Egypt Partakes in WIPO Conversation on IP, AI Third Session


Egypt, represented by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT), is participating in the Third Session of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Conversation on Intellectual Property (IP) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), on November 4.

The event is held as a virtual meeting, with a minimal presence of the WIPO Member States at the WIPO premises in Geneva, Switzerland.

 The First WIPO Conversation on AI and IP was convened by WIPO Director General Francis Gurry in September 2019. It brought together Member States and other stakeholders to discuss the impact of Al on IP policy, with a view to collectively formulating relevant questions. The Second Session was held as a virtual meeting, on July 7-9, 2020.

 The aim of these meetings is to provide the Member States with an opportunity to hold conversations and exchange views on various topics regarding AI for didactic purposes, and formulate the right questions that should continue to be discussed in the future, with respect to the possible impact of AI on IP systems.

 The events also aim to provide a better understanding of the impact of AI on IP, and the potential of AI in enhancing IP administration, as well as to identify the issues that need the urgent attention of Member States.

 WIPO is the global forum for IP policy, services, information and cooperation. As a specialized agency of the United Nations (UN), WIPO assists its 193 member states in developing a balanced international IP legal framework to meet society's evolving needs. It provides business services for obtaining IP rights in multiple countries and resolving disputes. It, also, delivers capacity-building programs to help developing countries benefit from using IP, and provides free access to unique knowledge banks of IP information.
