Using Patents to Bolster Competitive Advantage of Your AI Inventions in Manufacturing
Attendees will learn several best practices for how to strategically patent innovations arising from AI in manufacturing technologies, including industrial Internet of Things (iIoT), digital twins, and software patents. Your intellectual property (IP) strategy can bolster your competitive advantage—whether your invention relates to applied AI to improve a product being manufactured, improving IoT cybersecurity of a connected smart factory, or a machine learning model that is trained on proprietary diagnostic data to predict maintenance troubles. Moreover, building a strong IP framework for your manufacturing technologies is critical to avoiding landmines in the patent landscape. Manufacturing companies can face attacks from numerous directions when integrating AI and software/IoT technologies into their facilities. This session will also explain ways to minimize the risk of a patent lawsuit. Attends will learn a holistic framework to implement an IP strategy from both offensive and defensive positions.
Attendees will also learn to:
allocate a limited, legal budget to more efficiently secure patents for AI manufacturing innovations;
identify what aspects of your manufacturing innovations are viable for patent protection; and
use an interdisciplinary approach with proper division of labor/expertise to select the best IP to protect.
