Who Owns The Copyright Of AI-generated Content?

#artificialintelligence

The time has come for lawmakers to settle this debate before it's too late. Some days ago, a court in Shenzhen, China ruled that a creative work produced by artificial intelligence (AI) enjoyed copyright protection. With an increase in use case of AI in content generation, be it an article or a painting, whether such work attracts the provisions of a country's copyright act needs to be addressed. In the China case, an online platform accused of reproducing an informative article created by an AI tool without permission was asked to pay a fine for financial losses and for infringing copyright. The question left on the table though, was -- what about the copyright of those content owners whose works were used by the AI tool to generate that info article in the first place?


Copyright, Trademark, and Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Back in August 2019, the USPTO published a notice requesting public input on the interplay between patent law and artificial intelligence (AI). In October, the USPTO expanded its notice to extend the inquiry to include copyright, trademark, and other IP rights. The PTO has now extended that deadline for comments until January 10, 2020. For example, should it be sufficient if a person (i) designed the AI algorithm or process that created the work; (ii) contributed to the design of the algorithm or process; (iii) chose data used by the algorithm for training or otherwise; (iv) caused the AI algorithm or process to be used to yield the work; or (v) engaged in some specific combination of the foregoing Start Printed Page 58142activities? Are there other contributions a person could make in a potentially copyrightable AI-generated work in order to be considered an "author"?

How AI is shaping the future of retail Google Cloud Blog

#artificialintelligence

Technology has played a key role in retail for decades, from early innovations like barcode scanning and digital point of sale devices, to the global frontier of modern logistics. Through it all, however, the fundamentals remain the same: retailers generate huge quantities of data, face unpredictable environments, and need to continually adapt to the ever-evolving needs of the customer. Throw in the chaos of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and you've got one of the most complex enterprise challenges in the world. It's also a challenge tailor-made for AI: a technology that thrives on big data, adapts to change fluidly, and can deliver personalized experiences at scale. With the holiday rush upon us, let's take a look at how two Cloud AI customers--3PM for online shoppers and Tulip for in-store--are helping make retail more efficient, more personal, and more trustworthy.


3 Tips for an Impactful Cover Letter Accenture

#artificialintelligence

When was the last time to you read a WhatsApp message that was longer than the screen space? Or spent an extra minute reading a LinkedIn post that was two paragraphs? We live in a world of soundbites, but details still matter--especially when it comes to your cover letter. The biggest challenge on a two-page resume is explaining your past work experience crisply and concisely. In fact, many companies use AI-based programs and algorithms to parse out the basic details of your resume.
