The role played by artificial intelligence (AI) in our everyday lives is growing; however, its impact is frequently overlooked. This is also true in the legal sector; particularly, in regards to the use of AI in IP and contract management, as well as the ways in which new AI technologies are currently protected and protectable by IP rights.

Please join our seminar on the current and future impact of AI on contracts and IP.

“AI is a new digital frontier that will have a profound impact on the world. It will have enormous technological, economic and social consequences, and is going to transform the way we produce and distribute goods and services, as well as the way we work and live.”
Francis Gurry, WIPO Director General

In the first part of our seminar, lawyer and technologist Maarten Truyens will share his predictions of the impact of AI on ‘smart contracts’. Maarten will also profile both existing and upcoming AI-based products; assessing how they work and what we can (and can not) expect from them. Finally, he will provide practical advice on how to identify valuable contracts and contracting solutions in the current AI hype.

In the second part of our seminar, IP specialists Véronique Pede and Frederik Jocqué will focus on how to obtain IP protection for new AI tools and AI creations. They will assess the current IP systems that exist to protect Apps, user interfaces and software, and set out likely future developments in this rapidly-evolving field. The presentation will also cover the new copyright rules recently adopted by the European Parliament.
