WIPR webinar: Applied AI: Effectively Monetising Innovation

March 2021

Event date: 9th March 2021

WIPR and HGF are holding a webinar on 9th March.

HGF Partner Dr Susan Keston and Patent Director Dr Lauris Kemp will be presenting a webinar on 9th March on ‘Applied AI: Effectively Monetising Innovation’, where they will discuss:

  • Gain insight via examples of European patented AI innovations from life sciences and electronics
  • Understand the AI innovation landscape and its unique challenges
  • Learn how to intelligently combine patents, trade secrets and contract law to successfully monetise AI innovation

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has finally come of age and is becoming increasingly prevalent in driving revolutionary innovation across a broad range of technologies including medical diagnosis, drug discovery, image/speech processing, digital security, industrial control processes and autonomous vehicles.

Intellectual property managers are faced with unique concerns about the viability of extracting value from AI innovation via the patent system due, for example, to implementation aspects being concealed in the cloud, or due to many innovative predictions being fuelled by a unique and valuable set of training data, itself not directly protectable via the patent system, implemented on “black box” AI tools.

The speakers explore examples of granted European AI patents spanning life sciences and electronics and suggest robust monetisation strategies for AI innovation that intelligently combine patents, trade secrets, contract law and licensing.
