    The Future of Law Conference: The Internet of Things, Smart Contracts and Intelligent Machines

        

    The Centre for Cross-Border Commercial Law in Asia (CEBCLA), School of Law, Singapore Management University, is proud to announce the Future of Law Conference: The Internet of Things, Smart Contracts and Intelligent Machines, to take place on 26 – 27 October 2017 in Singapore. 

    The Future of Law Conference brings together the leading thinkers in academia and practice in the field of information technology law to discuss the legal and regulatory implications of recent technological developments. Over a period of 2 days, the Conference proceedings will focus on the Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain technologies, machine learning and AI. To what extent, if any, does the practical deployment of these technologies challenge the existing legal and regulatory framework? Will machine learning annihilate the legal profession? Will the Internet of Things blur the division between home and retail environment? Is technological progress synonymous with the end of privacy? Are new forms of consumer protection required? Are there reasons to be concerned and plan for immediate legal responses or is it more advisable to adopt a sit-and-wait approach? Laws and regulations can, after all, both enable and inhibit innovation. The opening keynote will be delivered by Professor Ian Kerr (Ottawa), who will speak on the legal implications of AI. The closing keynote will be delivered by Professor Roger Brownsword (KCL), who will address problems of machine learning.
