What is AI today, may not be so tomorrow

Creative Commons have set up four working groups on the Future of Open which have just reported. The working groups are

  • Artificial Intelligence and Open Content
  • Internet Platform Liability
  • Exception and Limitation to address Global Challenges
  • Beyond Copyright: the Ethics of Open Sharing

The Key Findings are being presented on 9 November at 1530 UTC and  copies of the Working Group reports can be found on the Creative Commons Medium channel.
