Patenting AI in the U.S. and Europe

This webinar has ended.


Artificial intelligence (AI) has gone mainstream, finding applications in technologies ranging from digital assistants to banking and finance to the automotive industry. The ascendance of AI has sparked a gold rush of sorts for companies wanting to develop the next big thing in the field, which has, in turn, led to a rapid increase in the number of patent filings related to AI technologies. But obtaining patent protection for AI can be a challenge, particularly for companies seeking patent protection in multiple jurisdictions.

In this webinar, Fish attorneys Michael Portnov and Michael Shepherd discuss the landscape surrounding AI patents in the US and Europe. They address topics such as:

  • What AI innovations might make good candidates for patenting?
  • What factors can be considered when deciding whether to patent an AI innovation?
  • What kinds of AI innovations will be found patent-eligible by the EPO, and how can you draft your specification to increase the chances of having your claims found patentable?
  • What can be done to avoid subject matter eligibility issues in the US?
  • What topics should be described in the specification for an AI innovation?
