On October 17-19, Hogan Lovells will sponsor the ChIPs Women in Tech, Law & Policy Global Summit 2017 in Washington, D.C. Led by Celine Crowson, our IP team won a slot to host a session titled “Technological Innovations Rapidly Developing in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence – Is the Legal and Policy Landscape Keeping Up?” This panel features Stephanie Burns, Assistant GC for worldwide operations at Amazon and head of the robotics division, and Carol Carroll, Deputy Director of NASA Ames Research Center.
In addition to our participation during the Global Summit, we have also been invited to attend and participate in the Next Gen Summit, which supports and promotes the advancement, development and retention of young women where technology, law and policy converge. We are sending a team of junior IP lawyers to compete in the Next Generation Mock Pitch Exercise. The team is led by mentor, Meryl Bernstein, and includes Andrea Gregory, Polly Sims, and Helen Trac.
We are looking forward to another productive and impactful ChIPs Summit. ChIPs was founded in 2005 by Noreen Krall (Vice President, Chief Litigation Counsel, Apple), Hon. Michelle K. Lee (former Head of Patents & Patent Strategy, Google), and Emily Ward (Chief Executive Officer, Calla Nava; former Vice President, Chief Technology Counsel, PayPal). The nonprofit advances and connects women in technology, law, and policy, and has become the premier organization for women in technology law.
