POLICY • POLITICS • GOVERNANCE
Fintech, regtech and other start-ups and established corporates are employing 21stcentury technologies like artificial intelligence & machine learning, blockchain, cloud and data analytics to fuel business growth and competitiveness.
The emerging regulatory and ethics debates plus cybersecurity obligations will define the parameters for permissible use of these promising technologies.
Debate is emerging around the legal personality and responsibility for automated decision formats, whether algorithm, machine learning or artificial intelligence-based. Data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence are expanding the debate beyond the legalities into issues around ethics, trust and control. The acceleration of these technologies is generating opportunity and threat assessments by states, corporates, regulators and society.
Compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation is the tip of a large iceberg that will have significant impact for data-driven business models.
Data privacy debates in civil society and government are gaining traction. Recent revelations about inappropriate use of social media and data analytics that damage democratic process and other critical societal interests are driving calls for regulation and greater protections. Technologies such as blockchain have the potential to drive strong solutions to some of these challenges.
Stratosphere produces segment analysis and/or a bespoke dashboard of political and policy risks specific to the client.
The need for in-house government, public policy and regulatory affairs teams has never been greater than during the current period of technology, regulatory and political rapid fire changes. Optimal structure for these important operations has never been more critical.
Mergers have significant competitive effects on industries, competitors and consumers.
