Center for Intellectual Property and Competition Law (CIPCO)

IP law framework for AI – status quo and outlook (11.06.2021)

  • The state of the discourse on applying IP law to AI
  • Business chances and legal challenges AI poses to companies in pharma, manufacturing, infrastructure and other sectors
  • Portfolio strategies and benchmark legal advice regarding AI-related IP rights
  • Developments in the US and Asia
Our workshop on AI&IP, the kick-off for a research and event project in cooperation with the Swiss Intellectual Property Institute, analyses these and further issues. High-profile speakers from industry, academia and legal practice provide a profound overview on where we stand in the interaction of AI&IP.
