Podcast: Who owns the rights to a robot’s art?

Images generated by AI with the following prompt: "Architecture is the art of feeling alone"

Managing IP speaks to AI experts who question the legal and philosophical ramifications of what happens when AI gets creative

Reporter Charlotte Kilpatrick chats with three guests – Ulrike Till, director of the AI division at WIPO; Simon Colton, professor of computational creativity at Queen Mary University of London and Monash University; and Matt Hervey, AI expert and partner at Gowling WLG – about the ownership rights of creative AI.

In this podcast, guests discuss issues such as ‘how an artist is defined by law’; ‘who owns the IP rights to AI-generated art’, and ‘what is the point of a robot writing poetry?’. 

Listen to the end for the answers to these questions and many others. 

Enjoy.
