Using Copyrighted Works to Train AI: Fair Use or Just Plain Unfair?

April 19th at 12:00pm - 1:30pm

The use of creative content like artwork, photographs, textual materials and musical recordings to train machine learning models, which in turn enable various artificial intelligence tools and services, raises complex and unique issues regarding the use of copyrighted materials and the scope of the fair use doctrine. Our panel of experts will examine this issue, including addressing recent copyright infringement suits asserting that using images to train AI services infringes copyright, discussing the potential defenses to these infringement actions, and evaluating the possibility of compromises and creative solutions to the issue that could short circuit full-blown litigation.


This event will be hybrid.
