Leveraging AI & Experts to Navigate Compliance Risks & E-Discovery
14:00PM - 15:00PM
Big Data presents itself as a major challenge during a compliance audit or US litigation. Japanese companies need to have processes in place to navigate the risks involved in managing the large volumes of data when faced with potential allegations of bribery charges (FCPA) or the various other US laws that trigger the need to review sensitive internal communications. In this panel we will discuss how to leverage the most cutting edge technologies in artificial intelligence, data analytics and specialized experts. This panel is ideal for in-house corporate counsel and law firms who are interested in getting up to speed on the latest technologies and techniques
15:00PM - 15:15PM
Data Privacy: The Two Sides of Privacy from a Global Perspective
15:15PM - 16:15PM
Companies create, store, and archive terabytes of potentially sensitive data. Mountains of data in the form of emails, spread sheets, chats, engineering manuals, internal memos, financial reports, etc. Such data is subject to review and production in the United States during what is called E-Discovery. Another element of data privacy are the various rules and statutes that protect data from being exported without the appropriate consent from the subject, among many other requirements. These new data privacy rules, from California's Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 to Japan's APPI Amendment to Europe's GDPR, have serious consequences. We will discuss the challenges when navigating these new rules without getting into trouble. From the technologies involved in categorizing data to web hosting businesses, no matter how sophisticated your technology stack, there will be sizable volumes of critical corporate information that will need to be reviewed by error-prone human eyes. This panel will discuss best practices to ensure that information is not inadvertently produced or mistakenly categorized. In today's age of information overload from places such as Slack, Line, Jabber, WeChat, Whatsapp, Facebook, Bloomberg terminals, Wickr, audio, emoji, mobile text, etc. never have we been faced with such voluminous data.
16:15PM - 16:30PM
The Role of Translations: E-Discovery & Neural Networks
16:30PM - 17:30PM
Will robots replace translators? Translations play a key role in legal disputes, investigations and cross border business transactions. This panel will discuss how to appropriately leverage Japanese language translators and machine translation software in the legal context. Our expert panelists will offer their insight into common problems they have faced and how to protect against inaccuracies and inadvertent disclosures. This panel will discuss new developments in machine learning, neural networks, translation mistakes, and provide a prognosis of what the future holds. While the common understanding is that Japanese is a hard language to translate, our panel will offer varying perspectives from professional translators, machine learning experts and legal scholars.
17:30PM - 18:30PM
Guests will have the chance to network with our panelists, learn about their expertise and exchange business cards. Concluding our Tokyo Summit, we will invite those who have participated to join the Editorial Staff, the organizers, and our sponsors to an informal reception where cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be served.
