Seventh Hearing on Competition and Consumer Protection considers ethical, practical, and legal dimensions of artificial intelligence and machine learning.

On November 13 and 14, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) held the seventh hearing in its series of nine planned Hearings on Competition and Consumer Protection in the 21st Century.
