Abstract

Artificial intelligence is real. Oxford Dictionary defines AI as computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence. That is simply why we see artificial intelligence emerge in every area and subject that was considered to be exclusive to human intelligence. One of these subjects was art or in a more general sense; creation of original things, be it concrete or abstract. This frontier is currently being attacked fiercely by the machines which apparently act autonomously. They are claimed or rather known to be creating works of art. However, although they mimic the human intelligence, they lack the corporal existence of one and are currently not regarded as entities that may have rights in the conventional sense. That leaves the question of ownership and/or authorship regarding works created by autonomous machines unanswered.

Keywords: Artificial Intelligence, AI System, Definition of AI, Made for Hire, Authorship in Works Created by AI
