During the past year, interest in – and worries about – AI have surged. With an eye on issues unique to contracts for artificial intelligence (AI), we’ve incorporated generative and other AI into our tech contract trainings – offering some new classes, and enhancing old favorites. We will cover AI (among plenty of other tech contracting topics) in our two fall Tech Contracts Master Class series, webinars, and a new in-house class. And, David Tollen provides complimentary content about AI contracts, including a LinkedIn Live conversation coming up on August 17, a recent podcast interview, and articles.
We hope you will join us.
