FTC to Hold Virtual AI Summit on Jan 25th From Noon to 4:30 PM ET

Stations are rapidly confronting the benefits and potential liabilities of AI in the broadcasting business. Legislation is being introduced at both the federal and state level. In addition, the Federal Trade Commission is looking at potential AI regulations. This half-day virtual summit is focused on artificial intelligence and will be held on January 25, 2024, from 12:00 pm – 4:30 pm ET.

The Federal Trade Commission’s Office of Technology is hosting a virtual tech summit on January 25, 2024, that will bring together a diverse group of stakeholders to discuss key developments in the rapidly evolving field of artificial intelligence (AI), looking across the layers of technology related to AI. While not specifically focusing on broadcasting per se, this will provide a good background on the issue. 

The summit will bring together representatives from academia, industry, civil society organizations, and government to discuss the state of technology, emerging market trends, and real-world impacts of AI. The discussions will also explore how to cultivate a marketplace that allows both consumers and businesses, including startups and small businesses, to thrive.

FTC Chair Lina M. Khan and Commissioners Rebecca Kelly Slaughter and Alvaro Bedoya will provide remarks at the summit. The event will also feature three-panel discussions. These include discussions on the hardware and other key infrastructure that will be needed for AI development, issues related to the data and models used in AI, and AI-powered consumer applications.

The summit is open to the public. There is no need to register.
