Do machines with “intelligence” have the right of ownership over the things they create? That is the question brought up in a recent The Conversation article.
The Conversation echoes what we already know: “The protection of intellectual property is essential for economic advancement.

Human progress would ultimately suffer.” Even now, countries around the world are still hammering out intellectual property rights for their citizens.
As society has advanced and adapted robots and AI-machines into its daily routines, questions and conversations about the limitations, impact, and disruptions of AI have increased.
