November 2016: Innovation Conference

It is impossible to ignore the ever-increasing prominence of disruptive technology, with artificial intelligence the favourite topic of conversation (as indeed reflected in last year’s conference, with presentations from IBM Watson and ROSS Intelligence among others). While there is no shortage of lawyers willing to pour cold water on the idea of ‘robot lawyers’, it is worth remembering that the technology is only going to get better and more sophisticated from here, probably at a rapid rate. This conference looked to blend both the present and the future, looking at some of the exciting developments in legal businesses that are happening now, but with an eye to the bigger picture of regulatory and technological change that will surely sweep through the law in the years to come.

Rohit Talwar, CEO, Fast Future
