Artificial Intelligence: Creator or Tool of Creation?
You are invited to the discussion Artificial Intelligence: Creator or Tool of Creation?, which will take place as part of the exhibition Live, Laugh, Love, on February 8th, at 5 pm in the Kresija Gallery. Designer Emil Kozole and dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, LL.M., LL.M., will explain how they see the development of artificial intelligence in the future and how this development will or should be followed by legal regulation. Welcome!
Emil Kozole is a designer who researches socio-political topics such as digital identity, online surveillance and new technologies. At the event, he will present the mechanisms of creation that led to the creation of the work “Syndicate for the Rights of Artificial Intelligence”, in which he analyzes past achievements in the field of human rights and explores what it will look like when A.I. began by fighting for their own emancipatory rights.
Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, LLM., LL.M. will briefly present the main challenges that artificial intelligence poses to traditional concepts in copyright law: whether works independently generated by AI can be protected by copyright. Is it enough for protection that the result generated by a machine looks the same as a creation created by man? Does the AI even need a reward or incentive to create? Can AI be considered as an “author” who creates “original” works?
The event is an accompanying program of the exhibition Live, Laugh, Love, which is on view at the Kresija Gallery until 20 February.

On September 16, 2023, Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič participated in the event @Re:Source MAH – the 10th International Conference on Histories of Media Art, Science and Technology. The program was divided into various categories (“tracks”), specifically focusing on the documentation and preservation of media arts; climate change; pioneers of media arts; and the history of media arts in museums.
The U.S. Copyright Office has once again denied the registration of an artwork created by artificial intelligence. Artist Jason M. Allen was unsuccessful in his second attempt to register the artwork “Theatre D’opera Spatial” as a copyrighted work because it contains more than a de minimis amount of content generated by artificial intelligence (AI).
On Friday 23 June 2023, a webinar entitled “Copyright and Legal Basis for Generative Artificial Intelligence Training” was held as the inaugural event of an informal research network in the region in the field of copyright. Researchers from Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and North Macedonia participated in the event, which is part of the national Open Knowledge Day initiative and the national and regional coordination activities carried out by ODIPI under the auspices of Knowledge Rights 21.
