Artificial Intelligence and Intellectual Property

Advanced training on Artificial Intelligence and Intellectual Property (3rd ed.) – ONLINE: October 1-2-3, 2020

Registrations are still open for the 3rd edition of the Advanced Training Program on “Artificial Intelligence and Intellectual Property” that will be conducted entirely online.

This new training follows the very successful editions of past years, gathering a high number of professionals coming from almost all the European countries, and as far as Brazil, Canada, United States, China, India, Malaysia and Japan, and including senior officials from renowned institutions.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robots have been the subject of science fiction for some time. That fictional future is now a present reality. The regulation of AI’s activities is set to become a primary policy issue. In particular, AI’s disruptive effects on traditional business models will force a re-consideration of the Intellectual Property (IP) framework. Today, AI and algorithms write news and novels, generate artworks, write and perform music. Automated intelligence can drive innovation processes on its own initiative. AI challenges the most traditional IP legal notions, such as “copying”, “originality”, “creator”, “author”, or “inventiveness”. Can a robot be an author? Can a robot be an inventor? Can a robot co-author a work with human intelligence? Who owns AI generated works or inventions? Should AI’s inventions be considered prior art? Who owns the dataset from which an artificial intelligence must learn? Who should be liable for creativity and innovation generated by AI, if they impinge upon others’ rights or other legal provisions? This training program will explore these thorny questions by dissecting legal, policy and ethical issues concerning AI impact on creativity and innovation. This training program should be of interest to creative economies and high-tech professionals and entrepreneurs, attorneys, policy makers, judges, and students.

Registrations are open until late-September! Download the detailed program here.
