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.
