Synopsis

The rapid growth and adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) raises a number of different issues for the patent system, and more generally for intellectual property rights as a whole.  One area of particular controversy is inventorship.  As the law is currently applied by the IPO and the EPO, a patent application requires the identification of at least one human inventor.  In this webinar we look at potential problems with the present approach, and review suggestions for a way forward from both a legal and practical perspective.  The webinar ties in with other recent CIPA activity relating to AI, including a CIPA discussion paper concerning key issues and submissions to a WIPO consultation.
