Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly affecting our lives in various ways and it‘s widely believed that the effects of AI on day-to-day activities and ventures will accelerate rapidly in coming years. Little by little the ramifications of AI will be felt in many areas of our existence, including the arts. Challenging questions regarding copyrights will inevitably arise at some point. Who is the actual author of a tune written by an application software aided by AI? Who really owns the rights to such works? Will they enjoy the same statutory rights as the works of real artists have done in the past? These questions among others will be discussed at this conference, held by STEF (The Performing Rights Society of Iceland) at Harpa on March the 22nd.
At the conclusion of the conference a musical piece will be performed, a compositions which the participants will create with the help of AI.
Conference starts at 10:00 AM, ends at 16:00 PM.
Included in the admission fee is a buffet lunch and coffee.
Moderator: Guðrún Björk Bjarnadóttir, CEO of STEF
