    Bank Directors Institute 8:00 AMLaw School 3041

    Banking organizations operate in a constantly evolving competitive landscape. Changes to regulation, cyber threats, emerging financial technology, and rising interest rates all present challenges, as well as opportunities, for regional and large community banks. In addition, lapses in corporate governance at large banks continue to erode consumers' trust in legacy financial institutions and harm franchise value. Guiding a regional or large community bank through such turbulence can feel like a daunting task for directors and senior executives. By hearing from renowned experts on critical banking topics, this program will equip attendees with the knowledge and perspective necessary to address the most pressing issues facing regional and community banks today. This program is ideal for Chairmen, Presidents/CEOs, Directors, Senior Officers, Advisors, Counsel, Consultants, and Corporate Secretaries. The program is hosted by the Global Financial Markets Center at Duke Law in collaboration with the American Association of Bank Directors.

    AI in the Administrative State: Applicaitons, Innovations, Transparency, Adaptivity 8:00 AMLaw School 4000

    Machine learning algorithms deliver remarkable forecasting power through their ability to learn and adapt. Artificial intelligence (AI) optimizes a variety of private sector functions, including production processes, supply chain management, and marketing. Apart from national security and law enforcement, productive uses of AI in the public sector receive less attention, despite a need to efficiently process ever-increasing amounts of data and quickly adapt to new information. Though AI may warrant regulation to prevent risk, harnessing AI to improve regulation should also be considered. This conference will gather AI researchers & developers, legal experts, business leaders, and government administrators to explore promising governmental uses of AI and the challenges posed in diverse areas such as science, technology, and IP. Sponsored by The Center for Innovation Policy, the Center on Law & Technology, and the Rethinking Regulation Program at the Kenan Institute of Ethics.
