AI licenses


J Lovejoy
 

Hi David,

Off top of head, I’m not sure if any AI-specific license have been submitted in the past but one of the RAIL licenses has just been submitted recently. It had not been reviewed yet but any license with various restrictions on fields of use would not have been accepted under the old incision guidelines. TBD as so far as the current guidelines. 

From a lawyer’s perspective (separate from SPDX), I find the licenses with restrictions on various types of use - while well-intended - to be pose potential challenges, both legally and practically. Time will tell!

Just out of curiosity, has SPDX been requested to or considered assigning identifiers to artificial intelligence software licenses?  I ran across the Stable Diffusion README, which contains the following:

The CreativeML OpenRAIL M license is an Open RAIL M license, adapted from the work that BigScience and the RAIL Initiative are jointly carrying in the area of responsible AI licensing. See also the article about the BLOOM Open RAIL license on which our license is based.

I don't know much about AI/ML, but it's still a fascinating topic.

V/R,

Hi David,

Good timing: the BigScience Open RAIL-M License was just submitted for consideration a few days ago. [1]

The license inclusion principles [2] contemplate that licenses to be added to the list might include software licenses as well as data-focused licenses. I haven't taken a look at this one in any detail yet, but I'd assume that it would be considered under the inclusion principles in the same manner as other software- and/or data-focused licenses.

Best,
Steve

https://lists.spdx.org/g/spdx-ai has the mailing list for those interested in subscribing.

Group meets once a week on Wednesday afternoons. 

I've also added Gopi explicitly to this thread, as he is a main participant and his research area 
is dataset licensing,  so will be very interested in this topic as well. 

Thanks,
Kate

Hi David,
    In the AI/ML special interest group, we're analyzing how to rep
the AI apps & datasets using SPDX, so we'll probably need to head in
that direction over time.    One of the regulars in that group is also
very interested in licensing, so it might make sense to have a
discussion in that SIG at some point?

Thanks,
Kate
