IBC2022: The capabilities of artificial intelligence continue to surprise, and nowhere is this more evident than its ability to interpret video imagery and human speech. But can AI also be genuinely creative? And if so can its output be protected and exploited like human creative work? This session will provide answers from three thought-provoking studies:
First, work supported by a consortium of national Asian cricket teams looks at how the broadcast content of cricket matches is being analysed to derive detailed performance statistics of the teams. Then, from Japan, a remarkable new approach to text-to-speech conversion which is able to relate textual symbols directly to phonemes. The result is genuinely human-like speech which is being used to replace a human news presenter. Finally, a fascinating look at where international intellectual property law currently stands on the protection and ownership of AI-generated ‘creative’ work, like a musical symphony, for example.
