Dr Daniela Simone joins WIPO Global Conversation on Intellectual Property & Artificial Intelligence
15 July 2020
Dr Daniela Simone joined a panel of experts presenting at the WIPO Conversation on Intellectual Property (IP) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) held as a series of virtual meetings on 7-9 July 2020.
Last week saw the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) organise its second ‘Conversation on Intellectual Property (IP) and Artificial Intelligence (AI)’. This focussed on key issues concerning the relationship between AI and IP identified in the first WIPO Conversation which took place last September. The subject matter of the Second Conversation was split into three sessions: ‘IP Protection for AI-Generated and AI-Assisted Works and Inventions’; ‘AI Inventions: Patentability, Disclosures and Guidelines’ and ‘Data: Copyright in Training Data and Further Rights in Data.’
Dr Daniela Simone contributed to Session 1 where other interventions were made predominantly on behalf of national IP offices, associations representing IP professionals or IP rights-holders, including AI-giants – IBM and Google. Her intervention related to copyright authorship and ownership (Issue 7, Question 6) in the context of AI-assisted works.
