Event description:
You asked and we answered! MIPLA members requested a CLE regarding AI, and to keep things interesting we have invited speakers from around the world to weigh in on how to draft AI-related patent applications with a global mindset. This is not another ChatGPT discussion, and we hope that hearing from international associates will help you in your US practice as our clients request IP protection related to AI on a global scale. Our speakers will present some of their drafting strategies for patent applications filed with the USPTO, the EPO, and the CNIPA. Afterwards, we will host a moderated Q&A with the presenters. Log on ready for discussion!
