FinTech and RegTech: Navigating Regulatory Complexity

November 15, 2018
Bloomberg L.P., Pier 3
The Embarcadero #101
San Francisco, CA
 
After the hype comes real change. It is clear that blockchain, AI, and other technologies are changing financial services and capital markets – and have huge potential for further disruption. However, government regulation, especially the highly complicated structures around banking and securities, may be impeding innovation. But some innovators are complying and thriving. How are they doing this? Featuring leading FinTech and RegTech innovators in the Bay Area, this half-day seminar will explore the interface between innovation and regulation, with a focus on what works in three areas: Moving Money, Raising Money, and Managing Money (and Risk). Co-organized with BloombergLaw.

The 23rd Annual BCLT & BTLJ Symposium
Governing Smart Machines: When Do We Need Humans in the Loop?

April 4-5, 2019
International House
UC Berkeley
2299 Piedmont Avenue
Berkeley, CA

Algorithms that analyze data, predict outcomes, suggest solutions, and make decisions are increasingly embedded into everyday life. How do we use machines well? When are they good enough at what they do that we can rely on them? How do we judge whether they are insufficient? How do traditional legal obligations of privacy, non-discrimination, due process, and reasonable care apply to their design and application? When should humans be in the loop? This symposium will convene scholars and practitioners from law, policy, ethics, computer science, medicine, and social science to consider how best to integrate machines into legal and social systems. It will consider what roles we will allow machines to play and how to govern them in support of public policy goals.
