LONDON – Stefan Hunt ( Partner, Head of KATS Europe) in collaboration with Dr Michael G. Jacobides (Professor, LBS)  is hosting a conference on Competition, Digital Regulation and Technology on April 18, 2023. The conference will bring together prominent figures from academia, government agencies and firms to discuss the importance of understanding technology in markets, especially given landmark advances such as generative AI.

The conference will be of particular interest to those involved in implementing the EU’s Digital Markets Act and the Digital Services Act and in time the UK’s Digital Markets Unit and Online Safety Bill, as well as those working on current and future digital competition cases. Understanding and applying technology plays a critical role in this work.  Discussions will focus on how technology needs now to be part of the picture – both for agencies and advisers.

The event will feature two panel discussions: the first is on ‘The future of algorithmic audit: what role will it play in competition and regulation in the age of Gen AI’; and the second is on ‘What issues arise from firms’ use of privacy enhancing technologies?

Speakers include:

  • Will Hayter (Head of Digital Markets Unit, CMA)
  • Claudia Berg (General Counsel, ICO)
  • Jessica Rusu (Chief Data, Information and Intelligence Officer, FCA)
  • Simon McDougall (ex Exec Director for Technology and Policy, ICO)
  • Michael G. Jacobides (Sir Donald Gordon Professor of Entrepreneurship & Innovation, LBS)
