Although AI has been around for decades, recent advances, including the development of generative AI tools, mean that AI-related stories are hitting the headlines on an almost-daily basis. This includes the copyright infringement proceedings brought by a group of American novelists against OpenAI in relation to use of their novels as training data, the ban by Samsung on using generative AI tools on its internal networks and company-owned devices, and the Hollywood writers’ strike over the use of AI in the film industry.
More than half of organisations (52%) recently polled by Gartner reported that risk factors are a critical consideration when evaluating new AI use cases. So before spending time and money on the development of software by using AI, it is important for a company to understand the potential risks of doing so and how to mitigate such risks. Companies will need to rethink how development gets done, with the focus needing to be on evolving operations and training people as much as on technology. In addition, if looking to be acquired later down the line, that company will need to be ready to answer questions from prospective buyers.
Join this live Synopsys webinar, in which a panel of legal experts from CMS UK will focus on two hot topics in relation to AI: intellectual property and governance. They will cover:
• IP issues relating to the use of third party content to train AI tools
• questions around subsistence, authorship/inventorship and ownership of any IP
• the risk of the output infringing third party IP rights
• key IP considerations in the context of a potential acquisition
• how to manage development of software with the help of AI through effective governance
• how ISO Standards and standardisation can play a significant role in mitigating the risks associated with AI and establishing robust governance frameworks
