Protecting AI innovation, intellectual property
Regulating artificial intelligence (AI) presents one of the major challenges that governments, industries, and societies-at-large will have to tackle in both the present and the coming years. On one hand, AI will continue to affect every aspect of our lives in the future, which makes the regulation of AI most impactful on how we will interact with AI-powered applications. On the other hand, AI is advancing at unprecedented speed, which makes it challenging to foresee future directions and to align rather stable regulation with dynamic innovation in a reasonable way.
The I&C WG aims investigate the various AI regulations procedures deployed world-wide in the context of innovation. Its goal is to devise a collection of tools or practices to measure the impact of such procedures on innovation and commercialization. It will then gather, as best as possible, the value of the proposed frameworks, resources or indicators for the listed regulation procedures.
