For our November 5th seminar, Technology Trends in the Law: What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger, Andrew Arruda (CEO, Automate Medical), Adrian Camara (CEO, Athennian), and Claudiu Popa (CEO, Informatica), join us to share their thoughts and expertise on cybersecurity, privacy and technology trends in the law. Breakouts for smaller group discussion with the presenters follow their sessions.
If we thought technology trends in the law were rapidly accelerating before the current COVID reality emerged, its speed has only increased since. Maybe our ability to adapt as quickly as we did, proved we can adopt many technologies we thought weren’t possible. Until this point the phrase, “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” may have been more of a question than an affirmation of resilience for many of us. Maybe for some of us, it still is. If you have questions, then Andrew, Adrian and Claudiu are some the best minds we know to answer them.
Andrew Arruda, a U of S grad, is the CEO of Automate Medical, CEO and co-founder of Ross Intelligence, a TED talk speaker and member of the Forbes 30 under 30 list of the world’s best young innovators. A visionary leader and communicator, he specializes in driving revolutionary change through a reimagining of technological and cultural processes. Working in Toronto, the center of the modern artificial intelligence revolution, Arruda foresaw early the impact that this new wave of technology would have on the workplace, the home, and society at large. Arruda left his office job, co-founded his first startup, and never looked back. An avid urban nomad, Andrew splits his time between Toronto and San Francisco.
Adrian Camara is the CEO of Athennian, which provides digital legal entity management. A Toronto/Calgary-based entrepreneur and lawyer, he was educated at Glendon College (BA, History), and the University of Western Ontario (JD, Law). Adrian worked at McCarthy Tétrault LLP prior to founding Athennian with a team of artificial intelligence engineers in 2016. He is a contributor to various publications and a frequent speaker on panels discussing the intersection of law and technology.
Claudiu Popa has dedicated his life to enriching the world through better security. As the CEO of Informatica Corporation and the President of Datarisk Canada, he has enriched organizations’ privacy and security, and as the co-founder and chairman of Knowledgeflow Cybersecurity Foundation, he educates children and other vulnerable individuals about online safety. Claudiu graduated from York University in Toronto, and was previously the Managing Director of the Canadian Cybercrime Information Centre at Seneca College where he led efforts to collect and analyze financial cybercrime information for public awareness and education.
We’ve come through a lot the past few years, and there’s more to come. We’ve stretched father than we thought we could back in 2020. Maybe it’s time to take another look at what future trends may offer, and what their impacts will be. While we’re at it, let’s see what we’ve learned from our collective COVID experience with our last session: Lessons Learned from COVID: What We Keep, What We Don’t.
