ChatGPT, the topic of the moment, and generative artificial intelligence (AI) systems more broadly, are AI systems that can create new content, including new computer code, designs, images and written works. They do so through artificial neural networks trained to process questions and generate outputs by recognizing patterns in massive datasets. Generative AI systems are unique because they generate entirely new content from existing data, unlike traditional AI systems that merely categorize or recognize such data.
In this three-part series, we explore areas of law that are critical to the use of generative AI and its impact in business.
Click here for Part 3, where we address some of the commercial litigation risks we foresee in business applications of ChatGPT and other generative AI solutions as they are more widely implemented. This is a less talked about area with fewer developments, given the extensive focus on privacy and copyright. Further, given the very recent release of ChatGPT, no Canadian courts have yet released any decisions on generative AI.
