Patents and Artificial Intelligence: what’s next?

2019 AIPPI World Congress

Tuesday, September 17, 2019 -

Artificial Intelligence, or “AI”, has gained prominence across many sectors from healthcare to finance, telecommunications to marketing, and transportation to genetics. A panel session at the Cancun Congress in 2018 introduced some fundamental concepts of AI and discussed AI in the broader context of intellectual property rights. This panel session will now specifically focus on patents in relation to AI. Protecting AI with patents raises many interesting issues including patent eligibility, clarity, disclosure and enablement. Previous sessions have focused on some or all of these issues at a high level. This panel session will dig into some of the substantive topics relevant to AI by focusing on real life examples and considering how different jurisdictions are likely to approach these examples. Our panelists will be patent practitioners, both in-house and from outside counsel firms, who handle AI related subject matter from a variety of technology sectors on a daily basis. They will speak with in depth experience from recent cases, focusing on practical issues that will inform and educate.
