The Speaker is: Rubén Cano from Baker McKenzie, Madrid.
What is Ruben’s talk about:
Oftentimes, one of the purposes driving the conception of a legal system is to maintain a balance between innovation and social welfare, in a manner that technological development and economic growth serve societal purposes and needs. In order to achieve this balance, along with guidelines and recommendations, specific rights and limitations are set, which ultimately have an impact on which are the permitted acts and, as a consequence, the ability to carry out certain activities. The aim is to give a general overview of different legal regimes having an impact on the planning, development and deployment of Artificial Intelligence systems. This shall be done both from a theoretical and practical perspective in a way that potential legal risks or constraints may be identified and, eventually, mitigated. Once this has been done, a particular section will be devoted to analyze the main challenges for the Intellectual Property landscape revisiting its purpose, requirements for protection and enforcement.
