Artificial intelligence and intellectual property laws prospects and challenges (Paperback)
Artificial intelligence is the most revolutionary and disruptive technology of the mid
twenty-first century, not only because of its capabilities to learn from experience and
perform autonomously from humans. This is due to its capabilities to learn as a matter
of fact and perform independently from living person. Although the notion of Artificial
Intelligence (hereinafter referred as AI) is not new and has been present for over sixty
years but its pervasive effect is a relatively recent occurrence.
From game-playing cars to self-driving cars, right from automated suggestions on
internet platforms to computer-aided diagnostics and from human face recognition to
artificial face generation, everywhere we see the revolutionary potential of AI in our
daily lives. It is already being used in various fields including the Intellectual Property
(hereinafter referred as IP), legal sector; air traffic control systems, healthcare and
Internet of Things (hereinafter referred as IoT) including all aspects of other intelligent
systems, these are just a few examples. In fact, for the maintenance and operation of
our physical and digital infrastructure including the area of IP, we are becoming more
and more reliant on AI-based technologies. Owing to autonomous features and ability
to learn without assistance of human, the existing sectors of IP are facing a range of
difficulties, particularly in the realm of copyright.
The AI and IP has become most of the burning issues of 21st century in context of
above aspects. This is a debatable issue because of its breadth and usefulness in variety
of fields is being introduced technically in various fields aiming to perform any work in
a better way by replacing human being or reducing human effort.
