Microsoft Today, three data sharing agreements that they hope to serve as a basis for other organizations wanting to create similar documents are published.
In today's announcement, Erich Anderson, Corporate Vice President and Chief IP Counsel at Microsoft, claims that while many organizations want to collaborate on shared datasets, the logistics are for these agreements. Creating – Spending months on negotiating and talking to lawyers – often stop or stop these projects.
"We want to help make it easier for individuals and organizations who want to share data to do so," writes Anderson. "Frequently, wide-ranging agreements for data sharing are unnecessarily long and complex. We also think that there is an important role for agreements that limit rights to computer use for AI. Furthermore, we believe that the state of art on data parts for proprietary and private datasets is rapidly changing and the public conditions could be improved and better explained. "
The three agreements focus on slightly different use cases. One of these is the & # 39; Computational Use of Data Agreement & # 39; for sharing data from publicly available sources for computational purposes that does not include, for example, personal data. The "Data Use Agreement for Open AI Model Development", on the other hand, is all about training AI models with data that may include personal data, while the "Open Use of Data Agreement" , as its name implies, focuses on making data publicly available.
Anderson states that Microsoft makes these licenses available for community review and input. "In advance, our goal is to work with interested stakeholders to improve these deals and offer extra that cover a wide range of data sharing resources," he notes.
