Summary of WIPO Conversation on IP and AI Sessions
On 8 January 2021, World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) published a Summary of Second and Third Sessions of its Conversation Intellectual Property and Artificial Intelligence.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has an ever growing effect on all aspects of our lives, and intellectual property is no exception. The issue of AI’s significance for IP has been increasingly discussed at WIPO as well, with WIPO already organising three Sessions of Conversation on IP and AI over the past two years. Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič attended all three of the Sessions on behalf of Communia:
- the first Session took place in September 2019,
- the second Session was organised in July 2020,
- the third Session took place in November 2020.
Last week, on 8 January 2021, WIPO finally published the Summary of the second and third Sessions of the Conversation, which mainly revolved around the discussion on the Revised Issues Paper on IP and AI.
