The two-part summit will consist of the following topics:
Artificial Intelligence and its Impact on the Legal Profession
Artificial Intelligence (“AI”) affects our daily lives in so many ways. AI is used to assist in predicting the weather. Robots are now used to do household chores. AI assists in reducing pollutants and ensuring safe air and water for us to enjoy. Robots have and will continue to play a vital role in space exploration – studying distant galaxies. The Department of Homeland Security uses robots to detect and remove explosive devices and sort through countless data to analyze potential terrorist threats. Robots are also used in hospitals and clinics to perform any number of surgical procedures. Many of the trades on Wall Street are performed automatically relying on AI algorithms to analyze market trends and buy or sell accordingly. What about the legal profession? What impact has AI had and will it continue to have on the practice of law and delivery of legal services? Join us for a renowned panel of experts as they discuss Artificial Intelligence and its impact on the legal profession and legal marketplace.

It’s Not About
“Revenge” or “Porn”:
The Problem of Intimate Partner Violence and Non-Consensual Sexual Image
Advances in technology and the ubiquity of the Internet and social media have given rise to a damaging new form of abuse, commonly, but mistakenly, referred to as “revenge porn.” The threat or actual dissemination of sexually explicit images of an intimate
partner without consent is a new tool for abusers to exert power and control over their victims, a hallmark of domestic violence. Abusers can obtain sexual images in many ways – with the victim’s consent within the context of a romantic relationship,
through coercion, unlawful surveillance, hacking, or by photo shopping fake images with the victim’s face. However obtained or manufactured, they allow an abusive person to wreak havoc on the victim’s life, by using threats of dissemination to force
the victim to do what the abuser wants or by sending the images to family, employers or “revenge porn” websites, causing intense public humiliation, trauma, degradation, danger, job loss, and isolation. Once these images go public, victims are forced
to navigate massive and complex hurdles as they attempt to remove the offending images from the public sphere.
Please join a panel of experts to learn about image exploitation as a form of domestic violence and what research indicates about its particular impact on domestic violence victims. Panelists will also discuss legal strategies for assisting victims
of this form of abuse, particularly given the limitations of New York’s current legislative scheme in place to address this problem.

Advances in technology and the ubiquity of the internet have given rise to a
particularly damaging form of cyber abuse, commonly known as “revenge porn.”
This involves the threat or actual dissemination of a victim’s graphic sexual
images without her consent. Sexual
images can be obtained in many ways – sometimes with the victim’s consent
within the context of a romantic relationship, other times by unlawful
surveillance or hacking, sometimes by photo shopping a fake sexual image with
the victim’s face. However the images are
obtained, they allow the abuser to wreak havoc on the victims life.
