Artificial intelligence and intellectual property

Sirris gave a presentation on artificial intelligence and intellectual property, together with BEA, at the CFIB's Annual Days in Lyon.

The CFIB is a francophone association of patent information professionals, a special place for free exchanges and cooperation among its members. Its secretary is Fabienne Windels from Sirris.

The 4 and 5 June 2018 Annual Days of the CFIB were held at the Total Research Centre (CRES Solaize). 82 participants were gathered for various workgroups and conferences on interesting patent-related topics.

In particular, Sirris gave a presentation on artificial intelligence and intellectual property, together with BEA.

Given AI's capacity to process large volumes of data rapidly, to identify models and efficiently analyse solutions, it is increasingly used by organisations that have to solve complex problems. And its disruptive effects are being progressively felt on traditional business models especially in intellectual property where legal concepts such as "copy", "originality", "creator", "author" or "inventiveness" are having to be completely revised.

Many questions remain unanswered and are causing a lot of debates among lawyers, whereas engineers progress and are achieving surprising results in terms of "artificial creativity".

Moreover, this year, the CFIB celebrated its 30th birthday and on this occasion, since the profession of patent information specialists is continually changing, the Club gave its members symbolic chameleons. The coloured objects had been 3D printed at Sirris.
