 Legal Issues Forum Agenda

ANSI Legal Issues Forum Overview

This year’s ANSI Legal Issues Forum focuses on the legal and ethical issues that arise when artificial intelligence (AI) – a transformative technology currently at the fore of innovative initiatives across nearly every sector of industry and society – is deployed to meet business/organizational goals.

Our panelists will kick off the event with a broad philosophical look at the ethical considerations and societal issues that are emerging as AI permeates nearly everything we do. Then, bringing it to a more application-based focus, they will share insights on real-world legal and ethical issues they’ve encountered when integrating AI into their organizational practices – or when interacting with AI technologies implemented externally.

Attendees will be encouraged to share their own experiences and insights on any relevant standards, conformity assessment, and other best practices they can add to the discussions. While the Legal Issues Forum is traditionally geared toward an audience of standards organizations’ general counsel and other legal interests, this year’s topic is intended to draw a broad group of standards professionals, corporate leaders, and any other stakeholders interested in the issues that may arise as AI becomes ubiquitous in business practices and society as a whole.


ANSI members and interested stakeholders including those from government, industry, business, consumer groups, and academia were encouraged to attend and share their perspectives, insights, and expertise.
