Marks & Clerk are proud to present the AI, IP and You: Real-World Protection for Artificial Intelligence Innovation seminar, hosted across Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Glasgow.
Innovation in AI is breaking through into mainstream applications as never before. No longer limited to AI specialists, innovation can be found across a wide range of applications, including the medical, energy and manufacturing sectors, amongst many others. Such innovation requires insight, expertise and investment to produce but, once released, may be easy for competitors to copy.
To discuss how the intellectual property system, including patents and copyright, can be used to help retain control of AI innovations in the real world, Graham McGlashan, Partner at Marks & Clerk, will be joined by Callum Sinclair, partner and Head of Technology and Commercial at Burness Paull, as well as guest speaker Chris Blake, Head of Research and Development at Imrandd.
Much of Graham’s work lies in the interface between fields of technology, such as the application of artificial intelligence, modelling and algorithms to oil and gas technologies, and is regularly listed in “IAM Patent 1000 – The World’s Leading Patent Professionals”, and has commented on IP issues in publications as diverse as the Times, the Scotsman, Computer Weekly and Business Insider.
Callum has worked in the field of information and communications technology law for over 20 years. Chris has a life-long passion for technology, and is a recognised thought-leader in Technology, having been named in the UK Lawyer magazine’s “Hot 100” of 2018, in The Times’ 2016 Digital List of 100 people from Scotland’s digital technologies industry who are “changing the world”, and won the Leadership Award at the 2018 ScotlandIS Digital Tech Awards.
