Artificial Intelligence: IP Policy Considerations Free webcast and public meeting, Dec. 5, 2018

Artificial intelligence (AI) is expected to produce a new wave of innovation and creativity, while presenting unique challenges in the area of intellectual property.
On Wednesday, Dec. 5, in the Madison Auditorium of our Alexandria, Virginia headquarters, we will convene an all-day program titled, “Artificial Intelligence: Intellectual Property Policy Considerations.” This public program will feature six panels composed of leading thinkers, policy makers, academics, and practitioners who will examine the growing capabilities of AI, its potential economic impacts, and implications for IP policy and law. The program will be webcast.
Bruce Boyden from Marquette University Law School, Jule Sigall from Microsoft, Joe Gratz from Durie Tangri, and Mary Rasenberger from The Authors’ Guild will discuss the copyright implications when AI is used to create new works or when copyrighted works are used to “train” AI systems.
An exhibit hall featuring booths from a number of companies and institutions showcasing their AI technologies will run concurrently with the program.
Registration is now open. To register or learn more, visit the event page on the USPTO website. You can also follow the event on Facebook and Twitter.
