Patents vs trade secrets for inventions that use artificial intelligence
David Sanker (Morgan Lewis)
About this talk
For new inventions, companies generally have the choice between filing a patent application and keeping the invention as a trade secret. Although the general factors for making that decision are well known, there are some nuances when the invention uses artificial intelligence. This presentation provides a simple framework for analyzing inventions that use machine learning, and uses that framework to develop appropriate IP strategies when inventions use AI.
