Marijn Storm, associate in Morrison & Foerster’s Privacy + Data Security practice, appears on a panel focused on the interplay of the law and technological advancements. Marijn’s “LegalTech” panel is part of a program designed by the academic editors of the Oxford Business Law Blog to answer a range of pressing questions businesses should be considering. These include:

  • How should the application of new technologies, such as machine learning, be regulated to provide adequate space for innovation whilst still protecting consumers and investors in increasingly disintermediated markets?
  • How should data and privacy laws control the use and application of personal data in training autonomous systems?
  • How should liability be attributed or distributed where a (semi-) autonomous agent causes harm or loss?
  • How does legal education and training need to change to equip the lawyers of tomorrow with the skills needed to manage increasingly automated legal processes?
  • How should autonomous systems be designed so as to maximize their resilience to cyberattacks?
