Webinar Blurb :
Join Russell Maurice and Stephen Richardson as they walk through the UK-IPO’s approach to assessing the patentability of Artificial Intelligence under the exclusions of section 1(2) of the Patents Act 1977. They will set out the principles and guidance that examiners at the UK-IPO must follow, and they will use this to indicate what is likely to be allowable and what is not, before summarising the latest information on AI and ownership.
Dr Stephen Richardson and Dr Russell Maurice have in combination almost 40 years’ experience in examining computer-implemented inventions. They lead in training colleagues across the UK-IPO on how to assess computer-implemented inventions in view of the exclusions of s1(2). Stephen is currently group head of an examining group that handles data-processing technology, and Russell is a senior examiner within that group.
