Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are technologies that are being exploited in many different industries. Patents are often sought for new inventions using these technologies, however different jurisdictions assess the patentability of such inventions in different ways that may lead to some stumbling blocks.
Hosted on 17 September 2020, in this webinar Tim Wilson discusses the current IP landscape in relation to AI and the criteria for patenting AI inventions.
