Patent Drafting for Machine Learning: Structural Claim Limitations, Avoiding Sections 101 or 112 Rejections, Drafting for EPO
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will guide patent practitioners in overcoming the challenges when seeking patent protection for machine learning inventions. The panel will also discuss what can be done to anticipate and minimize the risks of Sect. 101 or 112 rejections as well as drafting with an eye towards the European Patent Office (EPO).
- Challenges in drafting patents for machine learning under Sections 101 and 112
- Anticipating and avoiding Sect. 101 or 112 rejections
- Addressing inventorship issues when patenting inventions directed to machine learning
- EPO approach to patentability of machine learning or AI inventions
- Drafting tips
The panel will review these and other relevant issues:
- What are the hurdles for patent counsel to demonstrate inventorship?
- How can patent counsel meet the requirements under Sect. 101 and 112 in machine learning patent applications?
- What steps should patent counsel take to minimize the likelihood of Sect. 101 or 112 rejections?
- How does the EPO treat patent applications for machine learning technologies differently than the USPTO?
