Due to unforeseen circumstances, the lunch event with Jeff Ward JD'09, LLM'09 scheduled for Thursday, December 12, has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your interest. We do plan on holding this event in early 2020, so please keep an eye out for a new invitation.

Long confined to backrooms with trained operators, robotic tools are moving out into the world, rubbing elbows with all of us, and are increasingly guided by advanced artificial intelligence. This raises a range of issues: What rules will guide this new kind of human-robotic interaction? How should the law address advanced machines that cause harm? And how can we ensure that we get maximum social benefits from these new possibilities?

Co-sponsored by Duke Law.

Registration fee includes lunch selection from pre-fixe menu, non-alcoholic beverages and complimentary valet parking.

Current Duke students and recent Duke alumni (10 years out) - $15 per person
General admission - $20 per person
