Verhaegen Walravens has been referenced in Tibbie McIntyre‘s Conference Report – ‘Moral Rights and New Technologies: Authorship, Attribution and Integrity in a Digital World‘, posted on today’s 1709 blog in relation to authorship and new technologies:

“Florian De Rouck from Verhaegen Walraevens, discussed artificial intelligence. He presented on the moral rights repercussions regarding artificial intelligence, from the 1960’s software Aaron to the cutting edge Google Magenta project, which is designed to ‘advance the state of the art in machine intelligence for music and art generation’. As it develops to greater and greater complexity, artificial intelligence will surely destabilise our current understanding of the concept of the author and the creative product.”
