Tuesday, December 5, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM —SES Lecture—AI, Ethics, and Intellectual Property Rights: A Guided Tour for Engineers
In hist talk, Dr Buschert will be looking specifically the question of whether an AI can be the kind of thing that can be (or should be) the bearer of Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs), such as copyrights or patents.
Our existing moral justifications for IPRs assume that the rights-holder is human. Can a non-human entity claim IPRs? Determining this requires requires clear about what we mean by these things and why, perhaps, we need to re-evaluate how IPRs are justified in the first place.
