Descripción
Introduction to the Congress
The rise of AI and its impact in the world economy (Industry 4.0, cloud/fog/edge computing, personal and non-personal data) is changing our landscape very rapidly. And, as in many other situations, the legal framework is not prepared for this change. This is especially concerning in the Intellectual Property field, as this new economy should be strongly supported by a clear set of rules, giving certainty to the stakeholders and fostering innovation.

In this two-day congress, we will analyze the key issues for IP in that new AI scenario.

Representatives from IP international organizations, academia, law practice, and industry will have a chance to share with the audience their different points of view about problems and solutions.

A repository of documents, studies, information and academic papers will be created for the participants, in order to allow them to continue with the study of the different issues that will be discussed in the Congress.

In order to foster discussion and networking, the number of attendants is limited.
