Partner Presents on AI Patenting at 2022 AUTM Annual Meeting

BCLP Partner George Chen will present at the 2022 AUTM Annual Meeting on Feb. 21, hosted in New Orleans and virtually. George will discuss the legal aspects of patenting artificial intelligence (AI) inventions, including a summary of the evolution of the U.S. laws related to patenting such inventions, as related to inventorship, and subject matter eligibility post-Alice. He will further touch on the best practices for counseling clients regarding how to identify such inventions that are more likely to be suitable for patenting, and how to draft patent applications that are more likely to be issued as a patent by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office.

The program will be moderated by Hope Shimabuku, director of the USPTO Texas Regional Office. Additional panelists include: Charles Kim, director of the Office of Petitions at the USPTO; and Risto Miikulainen, professor of computer science and neuroscience at the University of Texas at Austin, director of the UTCS Neural Networks Research Group, AVP of Evolutionary AI, Cognizant Technology Solutions.
