Can an artificial intelligent (AI) system be the inventor of a patent?

Australia’s Federal Court in Thaler v Commissioner of Patents recently ruled yes – and that’s attracting worldwide attention, since it’s the first time that conclusion has been reached in any jurisdiction.

In this joint Intellectual Property Research Institute of Australia/IP Australia breakfast webinar, our internationally esteemed panel will discuss the implications of such a decision.

Tune in to hear Joshua Gans, Kimberlee Weatherall and Jeannie Paterson debate whether AI systems should be able to be classified as inventors.
