The increased use of artificial intelligence and machine learning approaches in science and industry raises new questions for intellectual property law and policy. In late 2019, the United States Patent and Trademark Office asked the public for comment on several questions surrounding AI and IP, including:
- Is work produced by an AI algorithm protectable under US copyright law?
- Who can be considered the author of AI-generated work?
- Does the use of copyrighted data to train a machine learning model fall under fair use?
- How does AI impact trademark or trade secret law?
Join a panel of experts from computer science, law, and public policy for a discussion of these issues and other topics at the intersection of technology, innovation, and intellectual property law.
