    On May 6, 2010, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 9% in mere minutes - the biggest intraday drop in the Index's history. This "Flash Crash", opened the eyes of regulators to the reality that they had little insight into who was doing what in the trading markets. In fact, it took four and a half months for the regulators to publish a report as to why the crash occurred. Realizing its inability to provide answers, the SEC proposed the Consolidated Audit Trail (CAT) soon after the crash. After seven years in development and implementation, the exchanges are on the verge of starting to report information to the system that has been developed. Join us as Robert Walley from Deloitte and Tyler Gellasch from Healthy Markets, discuss the CAT's development and ongoing controversies. Lunch will be provided.

  • May 4 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.
