This panel will focus on IP and other legal challenges and opportunities at the cutting edge of emerging and future technology, where current legal and IP systems may break down, eg, cloning and gene-enhancing technologies, artificial intelligence, human-animal chimeras, robotic medicine/surgery, virtual reality, etc.
- What are some of the philosophical, ethical, policy and legal issues that might emerge well into our future?
- How would IP and other laws and ethical rules apply to cloned humans or human-animal hybrid subjects?
- What about artificial intelligence with human qualities, or human parts?
