Artificial Intelligence

In recent years, neural networks, AI have become, perhaps, the main agenda of the XXI century for humanity. This is due to the fact, that AI is not just another way of automation, but a cardinal transformation of all spheres of life.

The questions, raised by artificial intelligence technologies, are often at the crossroads of jurisprudence with ethics and even philosophy and require us to apply a systematic and multidisciplinary approach to their resolution. Answers to these questions are complex, but necessary, as more and more countries adopt national strategies in the field of artificial intelligence. Aleinikov & Partners team worked through the concept of introducing the so-called “digital person” into the Belarusian legislation as an entity with certain rights and civil obligations, as well as issues, related to the ownership of rights to objects, created in full or partially by neural networks, including their security.

What we can help with:

  • Development of a monetization model for a project, based on AI technologies;
  • Formalization and transfer of rights to training datasets;
  • Usage of third-party IP neural networks for training, as well as user-generated content;
  • Personal data issues in training neural networks;
  • The usage of AI in healthcare, as well as of medical data.
