Public Talk – I3PM Fireside chat: Ask us anything on GenAI and IP

Public Talk – I3PM Fireside chat: Ask us anything on GenAI and IP

Now this was an interesting discussion, lead by Jamie Soon-Kesteloot, and with Bastian Best and Dr. Benjamin DelSol.

We have touched on the following matters:

Fears and Concerns Related to Generative AI

As generative AI evolves, people worry about mastering the technology, data security, and how it might affect their work quality. Education and practice can help ease these fears.

Addressing Security and Confidentiality
Using offline tools and having agreements with AI providers can help keep data secure. Good data security practices build trust in AI.

Applications of Generative AI Beyond Patent Drafting
Generative AI can help with drafting forms, searching for prior art, translations, idea generation, patentability assessments, and IP strategy management, enhancing various IP tasks.

Evolution of Strategies with AI Tools
AI could lead to more patent filings, but focusing on quality rather than quantity is essential to add value.

Inference Quality with Increasing Content Window Sizes of AI Models
As AI models handle more data, using effective prompts and managing context is key to keeping outputs accurate and reliable.

Drafting Patent Applications for Similar Inventions from Different Clients
AI won’t produce identical drafts for similar inventions from different clients if inputs are diverse and conflicts of interest are managed.

Future of the IP Profession with Generative AI
Generative AI will transform the IP profession, making roles more strategic. While some tasks might be automated, human expertise will still be vital.

Impact on Patent Examiners
AI will help patent examiners assess patentability and improve efficiency, leading to better and quicker examinations.
