In January 2019, the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) issued a study that surveyed the landscape of Artificial Intellegence (AI) innovation. The WIPO Technology Trends report offers evidence-based projections to inform global policymakers on the future of AI. Subsequently, in September 2019, WIPO held a Conversation on Intellectual Property and Artificial Intellegence bringing together member states and other stakeholders to discuss the impact of Al on IP policy, with a view to collectively formulating the questions that policymakers need to ask.
We are preparing a response to the World Intellectual Property Organisation consulation on Intellectual Property and Artificial Intellegence policy, which invites feedback on an issues paper designed to help define the most-pressing questions likely to face IP policy makers as AI increases in importance.
Our response brings together views from our Intellectual Property Law experts in the Law school, as well as other Brunel collegues to formulate a broader view as the impact is wider to include areas such as privacy, consumer and competition law. The response will be published on the WIPO website.
