Development and application of AI brings forth a number of legal issues. An area of particular interest is the protection of data. How, and what type of data can, and should, be used? For obvious reasons there is numerous regulations regarding protection of privacy and intellectual property that needs to be taken into consideration. Who is responsible for the safety and quality of the data, on what terms is data donated and is it possible to combine commercial interests with the sharing of data?
