Experienced advisor with broad expertise in intellectual property and information technology will explain how the compliance industry is being reshaped with the help of AI at PICANTE TECH Conference Europe 2019.


Artificial Intelligence (AI) means different things to different people and it’s sometimes settling on a single definition to suit everyone is impossible. In part, individual views are shaped by where they sit on the spectrum of what it may bring, from technological utopia to dystopia.

When it comes to the compliance vertical, some companies are actively testing different AI systems for use in historic contracts, or in the automation of new contracts. Currently, we are at the tip of the iceberg in terms of proper utilization or realization of the benefits of AI in the compliance vertical.

The evolution of AI enables many repetitive tasks to get completed and will really replace a lot of the second-level activity that currently law companies outsource to outside law firms. By using AI, law companies are able to do this activity internally.

Already, artificial intelligence (AI) and automation are becoming the go-to options for addressing the troubles of modern-day AML and KYC, and regulators are encouraging the adoption of innovative solutions. The biggest draw is AI’s ability to interpret, synthesize and correlate vast amounts of data, a game-changing contribution to the ongoing battle against financial crime.

During PICANTE TECH Conference Europe (TCE2019), which will take place in Prague on the 3rd of September at Vienna House Andel’s Prague, you have the unique opportunity to hear more about how using AI is changing the compliance industry, and what are the laws around the use of AI, from Vojtech Chloupek (Partner at Bird & Bird).
