            style="font-size:11.0pt">: 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.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
