© 2018 Revista de Derecho Civil. All rights reserved. The possible emulation of human creativity by artificial intelligence systems based on the various models of it is discussed. In some instances, the degree of originality of creations using algorithms may even surprise human beings themselves. In this work, the protection of the «works» created by an autonomous system is proposed in the field of Copyright, especially taking into account the fundamental contributions made by computer science researchers, on the one hand and, on the other, the protection of the investment in human and economic resources made to obtain these «works». Different legal frameworks are suggested in order to include algorithms generated works.
