This article explores authorship and ownership of such AI-generated content, and to what extent, if any, can copyrights be infringed upon when AI reproduces copyrighted works for machine learning.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies use tremendous amounts of information to learn, refine and filter data that is then used to generate an output. The process, commonly referred to as “machine learning,” allows certain AI to create entirely new content based upon the materials it used to learn.
