    The conference was the first event held by a major patent office designed to open a discussion on the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on the patent system. It attracted over 350 representatives of industry, academia, user associations, patent law firms, the judiciary, national patent offices and government bodies. The event provided a unique opportunity for open exchanges of views and for raising awareness of:

    • Issues relating to strategies for protecting AI innovations
    • The challenges in drafting and prosecuting patent applications for AI inventions
    • Possible future considerations for patent laws

    The programme included lectures and panel discussions followed by Q&A sessions.
