Technology is a young, dynamic and ever-changing field of law. Technology drives the future. We are constantly working on becoming part of this future.
Men in today’s world are involved up to their neck in technology. Technology is all around us. Just think about smart phones, sophisticated algorithms, robots, or artificial intelligence. From a legal point of view, we need to be very vigilant as technology is evolving faster than law, so there are often no black-and-white answers. We need to be flexible and creative in finding the tailor-made solutions for complex legal issues.
Due to the extreme technological advancements, companies are now capable to outsource a countless number of tasks and functions around the globe. Working out an outsourcing scheme requires careful planning process and review of complex contractual structures. Creating contractual structures in heavily regulated industries (such as financial or energy industry) presents a particular challenge, as additional sector-based requirements must be met, both by the legislator and the regulatory bodies.

- The EU Commission has drafted its White Paper on Artificial Intelligence (“AI White Paper”) to tackle a wide variety of legal issues in the context of artificial intelligence (“AI”).
- As AI slowly, but surely will surround us, it is worth keeping a close eye on legislative developments in this area. AI potentially could be a hotter legal topic than the GDPR.
