Artificial intelligence tools, including ChatGPT and AI image generators, are being implemented into business workflows with increasing frequency, often raising ethical and legal questions about their use. This webinar will discuss both the practicalities and legal aspects of using AI-generated content, offering an overview of dealing with these complex and fast-developing tools in publishing contexts.

The webinar speaker will be filmed. Attendees will not be filmed. They can ask questions through the webinar chat functions.
