EU Guidelines for Patenting AI and Machine Learning Technologies: Comparison With U.S. Approach
Navigating EPO and USPTO Rules to Maximize Patent Protection
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will guide patent practitioners in overcoming the challenges when seeking patent protection for artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning (ML) inventions. The panel will examine the guidelines from the European Patent Office (EPO) and compare the EU approach with the U.S. approach.
- EU guidelines on patentability of AI and ML technologies
- Comparison of EU and U.S. approaches to AI and ML patentability
- Best practices for maximizing IP protection for AI/ML technologies
The panel will review these and other relevant issues:
- What are the hurdles for patent counsel to demonstrate an AI invention to be patentable in the EU?
- How does the EPO treat patent applications for AI and ML technologies differently than the USPTO?
- What best practices can patent counsel employ to maximize patent protection for AI and ML technologies?
- What are the data rights and privacy concerns that patent counsel should be aware of related to AI and ML technologies?
