Generative AI in the Public Sector: Intellectual Property (IP) Considerations, Legal Risks and Governance Issues

In recent years, generative artificial intelligence (AI) has shown immense potential in reshaping various industries including the public sector. Generative AI technology’s ability to generate content, simulate real-world scenarios and devise innovative solutions present a wide spectrum of promising and transformative possibilities, by improving decision-making processes, enhancing citizen services, and optimising resource allocation. However, it is essential to find the middle ground between harnessing AI’s capabilities and addressing the IP implications and legal concerns to ensure its responsible use and integration within the public sector.


This half-day seminar provides public agency officers with a condensed overview of generative AI and its applications, intellectual property (IP) considerations, legal risks and governance issues when using generative AI technologies. Participants will gain essential insights into managing their IP assets and ensuring legal compliance in the context of generative AI.
