Summary

The possible emulation of human creativity by various models of artificial intelligence systems is discussed in this chapter. In some instances, the degree of originality of creations using algorithms may surprise even human beings themselves. For this reason, copyright protection of ‘works’ created by autonomous systems is proposed, which would take account of both the fundamental contributions of computer science researchers and the investment in human and economic resources that give rise to these ‘works’.
