Nota Bene Episode 141: Artificial Intelligence Technologies: Past, Present, and Forward with Siraj Husain [PODCAST]

Artificial intelligence is growing rapidly and exponentially. As technology advances, there are many new concerns legally, ethically and socially. Many wonder how patent offices will handle new AI generating inventions, or even how AI lethal weapons will be regulated. As countries are trying to catch up legally to the latest AI technology, the European Union is taking the lead with a new risk-based approach to regulating AI technology. Joining me is Siraj Husain, who gives great perspective into the world of artificial intelligence with his expert insight.

Siraj Husain is a partner in the Intellectual Property Group of Sheppard Mullin’s Palo Alto office.  He graduated from University of California Riverside with an undergraduate degree in computer science. He obtained his law degree from Loyola Law School, where he wrote for their law review. Siraj advises on IP strategies with a focus on artificial intelligence. He has specialized experience in many fields such as machine learning, deep learning, cloud computing technology, cryptography, and many computer hardware and software technologies. Siraj has also served as board member and pro bono committee co-chair for The South Asian Bar Association of Northern California. 

What We Discussed in This Episode:

  • What technological improvements have you seen in 2021 so far?

  • Can U.S. technology keep up with other countries?

  • What’s next for language models?

  • What’s new in the world of electroproperty?
