10h 00 -  Teabreak

10h30 - 12h00

PANEL 1

Smart Regulation for a Smart Nation

This panel will feature a range of perspectives on, and approaches to, the regulation of emerging technologies and technological innovation. What types of mindsets and actions do governments and policy-makers need to adopt in order to create spaces for experimentation while protecting against exploitation? What are the thoughts of the technology creators on regulations and what are their experiences on such regulations in different jurisdictions?

These questions will be critically discussed by panellists from the public and private sector, with reference to case studies from a range of industries and jurisdictions. Traditional regulatory mechanisms such as individual and class licenses will be examined for their relevance and limitations. The Singapore Fintech experience will guide discussion about the desirability and challenges of regulatory sandboxes. Forms of ex ante regulatory clearance and industry codes of conduct and best practices will also be explored as more agile and community-driven alternatives to hard regulation. The session will conclude with a distillation of key characteristics and considerations of a smart approach to regulation in a digital age.

Panel 2

Regulating Intelligent Systems

What is artificial intelligence (AI) and to what extent does the deployment of the technology challenge existing legal and regulatory frameworks? This panel grapples with the tricky issue of whether new forms of laws and regulations are required for the regulation of technologies which have degrees of autonomous function such as driverless cars, technology-assisted document review, recidivism profiling systems, sentencing and case outcome prediction systems, chat-bot customer service, robot care-givers and other services and products which rely on autonomous decision-making made possible by cognitive computing. Is the regulation of AI desired or even possible, and should regulation be outcomes-focused and technology neutral, addressing the effects of the technology rather than the AI itself?

Might it be possible to conceive an approach to AI regulation that is analogous to Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics and what would the contents of such universal principles look like? In all of this, what are the ethical considerations which would guide the actions of the human individuals creating and using such intelligent systems? This session will attempt to appreciate the challenges of responding to these questions from both the maker and the regulator perspectives.

Panel 3

The Power and Pitfalls of Smart Contracts

 

Why are smart contracts taking the world by storm? When does a contract become "smart" and what makes for a "smart contract"? How are regulators keeping up with and how should they regulate smart contracts, if at all? Is the law adequately developed to address the challenges posed by smart contracts and serve their growing needs? With blockchain hitting the mainstream, and unleashing a seemingly limitless potential for smart contracts and their wide-ranging application across myriad industries, a closer study of what all this means for businesses , regulators, judges and lawyers, is timely. The revolution cuts across technology to the handling of contractual rights and obligations, contractual disputes, cross-border contract negotiation and conclusion, and how contract value is defined in non-fiat financial terms. this panel takes a deconstructed look at what has happened in recent times in this space, and a conspectus of what lies ahead.
