On December 3, 2020, Hunton Andrews Kurth will host a webinar on Machine Learning Hot Topics: Negotiating Global Data Protection and IP Terms. Join our Hunton speakers, Brittany Bacon, Tyler Maddry and Anna Pateraki, as they discuss key data protection and intellectual property considerations when drafting and negotiating global agreements involving machine learning (“ML”) services and engaging in new ML practices.
The use of ML models to process proprietary data is becoming increasingly common. Many IT vendors offer ML services that can generate valuable insights derived from their customers’ proprietary data and know-how. For companies that have not yet established their own ML expertise in-house, these services can offer considerable business advantages. However, significant data protection and intellectual property risks and key considerations may come into play that require attention at the outset.
