Over the past three years questions of AI-as-inventor has impacted Patent and Copyright law. On Friday 24 February we are hosting a lunch followed by discussion to explore this subject.
Chris Mammen, Partner, Womble Bond Dickinson (US) LLP, will be joining us to discuss his experience on AI Algorithms becoming classed as Authors and Artists under Copyright Law. WBD's IP and Data team will then be looking at Patent Law related to this field.
The scope of the debate is wide-ranging, it includes considerations of the laws as part of economic policy, individual economic incentives, the future and pace of innovation, as well as more fundamental questions about the extent to which copyright law should be aimed at protecting human creativity.
