Building on research conducted in the digital identity work at CIS, Amber Sinha will highlight the need for a three pronged responsive regulatory approach towards emergent technology such as AI/ML and identity solutions.

The keynote address will briefly present the three key elements of this approach— a rule of law framework, rights based tests, and risk based assessment, and highlight a few examples for its application.  The pandemic, and the responses to it have underscored for a dire need for these regulatory strategies.
