Artificial intelligence (AI) is an increasingly present force in everyday life and one that is currently attracting the attention of regulatory bodies around the world. The US Copyright Office, the Canadian Government and others have all launched consultations this year to examine the issues. In this panel discussion, we are joined by European experts to highlight some of the opportunities and risks associated with the incorporation of AI into creative industries, as well as consider implications for makers, users and the broader copyright system. This promises to be a timely and enlightening discussion.
