- Ends: 2:00 pm on Monday, October 23, 2017
BU Law’s IP & Innovation Speaker Series is an important element of BU Law’s comprehensive IP Program. In partnership with BU’s Hariri Institute for Computing & Computational Science & Engineering, the Speaker Series gives students and faculty the opportunity to interact with leading thinkers from around the world in an exciting workshop setting. Prof. Michael Meurer will be leading this talk, the description for which is as follows: Big data is often an essential input needed by innovators seeking to develop AI technologies. In certain settings, access to data may create an entry barrier that limits who can participate in AI development. In other settings, firms may make redundant investments in building and curating similar datasets. For this event, Prof. Meurer will discuss social welfare issues concerning investment in databases that can be used to develop AI technologies, and access to those databases. Policymakers can influence investment incentives and ease of access via choices made within intellectual property law, antitrust law, privacy law, and other aspects of innovation policy.
