Virtually all industries are being reshaped with the use of Artificial Intelligence and advanced machine-learning. Everything from healthtech to self-driving vehicles, to education and smart homes, drones and space, social media, and beyond is being affected. These new technologies present a variety of commercial opportunities and the potential to change our daily lives. At the same time, new AI innovations bring many legal, policy, commercial, and strategic challenges that need to be considered thoughtfully across jurisdictions. In some instances, existing frameworks can be applied or adapted. For others, new paradigms and robust safeguards may be needed. And as machine-learning technologies continue to evolve, organizations will need dynamic, sophisticated compliance approaches.
If an AI system comes up with a technical solution that happens to infringe on third parties’ patent rights, or develops art or music that has too-uncanny similarities to known, existing works, who is the infringer?
In this guide, we highlight several of the key challenges and commercial opportunities for AI and advanced machine-learning. A specific chapter is dedicated to Intellectual Property issues such as:
- Ownership of patents, copyright and trade secrets
- Ownership of data
- Infringement challenges
