GPAI Data Governance Working Group’s first projects
Jenni Tenison (Open Data Institute), who, together with dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, co-chairs the Global Partnership for Artificial Intelligence (GPAI) Data Governance Working Group, has published on Organisation for economic cooperation and development (OECD) AI-dedicated webpage a blog, describing the GPAI formation, its goals and the first projects of its Data Governance Working Group. You are welcome to read the blog!
In her blog post, Jenni Tenison provides details on the first projects of the GPAI Working Group, the first being agreeing a data governance framework, setting a unified scope, structure and vocabulary for the Working Group’s future work. This will be produced by the Working Group itself.
The second project concerns an investigation on The Role of Data in AI, its purpose being to identify areas where access to more data can prove to be useful, as well as the areas where collection or access to data could lead to harm. In order to complete its second project, the Working Group is searching for experts from this field to assist in this project as partners. A public competitive tender with a proposal submission deadline on the 6 September 2020 is available here.
We will keep you updated on the GPAI Data Governance Working Group further activities.
The Internet Archive will file an appeal against an unfair decision that ignores the value of the libraries’ work
The Internet Archive is a non-profit organization that maintains the Open Library, a digital library index, and is dedicated to preserving knowledge. As many of the works in the Internet Archive are under copyright, the Archive uses a system of controlled digital lending based on digital rights management to prevent unauthorized downloading or copying of copyrighted books. In March 2020, due to the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Internet Archive established the National Emergency Library, eliminating the waiting lists used in the Open Library and expanding access to books for all readers. In June 2020, the Emergency National Library faced a lawsuit from four book publishers and was ultimately closed.
The 43rd session of the WIPO Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (hereinafter SCCR) made substantial progress on the issues advocated by the A2K Coalition (Access to Knowledge Coalition), which IPI is a member of. This year’s session was the most productive on the issues of exceptions and limitations. James Love (Knowledge Ecology International), a long-time observer at WIPO, described the outcome and the impact of the public interest community as the strongest since the conclusion of the Marrakech Treaty, which brought global copyright exceptions for the benefit of the blind and visually impaired.
Today, March 17, 2023, a symposium on law in the information society is taking place in the golden lecture hall of the Faculty of Law in Ljubljana. Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič will present copyright aspects of artificial intelligence at the symposium.
The third day of the 43rd session of the WIPO Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights is intended for discussion on the topic of exceptions and limitations to copyright, especially in connection with the right to research.
