AI & Machine Learning

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) have become essential to technical innovation. Protecting AI inventions to the fullest extent possible is paramount for future business success and should lie at the heart of any IP strategy.

AI and ML represent a subclass of software-related inventions based on computational models and algorithms. IP protection for these products benefits greatly from our vast expertise in software inventions.

Generally, one may obtain patent protection for the specific training of an AI model for a particular technical application, the development of a new AI model for a distinct technical application, or the novel use of an existing AI model to solve a technological problem by technical means. The importance of an enabling disclosure (e.g. regarding training data choices) and the continued development of software case law require careful treatment by true software patent experts. We are happy to answer all your questions regarding patenting AI and ML and look forward to exploring how we can leverage our extensive knowledge in this field to your advantage.
