The Future is [almost] Here: Electronic Wills in California

As everything moves to the digital world, states including California are grappling with the pace of change and the implications for testamentary acts.  David D. Little will give a history of recent court cases dealing with electronic wills, an overview of other state’s legislation, and a discussion of California’s proposed electronic will legislation.

I’m Sorry, Dave, I’m Afraid I Can’t Do That.

If you haven’t seen the movie “2001: A Space Odyssey,” you have missed one of the great forecasts of humankind.  Today, the moral of the film (that artificial intelligence may take over or surpass humans) is nearly here.  Please join us for a panel discussion with Jonathan Blattmachr and Jeff Glickman who will discuss the extraordinary advances in artificial intelligence, including artificial super intelligence (ASI) and how it is impacting financial and legal professions.  Also discussed will be how ASI is affecting estate planning and tax strategies.  This is a critically important topic of which professionals who want to stay in the game need to be aware.
