Artificial Intelligence high on agenda at WIPO meeting

By Cassandra Tanti - October 1, 2019

Monaco representatives are participating in the latest round of meetings held by the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) where artificial intelligence issues are a hot topic.

Monaco’s Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the United Nations Carole Lanteri is leading the Monegasque delegation at the 59th meeting of the World Intellectual Property Organisation currently taking place in Geneva.  

In addition to covering next year’s administrative and financial concerns, the member states will be discussing technical issues pertaining to intellectual property rights, most prominently in connection with the development of technologies using artificial intelligence.

WIPO’s Director General, Francis Gurry, reiterated the necessity for across the board cooperation between not only companies but between nations. The questions that will undoubtedly arise from endeavours using artificial intelligence and who owns the rights to such technologies are being addressed, as well as deciding what the way forward is with regard to the development and adoption of a singular global standard.

The World Intellectual Property Organisation is a dedicated UN-sponsored organisation who oversees all international contracts and agreements in the realm of intellectual property, including patents, industrial designs, and copyrights. The agency also offers services to the member states with questions or problems that stem from intellectual property rights, including necessary arbitration, information and mediation when needed.
