Shearman & Sterling attorneys acted as contributors to the 2020 edition of Global Legal Insights: AI, Machine Learning & Big Data, a book published by Global Legal Group Ltd, London. The publication covers the latest trends, legal issues, board governance considerations and market practices in 29 global jurisdictions around artificial intelligence and its intersection with the laws of each country.
Serving as a framework for understanding AI from a technical perspective, while also touching upon the more immediate challenges that the technology poses to the legal practitioner, the guide is intended to contribute to the ongoing discussions of the role of AI in civil society and how the law will rise to the new challenges presented by it.
Partner Matt Berkowitz (Menlo Park-Litigation) was the lead editor and contributing author of the introductory chapter, “A Framework for Understanding Artificial Intelligence.”
Partners Alan Bickerstaff (Austin-Emerging Growth), Mallory Brennan (New York-Litigation) and Emma Maconick (Menlo Park-Intellectual Property Transactions) authored the “Considerations in Venture Capital and M&A Transactions in the AI Mobility Industry” chapter.
Partner David Higbee (Washington, D.C.-Antitrust) authored the U.S. chapter.
