ChatGPT, Google Bard – the choices are endless for using Artificial Intelligence (AI)! But what are the risks? What are the rewards? Can AI be used to create content that you may want to protect later with Intellectual Property? This presentation will explore best practices (legal, ethical, and practical) for using AI as an entrepreneur, inventor or emerging company. Attendees will also learn what the world is doing to bring this present shock under some sort of control.

Presented by the Entrepreneurial Strategy Series and Gearhart Law.

He provides these services on a pro bono basis to help advise them on and bolster their intellectual property protection and strategy.
