Bracing for Impact: The Artificial Intelligence Challenge (A Roadmap for AI Governance in Canada)

Conference organized by IP Osgoode in collaboration with Aviv Gaon, Ian Stedman and the Zvi Meitar Institute for Legal Implications of Emerging Technologies at IDC Herzliya.

Future developments in the field of AI pose a challenge to intellectual property. The current legal regime does not offer protection for AI creations. Thus, registering AI patents and allocating copy- right protection for AI inventions and works is not yet possible. As a result, AI creations might fall under the public domain. We wish to address these concerns and to offer new insights and sugges- tions for the upcoming era.
