9th Session of the WIPO Conversation on IP & Frontier Technologies: Training the Machines – Bytes, Rights and the Copyright Conundrum

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) will hold the Ninth Session of the WIPO Conversation on Intellectual Property and Frontier Technologies (formerly WIPO Conversation on IP and AI) on 13 and 14 March 2024.

The theme of the ninth session is “Training the Machines—Bytes, Rights and the Copyright Conundrum”, which aims to bring together stakeholders to discuss the multifaceted relationship between IP and training data. The event will foster a holistic understanding of the impact of training data on the IP landscape by evaluating current practices, proposing practical solutions, and envisioning future direction.

The agenda comprises the following topics:
  • The current IP state of play: Training data containing copyright-protected works.
  • Does litigation really solve everything? A litigation tracker.
  • Can regulation keep up? Navigating the evolving regulatory landscape.
  • Can contractual frameworks mitigate the IP risk until regulation catches up?
  • Shaping a possible way forward: New approaches for the new AI age.
  • Presentation: Generative AI, training data and innovation – how large language models are acceleration scientific break throughs.
The list of speakers is available here. The event will be held in a hybrid format. Registration was open for WIPO members & Observers (onsite) and a wider audience (virtual). If you haven’t registered, the live webcast of the session will be available here.
