APAA Webinar Series: When AI Invents

Are the current intellectual property and patent regimes adequate to accommodate the impact of AI in the development of new innovations and inventions? This webinar will explore these pressing issues with our esteemed panel of IP experts:

  • Who owns the patent rights to an AI invention? Would the programmer or the person who wrote the AI program have rights?
  • Should an AI invention be measured using the established patent principle that it is inventive if it is not obvious to a person skilled in the art, when the task an AI performs and the “knowledge” it possesses are beyond that of a (human) inventor?
  • Who should be a “person skilled in the art” when it involves an AI invention?
  • Do we need a new type of intellectual property right or patent system that specifically deals with AI inventions and innovations?
