The rapid growth and adoption of AI technologies have tremendous promise to drive innovation and improve operational efficiency, particularly if the risks can be managed. There are many risks, including those related to the mass consumption of copyrighted works, which is at the heart of AI systems that rely on them. In many of these systems, copyrighted content is copied, stored, and can be reproduced, analyzed, and used to create summaries, classifications, and additional works.
This event will provide insight on how copyrighted materials are retained and reused in AI systems, including large language models. Our expert speakers will discuss the copyright implications, the legal risks, and the role of licensing as an integral part of a comprehensive AI governance, risk, and compliance program.
