Many companies take part in the global ‘race to AI’ by continuously broadening the role of AI in their product portfolio. However, the rules of the game appear to be changing. The increased visibility of the technology’s risks has led to calls for regulators to look beyond the benefits, and also secure appropriate legislation to ensure AI that is ‘trustworthy’– legal, ethical, and robust. During this session, we will discuss the main players, trends, and challenges in the ‘race’ to AI regulation and how companies can move forward with an advantage.

Mr. Howlett was very forthcoming, open to questions, and he really poured his expertise in the training, which made all the difference... I liked a lot the first day about design and development, of which I did not know anything.

Christian Micheletti, RA Manager, Nouvag AG

It was very good, I was impressed, I would have loved to do this course in person but this was a good alternative.
The speakers were very good, very knowledgeable but also good at teaching/ relating information. The presentations were easy to follow, it was useful to have the documents there to follow along as the speakers talked. All the content was relevant to the topic and occasional humus.

I enjoyed the course and would recommend Management Forum to my colleagues.

Zhané Healey, Senior Laboratory Technician, Medical Engineering Technologies

Yes, my expectations were met. I hoped to get an insight on the sustainability of medical device

Ifesinachi Onyekaba, Research and Development Specialist, MEDTRON AG

Very clear and straight to the point

Stefani Aleksandrova, Regulatory Affairs, Olympus

I would recommend it to anyone with no experience of design controlled medical device development. A good overview with a good amount of detail.

Hugh Clark, Mechanical Engineer, Cambridge Design Partnership

Good pace. Mixture of text and graphics... David did a good job and was engaging considering that the course was online, which is always difficult.

Danny Kendall, Senior Physicist, Elekta Ltd

just positive comments: very clear and professional

Marco Franza, Sales & Key Account Director, Plastiape SpA

Good course

Evie Eccles, Quality Assurance and Regulatory Compliance Manager, Blackford

The course covered a vast area, and it was helpful to follow new requirements/changes.

Jitendra Gupta, International Medical Manager, Novo Nordisk A/S

All round excellent score. David was very clear with his diction and could not be faulted. He clearly has vast knowledge and experience in this field.

Christopher Thorpe, Junior Engineer, Osler Diagnostics
