include the right to be forgotten, the Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) and Privacy-by-Design/Default.
On 1st March, our colleague Dennis Kurpierz will give a lecture at the AI Summit on the subject of Artificial Intelligence and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In his presentation he explains the new requirements of the GDPR and raises companies’ awareness for the use of Artificial Intelligence in terms of data protection law.
