Systems Council Systemic Innovation Special Interest Group Webinar | Innovation, Artificial Intelligence, and Legal Liability by Dr John Kingston


Systemic Innovation Special Interest Group (under the Systems Council chapter of the IEEE UK Ireland) is delighted to announce another event in 2022.

Innovation comes with uncertainty and risk. When there are risks, there is always the potential for failure, which comes with liability and legal consequences. Understanding risks and potential ramifications is vital to ensure that innovation is not stifled through fear of negative consequences for innovators.

This program is dedicated to exploring various perspectives on innovation risks, their owners, liability and extent from a legal stand point.

This event should be of interest to active innovators particularly those pushing boundaries in new and exciting fields, leading business and industry leaders, researchers and academics who maybe interested to learn about the legal aspects of their innovative activities.
