On 23 May, Access Partnership hosted a webinar on the far-reaching implications of AI-generated content and the platforms that facilitate its creation, such as ChatGPT. Moderated by Policy Manager Lydia Dettling, the event brought together four stakeholders from across the public sector and civil society to discuss the European Union’s AI Act and the wider regulatory debate regarding how to address these technologies.
Joining Lydia were:
- Dan Nechita, Head of Cabinet MEP Dragoș Tudorache, European Parliament
- Emilie Anthonis, Senior Vice President Government Affairs EMEA at Motion Picture Association
- Dr. Andres Guadamuz, Reader in Intellectual Property Law at the University of Sussex
- Paul Keller, Co-Founder and Policy Director at Open Future Foundation
- Lodovico Benvenuti, Managing Director European Office at IFPI
The debate was built around a series of structured questions, with audience members leaving interactive comments for further discussion before a closing Q&A. Topics ranged from misinformation, intellectual property rights, and text and data mining to the opportunities that generative AI can create within the creative sector.
