FPF – Israel Conference at Cyber Week 2024 – AI Regulation & Data Protection

26/06/2024 15:00 — 18:00

Event Recap: 

On June 26, 2024, FPF – Israel held a Cyber Week Conference on:

From AI Regulation Around the Globe to Data Protection in Time of Conflict 


Once futuristic in nature, artificial intelligence has swept into the mainstream over the past 18 months with generative AI capturing the imagination of coders, business leaders and artists alike. Overnight, governments and businesses have begun to deploy AI for a vast array of use cases. In the first part of this session, academics, government officials and industry voices discuss the emerging legal and regulatory framework for AI in the European Union, United States, China and Israel. In the second part, the debate will focus on the difficult policy tradeoffs for privacy in times of war. Unlike any past conflict, October 7 and the war in Gaza have featured use of sophisticated technological tools and AI for purposes ranging from identification of casualties and hostages to assisting air and ground forces in military operations. How can we use technology responsibly even in a time when national interests overshadow individual rights?
