Artificial Intelligence and Content Creation
Regulating the Thinking Machines - is a governance framework for AI necessary? A debate built around the regulatory threats and opportunities posed by autonomously generated AI - creative machines that can make their own decisions.
AI raises major questions about copyright, other intellectual property rights and privacy. As publishers, we are users and aggregators of data, as well as creators.
Where do the boundaries lie regarding the use of AI and machine learning tools and techniques to build our own content?
As we move from the Age of Data towards the age of Machine Intelligence, we seem to fear the consequences of machines that can independently make decisions that affect our lives, while eagerly anticipating a world where machines can be creative, performing much of the humdrum work that we increasingly disdain.
- Can machines self-regulate? Or be regulated by other machines? - How do you define the point where the machine is working autonomously? - Who owns the creative output of the machine? - What should an effective AI governance framework look like? - Who is responsible when things go wrong?
Our debate will feature three experts: Professor Lilian Edwards, Newcastle University Bruce MacCormack, CBC Nigel Swycher, CEO Cipher
Asking the questions will be:
Liveryman Laurence Kaye
Liveryman David Worlock
