The Boston Tech Hub Faculty Working Group, hosted by former Secretary of Defense and Harvard Kennedy School Belfer Center Director Ash Carter and Harvard SEAS Dean Frank Doyle, will convene its third session of the spring semester. This session will explore the limits and advantages of intellectual property (IP) sharing for emerging technologies. For the purposes of this discussion, we are referring to IP broadly defined: proprietary algorithms, data collected, a complete developed product, etc. This brief focuses on tech companies, research centers, and labs that decide to limit access to certain types of IP in the name of protecting overall public good—using artificial intelligence algorithms as a primary example—but we expect discussion to encompass other technologies as well. This session will also examine the implications of alleged Chinese theft of emerging tech IP.
