The United States is in the midst of a new artificial intelligence (AI) era, a period of rapid development and growth in machine learning enabled by advances in computing power and connectedness. New developments raise copyright questions related to how data is gathered and used, how new works are created, and the intersection between machine and human collaboration. The U.S. Copyright Office co-hosted a symposium with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in February 2020 to develop answers to these issues, gathering a wide range of creative, technological, and legal experts.
Representatives from the Copyright Office will explore the latest issues involving copyright law and AI, including computer-assisted creativity, training data selection, bias, deep-fakes, and enforcement. The webinar will also summarize some of the outcomes from the AI symposium earlier this year.
Speakers: Whitney Levandusky, Catherine Rowland, and John Wierzbicki
Moderator: Angus M. MacDonald
