*/Training Data and Innovation in Markets for AI/*

*Michael Meurer, Professor of Law, BU School of Law

*Time: 12:45pm – 2pm; lunch served at 12:30pm*

*Location: Hariri Institute for Computing, 111 Cummington Mall*



*Abstract*: Big data is often an essential input needed by innovators 
seeking to develop AI technologies. In certain settings, access to data 
may create an entry barrier that limits who can participate in AI 
development. In other settings, firms may make redundant investments in 
building and curating similar datasets. For this event, Prof. Meurer 
will discuss social welfare issues concerning investment in databases 
that can be used to develop AI technologies, and access to those 
databases. Policymakers can influence investment incentives and ease of 
access via choices made within intellectual property law, antitrust law, 
privacy law, and other aspects of innovation policy.
