On March 3, 2021, Anna Gressel and Avi Gesser from our Data Strategy and Security Group had a very interesting conversation on AI regulation with Kaitlin Asrow, Fintech Policy Advisor for the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.

During the webcast, we discussed the FRB’s recent report, “The Role of Individuals in the Data Ecosystem,” as well as:

  • How consumer data is leveraged in AI to inform decision-making, automate activities, and develop financial products and services;
  • Current regulatory and enforcement priorities around AI and consumer privacy, and potential developments in 2021;
  • The implications of privacy enhancing technologies for data aggregation and AI development; and
  • How companies can mitigate risk through improved data and AI governance programs, risk assessments, and vendor management.
