Forget Me Not: Business Challenges Over Rights to Erasure & Threats to AI


1 CPE Credit Developments in Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have brought about unprecedented insight and value to the modern enterprise. At the same time, the right to be forgotten is ensconced in the current and upcoming privacy regulations such as the GDPR and CCPA. In this webinar, experts will discuss the connection between the deletion requirement and data privacy limits on data retention. What does the law intend to say with regard to data deletion? What are the consequences of non-compliance? Would full compliance with this requirement jeopardize AI/ML initiatives? Can compliance even be achieved considering the nature of these systems? How can effective information governance be used as enabler, rather than a roadblock, to successful implementation of AI/ML. 

Attendees will learn:
  1. The legal reasoning and background behind the right to be forgotten and its application to AI
  2. Whether the right to be forgotten is practicable or beneficial in the AI/ML context.
  3. Technical issues that can arise when attempting compliance with data deletion requirements.
  4. Potential solutions to the seemingly contrasting goals of the right to be forgotten and the objectives of AI.
