Artificial intelligence (AI) poses many copyright questions:
Can there be copyright if there is no human authorship? Who owns the copyright when content is created using AI? Should there be exceptions to copyright to enable the machine learning technologies that underpin AI development, or should this be dealt with by licensing arrangements?
However these questions are all part of a broader global conversation regarding the ethical and human rights considerations of AI.
Decisions made by algorithms are only as good as the data on which they are made. AI can be all too human: quick to judge, capable of error, vulnerable to bias. It’s made by humans after all!
Decisions made by humans regarding the laws, standards, tools and ethics are critical to the future of how AI develops. Copyright policy decisions concerning AI may also have profound ethical and human rights implications.
Please join the Copyright Society of Australia for a conversation between Ellen Broad and Carolyn Hough about these issues and more.
