Sensei’s Sharon Nelson recently hosted Legal Talk Network’s On The Road podcast “ABA Techshow 2021: Creating an Ethical AI Playbook” with guests Gen. Patrick Huston and attorney Natalie Pierce.
A U.S. Army general and law firm partner offer their global business and national security perspectives on using AI legally and ethically.
Because artificial intelligence is continuously evolving, so should the teams tasked with overseeing and leveraging its use.
Gen. Patrick Huston and Gunderson Dettmer Partner Natalie Pierce share similar approaches to building teams that monitor and leverage AI. Both follow BigTech’s model, which creates multidisciplinary teams across organizations.
No matter the organization, Pierce says lawyers need to be involved early on in the team-building process to assess legal issues and risk.
Gen. Huston details his “human-machine teaming” approach and notes the two things lawyers need to know about AI.
And while both agree that the multidisciplinary AI teams need to evolve with the technology, they are at odds with the optimistic/pessimistic view of AI.
Listen to find out which guest thinks more like the AI optimist Bill Gates or more like the AI wary Elon Musk.
The episode follows the ABA Techshow 2021 panel, “Ethical AI: Playbook for a Rapidly Changing World.”
From his post at the Pentagon, Gen. Patrick Huston focuses on the legal and ethical development and use of artificial intelligence, autonomous weapons and cybersecurity.
As a Gunderson Dettmer partner, Natalie Pierce counsels companies on workplace issues related to robotics, biometrics, telepresence, and artificial intelligence.
