I got disinvited from a workshop at Berkeley on Buddhism and AI

Very interesting. I do wonder why… Must admit my first thought was about this post. Since, as you say, your data is the foundation for much of their work, that’s a bit… awkward. While one would think that that would be all the more reason to meet up and discuss the issues in person… without any legal recourse (already public domain) it’s certainly more convenient for them to just sweep the issue of appropriation under the rug along with the rest of the history of academia.
