The AI and Data-Led Revolution of Copyright and Its Wider Implications

Global Digital Encounters

Recording

Objectives

Further to the COVID Crisis, Artificial Intelligence and Data are becoming central to the development of mankind, as they are interacting massively with numerous sectors of human activity and creativity. This is necessarily leading to a Revolution of Copyright, that would be connected to ethical, practical and economic considerations relating to AI input, AI output, data mining issues, etc. Mankind, and thus Legislators, are therefore facing unprecedented complex challenges. Which meanings might be expected from this evolution /revolution? Will the US and EU approach further evolve? Would there be space for diverse scenarios, such as further international harmonization? Speakers from Europe and North America will provide a worldwide picture of this pre-revolution legal environment under a deeply transformed post-crisis world and elaborate on possible future scenarios.
