Navigating the opportunities and legal risks: exploring AI's impact on your businesses

Artificial Intelligence (AI) provides a whole range of new opportunities but also includes new and unique risks for companies, governments and individuals within society. These opportunities and legal risks involve ethical, legal and regulatory challenges.

At CMS we are keen to share our thoughts about AI and to add to the wider AI debate. CMS has a long history of advising companies large and small to leverage the benefits of new technology including AI developments whilst limiting the possible legal risks.
