This webinar will examine the following related topics:
Does the specific industry vertical demand special considerations when it comes to developing/using AI?
Should AI patent applications be written differently depending upon the industry vertical?
Unique challenges that we’ve encountered when prosecuting AI patent applications across different industry verticals; and

Super-Powering Your Patents by Switching from Technical to Conceptual Claiming
Presenters: Gerson Panitch, Partner, Finnegan
Wednesday, September 2 | 16.00 – 17.00 IDT
** This webinar is open to in house IP managers only.
Inventors, technical by their nature, tend to describe their inventions in highly technical terms. Patent attorneys, cast from similar technical molds, regularly transcribe the inventor’s disclosure into patents with technical claims. And competitors, imbued with technical acumen, are skilled in avoiding infringement by substituting alternative non-patented technical solutions to achieve a patent’s goals. This is the technical quagmire of patents. And you, as the patent attorney, are the only one with the power to break the cycle. For inventors will never stop viewing the world through a technical lens, and competitors will never stop trying to find alternative technical solutions to avoiding your patents. In this webinar open exclusively to IPR in house IP managers, we will empower you, as the patent attorney, with the ability to recast the inventor’s technical description into a conceptual one that, at the highest claiming level, omits the very details your competitors would otherwise find ways to avoid.
