Many of us will by now have played around with Chat-GPT, Dall-E and other generative AI products. We will have seen how powerful and impressive these tools are. We have probably also wondered exactly where this is all heading, what it means for our business, and how quickly things willContinue Reading The Generation Game: Points to consider when leveraging generative AI in business
“Slow and steady wins the race.”
All of us will have heard a multitude of variations on Aesop’s fable of the tortoise and the hare. The overconfident hare is so sure he can win a race with the tortoise that he races off, and is then so confident of his…Continue Reading Hare-brained scheme: Why the AI tortoises will inevitably lose the race…
The technology sector faces a critical moment as economic signs continue to point to a possible downturn. Yet, despite this, our latest Technology Index findings show the industry has managed to remain optimistic thanks to forecasts of increased revenue and ESG opportunities.
As a firm, we launched this unique report…Continue Reading Tech Index 2022: Pathways to Growth in a Troubled World

Civil liability and Artificial Intelligence: why specific legislation is needed
According to a recent survey, civil…Continue Reading The AI Liability Directive: EU improves liability protections for those impacted by AI
Synthetic data is a subject (at least for the uninitiated) encircled in a layer of scepticism and uncertainty. While synthetic data has existed for some time, the manner in which it is being utilised has evolved substantially. As with all novel implementations of technology, there are always teething problems and…Continue Reading In defence of synthetic data: how synthetic data can be used as a privacy-enhancing technique during the early stages of an AI system’s lifecycle
Artificial intelligence (AI) is playing an increasingly relevant and important role in our lives. Be it through your personal devices, streaming platforms or the production of vaccines, our symbiotic relationship with AI is unquestionable. This rapid rise in the use of AI raises challenging questions for patent law:…Continue Reading Thaler Shut Down: High Court of Australia confirms AI incapable of being an “inventor”
Data is often the fuel that powers AI used by organisations. It tailors search parameters, spots behavioural trends, and predicts future possible outcomes (to highlight a just a few uses). In response, many of these organisations seek to accumulate and use as much data as possible, in order to make…Continue Reading Keeping an ‘AI’ on your data: UK data regulator recommends lawful methods of using personal information and artificial intelligence
The only example of an information processing system capable of human-level general intelligence that we have (at present) is the human brain itself.
This ‘wetware’ contains about 80 to 100 billion neurons, and about 100 trillion (or 1000 times as many) synapses. With each synapse being a ‘trainable’…Continue Reading Immeasurably better? Non-digital AI and the regulatory challenge
In January 2022, DLA Piper reported on an announcement of a new initiative, as part of the UK’s National AI Strategy, to shape the way organisations and regulators develop technical standards for artificial intelligence (“AI”). The initiative, the AI Standards Hub (“Hub”), was highlighted as…Continue Reading UK launches new AI Standards Hub for the development of AI best practices
