Rise of the machines: GDPR vs Artificial Intelligence (full day)

On the one hand, advocates of artificial intelligence and machine-learning are telling anyone who will listen that the future is here and if you’re not using AI to choose what clothes to wear, you’re going to left in the dust. On the other, sceptics tell you that we’re in the opening scene of a dystopian nightmare, and soon the only person left is going to be Vincent Price / Charlton Heston / Will Smith (delete according to preference), picking through the remains of human society.

And you’re just a regular DPO or IG professional trying to work out how this affects your role. I’m here to help. The aim of this course is to demystification and hype-popping. I’m not here to sell you the benefits of AI or to dissuade you from using the technology. Someone in your organisation is going to be seduced by some iteration of AI and you’ve probably got a senior manager bug-eyed with excitement about the efficiencies allegedly offered by ChatGPT: this course is designed to give you the confidence to weigh up the GDPR implications of using AI and other associated machine-based processing. AI and automated processing are not the same thing, but the problems they represent are closely related, so we’ll be looking at both.

The robots are coming: better get ready.
