Dr. Ashley Sloat has been invited to deliver this year's Patsnap Frontier Conference Keynote. This incredible online conference connects innovators and industry leaders from across a diverse array of technology sectors to share key insights and dive deeply into current trends. With thousands of online attendees each year, this annual event has evolved into a thriving hub for conversations about the future of innovation. This year, expert speakers will be discussing topics ranging from optimizing the integration of artificial intelligence and overcoming technical obstacles, to strategically leveraging intellectual property to drive innovation and pave the way for the future. Our keynote will explore the ongoing and impending impacts of AI in the IP world and the possible futures it could create, looking at both dystopian and utopian outcomes for the patent system.
Will AI Terminate or Save the Patent System?
Our news feeds are overrun with stories of how AI is profoundly reshaping the world at a breakneck pace and achieving results that were only recently the mere dreams (or perhaps threats!) of science fiction. But how will this now inevitable rise of the machines reshape our IP legal industry and the very property rights systems that undergird science, technology, and the modern innovation economy? Beyond fears of a dystopian employment outlook for agents, attorneys, and searchers, could AI actually invalidate the entire patent system once it’s no longer able to deliver on its constitutionally expressed goals? Or could super intelligence actually be just the kind of cybernetic hero from the future that the breaking system needs to save so many patents (and an unsustainable bar) from an unfortunate judgment day?
