Biotechnology Innovation and Legal Challenges under the Background of Artificial Intelligence

Prof. Song WEI
President of Biotechnology Law Commission


In recent years, with the rapid development of life sciences and information technology, the artificial intelligence (AI) field has experienced unprecedented breakthroughs. Personalized information recommendations, voice control, face recognition, and other technologies have begun to enter daily life, making it more efficient and convenient. Meanwhile, the development of biotechnology has entered the initial stage of large-scale industrialization. Biological technology innovation and industry development have accelerated the arrival of both a new technological and industrial revolution. Together they have promoted economic development and social progress in terms of revealing life rules, revolutionizing the medical field, developing new energy, upgrading traditional industries, and improving the environment. Furthermore, the integrative development of AI and biotechnology has the potential to profoundly influence the thinking paradigm and lifestyle of mankind in the foreseeable future, and to develop a new perspective of human understanding.


While greatly improving human well-being, the development of AI and biotechnology also brings problems and potential challenges. What standards should we adopt to protect social ethics and individual privacy when applying gene editing or information recognition technology (such as face, voice and fingerprint recognition)? Should the works created by AI be protected by copyright law? How do we determine legal liability when consumers are injured by driverless cars or home robots? In a word, how can we ensure the application of AI and biotechnology is safe and meets the ethical norms?


In order to address these questions, the session jointly organized by Biotechnology Law Commission and Privacy and Rights of the Digital Person Commission will introduce cutting-edge scientific and technological achievements, explore new trends and features of biological technology development, and discuss potential legal problems and ethical risks in the era of AI. The main topics include:
1) The present, future and challenges of life sciences and information technology integration;
2) Intellectual property protection in the development of AI and biotechnology;
3) Laws, regulations, policies and agreements related to biotechnology industrialization;
4) Legal and ethical risks in the development of gene and stem cell technology.


 We believe this session will inspire legal professionals and scholars to explore and pursue new ideas on a series of key issues that accompany the integration of life sciences and information technology in the era of AI, including but not limited to intellectual property, technology innovation, industrial policy, and the application, specifications and ethical standards of biotechnological development.
