AI Systems and Drafting Patents: Enablement and Inventorship
Overcoming Patent Eligibility, Inventorship, and Enablement Challenges and Avoiding Rejections
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will guide patent practitioners on overcoming the challenges, including patent eligibility and enablement, when seeking patent protection for artificial intelligence (AI) systems. The panel will also discuss what can be done to anticipate and minimize the risks of Section 101 or Section 112 rejections.
- Challenges in drafting patents for AI systems under Sections 101 and 112
- What patent counsel can do to overcome those challenges
- Anticipating and avoiding Section 101 or Section 112 rejections
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What hurdles must patent counsel overcome to demonstrate inventorship with AI systems?
- How can patent counsel meet the requirements under Sections 101 and 112 in AI systems patent applications?
- What steps should patent counsel take to minimize the likelihood of Section 101 or Section 112 rejections?
