It will discuss the extent and scope of patent protection for AI inventions. Also, how can intellectual property law protect trained neural networks or data sets, if at all? What new licensing models, if any, are necessary for commercializing AI or robotics technologies or the data sets supporting them? This panel will also cover the intellectual property implications of AI‚Äźcreated paintings, images, and music, and what happens if an AI creates a new invention? Who, if anyone, owns those works or inventions?
