Keynote Address - Implementing AI in the Age of COVID19
Join venture capitalist Vinay Iyengar as he discusses the recent advances in AI, the key considerations for implementing AI in your product, and why COVID19 presents new opportunities to build AI systems.
Panel One: Training Sets and AI: Identifying and Setting Up the Right Package to Monetize
Data is being generated at an alarming speed and is critical to the success of many organizations. Data types include proprietary information from commercial and industrial processes, customer data, data generated from AI and other analytics, sensitive personal data, and public data. Successful tools, products, and business models frequently require data from multiple sources resulting in combined and derived data sets.
The panel will explore issues around the creation, ownership and monetization of complex mixed data sets. A panel of IP owners from diverse industries will discuss strategies employed to optimize business outcomes while protecting sensitive data and privacy.
Moderator: Charles Macedo, Partner, Amster, Rothstein & Ebenstein LLP
Panel Sponsor: Amster, Rothstein & Ebenstein LLP
Panel Two: Owning What AI Creates
On August 1, 2019 the University of Surrey issued a press release claiming that it was pursuing US and European patent protection for the world’s first AI invention. Shortly thereafter on August 21, 2019, the USPTO promulgated a “Request for Comments on Patenting Artificial Intelligence Inventions”, and in October 2019 expanded the RFC to include examination of copyright, trade secret, and trademark protections for works and outputs generated by AI. While some believe that AI technology is a long way off from creating inventions or works without intervention or involvement by humans, businesses and governing bodies are preparing now for the day when the creative genius in their midst is comprised of zeros and ones.
We will discuss the challenges facing the scope of patent, copyright, and trade secret protections, and techniques for using licensing terms to protect against gaps in IP protections. Our panelists will discuss the state of the AI ecosystem across several industries, and trends to look out for as the AI economy continues to evolve.
Moderator: Chad Rutkowski, Partner, Baker Hostetler
Panel Three: Extraction of Value from IP Created by AI
Behind the legalities of ownership and protection lies the driving factor for companies investing in AI – the value of IP created by AI. Panelists from a variety of industries will discuss valuation models for the IP, field of use restrictions and permission requirements in contracts for licensing or sale of IP, and commercialization strategies.
