ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE: PREPARING FOR ITS GROWING IMPACT ON GOVERNING AND POLICY W/ KAREN SILVERMAN, PARTNER, LATHAM & WATKINS
Karen Silverman is the President and founder of a new advisory group [in formation] that counsels boards, executives and legal departments on governance and oversight issues as their companies implement AI and other frontier technologies. These new technologies, including autonomous vehicles, blockchain, AR/VR, IoT/sensors and CRISPR, raise novel risk oversight and management issues, beyond data privacy. Karen brings over three decades of experience working with directors and senior executives on their most complex business issues and transactions, served in senior management at Latham & Watkins, LLP, a leading law firm known for its excellence and global reach, and led the firm’s partnership with the World Economic Forum and its work on a Board Toolkit on AI and other thought leadership projects. She is a frequent speaker on technology issues and how companies can render broad technology policy (and coming regulations) into workable processes that support their innovation and commercial objectives. Her experience in private practice and at the Department of Justice and SEC further informs her business-oriented approach to advising companies on strategic, high-stakes corporate moves, M&A, government investigations and crises management.
Karen lives and works in San Francisco and is active in a variety of organizations that support the development and rights of women and children, the abolition of human trafficking, and broader education for students and judges around the adoption and implications of AI on their everyday and professional lives.
