Marks & Clerk is proud to present the AI, IP and You: Real-World Protection for Artificial Intelligence Innovation seminar at the Bayes Centre on October 26th.
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, Pam Bryer and Gavin Cullen, Partner and Senior Associate at Marks & Clerk, will be joined by Callum Sinclair, partner and Head of Technology and Commercial at Burness Paull, as well as guest speaker Magnus Wahrenberg, Principle Scientist and IP Lead for Canon Medical Research Europe. Involved in both innovation development and the IP process, Magnus will give a client perspective of how he has protected innovation using IP.
