This is part of a series of workshops for Love Data Week, an annual festival highlighting topics, opportunities and services relevant to data in research. Love Data Week 2024 will feature a Love Data Fair on the afternoon of Valentine’s Day, February 14th, in Mackenzie Room, Jen-Hsun Huang Engineering Center.

What are the implications of the meteoric rise of generative AI technologies on authors’ writings, the landscape of publishing, and copyright law? In this presentation, Authors Alliance senior staff attorney Rachel Brooke will present a high-level overview of the ways in which generative AI systems affect working authors, serving both as powerful creative tools and potential disruptions. Drawing on her expertise in the field of copyright and AI, Rachel will explain how laws affecting authors accommodate generative AI technologies and offer some insights on open questions about generative AI and copyright. 

This in-person workshop will take place from 12PM - 1PM with an optional Q&A session from 1 PM - 1:30PM. Lunch will be provided during the Q&A. 

Rachel Brooke is a senior staff attorney at Authors Alliance, where she works on copyright and related areas of information policy affecting authors. Previously, she worked on First Amendment litigation in a newsroom and spent several years as a literary agent. She holds a J.D. from NYU School of Law.
