Open Call for comments on GPAI Data Governance Framework
The Global Partnership for AI Data Governance Working Group, co-chaired by dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič, has in August presented its first two projects. One of these two projects is the draft of the Data Governance Framework, currently still in its “beta” version. In order to improve the Framework, the Working Group calls for comments and suggestions.
The Data Governance Working Group is a part of the GPAI, which is on a mission to support and guide the responsible adoption of AI that is grounded in human rights, inclusion, diversity, innovation, economic growth and that will help to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. For this purpose, the Working kicked off two projects in the summer and has so far already prepared a “beta” version of the Data Governance Framework.
So far, the Framework covers four main areas:
– The role of data in the AI context;
– the importance of data governance matters;
– parameters of data governance;
– a roadmap for the Working Group’s future work.
Before the Framework is officially presented at December’s summit, the Working Group wishes to further improve it and therefore calls for constructive input from anyone that might be interested in contributing. Comments can be share either directly within the draft document or can be submitted via email to the International Centre of Expertise in Montréal for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence at email@example.com.
You can find more information about the open call here. You are welcome to submit your comments!
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.
