    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: Applications, Innovations, Transparency, Adaptivity 8:00 AMLaw School 4000

    Artificial intelligence (AI) is being employed in the private sector to optimize production processes, pricing, and other business functions. But apart from national security and law enforcement, productive uses in the public sector have received less attention, despite recognition that the administrative state's foremost challenges include efficient processing of ever-increasing amounts of data, and adapting to new information over time. The Center for Innovation Policy at Duke Law, the Center on Law & Technology, Duke Science & Society, and the Rethinking Regulation Program at the Kenan Institute of Ethics are holding a joint conference to explore promising uses of AI and the challenges they pose in administering diverse governmental functions involving science, technology, health and intellectual property.
