IP café: Patenting Software and Artificial Intelligence

February 13, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Lifetech.brussels is teaming up with De Clercq & Partners one more time for a session on Software & AI Patenting.

Don’t miss out and join us at hub.brussels on Thursday February 13, 2020.


Artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionising our everyday lives. Only a few decades ago, machines were considered mainly useful for routine and repetitive assignments, now AI-equipped devices are capable of highly complex tasks previously thought exclusive to the human intelligence and capacity. Today, we see ever more ambitious applications of AI which will change the ways in which we work, play, and communicate.


What to expect?

During these sessions we will discuss:

  • The ways in which software patent applications are examined at the European Patent Office;
  • How the practice is applied specifically to AI-related inventions;
  • Some of the current talking points.

For whom?

  • IP Professionals
  • Representatives from technology transfer offices
  • Inventors
  • Investors
  • Researchers
  • Start-ups
  • Management
