New joint IPKat/BLACA event! The topic is ... Copyright and Artificial Intelligence

Pinocchio, arguably one of
the first cases of AI,
and his Kat Figaro
Artificial Intelligence and copyright: best friends, enemies, or ... frenemies?

Find out by attending this new joint IPKat/BLACA event, which will take place at London’s ReedSmith offices in the evening of Thursday, 10 January 2019.

The event, which will be led by Gaetano Dimita (Queen Mary University of London) and myself, will start with talks by:
  • Mark Grierson (UAL Creative Computing Institute) on the technical potential of AI creativity, and
  • David Price (Google) on the relationship between copyright and text and data mining.
The panel will discuss issues such as:
  • Whether and to what extent copyright law can accommodate AI-created works;
  • Whether the EU approach to text and data mining will support the development of and investments in AI in Europe;
  • Whether human authors will and/or should be replaced by machines;
  • The preferable regulatory approach to be pursued in Europe and in the UK, also post-Brexit.

  1. Hello, are there really no more places available? When I try to register, I see information that it has already been sold out.

  2. Hello, a waitlist should be available: have you checked?

  3. Hi there, I am also on a waiting list. I was wondering how long it takes approximately until we get notified of a confirmed place? Thanks!

  4. Hello BE, I am not handling the registrations, but I will ask and get back to you here. Thanks for your patience!


All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
