Webinar on Tech Law
The AIFC Academy of Law and Ai Mo Innovation Consultants are pleased to invite you to the webinar on “Legal progression of Technology Law in Central Asia” by Dr. Ammar Younas
Date and time: Friday, June 19 at 15.00 (NS time, GMT+6)
Overview: Technology is becoming a part of the fabric of modern Central Asian life and expected to deliver great benefits for Central Asian economy and society. The idea of safer, fairer, inclusive and informed technological autonomous systems cannot be realized without great care and combined effort which includes consideration of how technological development and usage should be governed, and what degree of legal and ethical oversight — by whom, and when — is needed. To date, self- and co-regulatory approaches informed by current laws and perspectives from companies, academia, and associated technical bodies have been largely unsuccessful at curbing inopportune technology use in Central Asia. Emerging technologies will continue to pose numerous transboundary policy problems in both the short- and the long-term. Autonomous and intelligent systems (A/IS) may spur development across economies and society through numerous applications, including in commerce, finance, labour, health care, agriculture, education, transportation, politics, privacy, public safety, national security, civil liberties, and human rights. To encourage the development of socially beneficial applications of A/IS, and to protect the public from adverse consequences of A/IS, intended or otherwise, effective policies and government regulations are needed in Central Asia. In this first webinar of the series of Technology Law webinars, Ammar Younas will shed a light on the legal progression of Technology Law in Central Asia and highlight the approaches which will continue to suffice, within the constraints provided by existing governance mechanisms (e.g., sector-specific regulatory bodies).
