Until recently, invention and creation were exclusively human activities. IP systems have been developed over the centuries to incentivize such human endeavor for the benefit of humanity – and have been very effective in doing so. But what impact will AI have on these systems and the global creative landscape?

As advanced AI-based technologies gain traction in all sectors of the economy and yield an ever-growing influence on our daily lives, we need to gain a better understanding of the changes that AI will bring, in general, and more specifically, what AI means for innovation and creativity and for the systems and policies that seek to ensure that these activities continue to thrive.

The exhibition, AI and IP: A Virtual Experience, the first of its kind at WIPO, offers visitors an interactive opportunity to discover this radical new technology and to explore some of the many ways it promises to transform culture and industry.

Join this exciting virtual journey, explore the relationship between AI and IP, and discover some of the ways AI is shaping art, music, entertainment and technology.

The exhibition will be live from September 18 to March 18, 2021 and can be accessed here.
