Artificial Intelligence IP roundup 2018

In our Global IP Outlook for 2018 we flagged the following key areas of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to consider for developments over the year. This post collates our related LimeGreen IP insights… and then some. Keep an eye out for our Global IP Outlook 2019 in the new year! As existing law and court decisions appear to

2018 – The year the pharma industry felt AI’s impact and potential

Artificial Intelligence (AI)  is not new… but this year its impact, and the potential for change, was felt across the pharma industry in areas such as drug discovery, tech collaboration, regulation and patentability. When considering the reasons for this, the answer is not that AI is new. ‘AI’ is an umbrella term covering a spectrum

Legal landmines lie in wait for machine learning applications

An ever-increasing variety of companies are incorporating machine learning into their products and services. Machine learning provides the ability to quickly and accurately perform, in parallel, a large number of well-defined tasks. The accuracy will improve over time as additional data is obtained and the machine learning model continues to “learn”. Many companies, however, are

The skilled machines disrupting drug design

Capable of identifying novel compounds for therapeutic use, AI is saving time and costs in a process that can take around 10 to 15 years and billions of pounds to complete. For the pharmaceutical industry, which has traditionally relied on patents to protect innovation and fund R&D, this should be good news, but is an

EU Patent Office publishes preview of guidelines on patenting AI applications

The preview-version of the EPO’s Guidelines for Examination is out now (link here), and, for the first time ever, there is specific guidance on patenting AI applications – Are there any surprises in the Guidelines? Earlier this year the European Patent Office (“EPO”) held its first ever conference on patenting artificial intelligence (“AI”). Following intensive

AI, machine learning & legal tech: The 6th Hamburg Legal Tech Meetup at Google with Hogan Lovells

On September 6, the sixth Hamburg Legal Tech Meetup took place at Google’s German headquarters in Hamburg. The Hamburg Legal Tech Meetup is an event series initiated by Nico Kuhlmann (Hogan Lovells). The gathering of stakeholders aims at elaborating new ways of adapting legal services to digitalisation by further enhancing interdisciplinary and inter-industry exchange in the

The Patent Implications of Using AI in the Global Marketplace

International usage can lead to problems through data collection, disclosure and more. In addition to issues regarding inventorship and infringement, companies utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning may face obstacles when training data is obtained internationally. Many applications of machine learning continually train and update the relevant models and neural networks using data collected
