Patentability of AI Driven Inventions: The Push for Legislature to Play Catch up

Artificial intelligence (AI) is being used more and more to develop new inventions without human aid. But as AI capabilities increase at a rapid pace, patent offices and business leaders around the world face a changing landscape.

The program will provide a look at AI and its effect on commerce (Research & Development), Intellectual Property (IP), and the regulatory framework, including:

Primary AI issues, including how it is being handled in various countries
What does it take to be an inventor (how that definition differs by jurisdiction)
● Legal issues and recent divergence in approach
● How are companies using AI to generate patentable works
● What do you need to know if you are using AI in your R&D
● The question of “ownership”
How are corporations using AI and navigating the IP implications?
● which output is patentable; how can it be measured?
● Who has the use-rights to the final output?
How the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is tackling the policy and practical issues surrounding AI
● will there be new / amended rules coming from the EU or are the current rules suffice
● can we raise the bar by AI assisted inventions, incl. practical implications
