S1, E03 - Peter Fernando on the Legal Issues with Generative AI

In this episode we are joined by tech wizard Peter Fernando from Duncan Cotterill's partnership, who specialises in Technology, Media and Telecommunications (or TMT) under the Corporate Commercial umbrella.

Generative Artificial Intelligence is a hot topic with the introduction of more tools this year in 2023 than ever before. But the written law surrounding AI hasn't changed since the Privacy Act was passed in 1993 or in more recent versions (2020) - only the subject matter is changing.

Peter discusses the three biggest legal risks he sees in the everyday use of these tools, how his background sparked his interest in the field and his love of Formula One, before it was made mainstream by Netflix's popular Drive to Survive series.
