For innovative companies the life blood is having engineers and scientists who produce invention disclosures. Unfortunately, as good as they are at creating, engineers and scientists are generally far less equipped to explain what it is that they have created, which creates an obstacle from the start.
As every patent attorney can attest, often invention disclosures lack concrete description at best, and are rather cryptic at worse. How can innovative companies determine which ideas should be pursued, which require more work and those that need to be scrapped altogether if it is unclear what has been invented in the first place?
Join Gene Quinn, the founder of IPWatchdog.com and one of the top IP strategists in the world, for a wide-ranging conversation about facilitating and augmenting invention disclosures using artificial intelligence. Joining Gene will be Carlo Cotrone, Chief IP Counsel at Techtronic Industries North America (TTI), Dr. Kate Gaudry, Partner with Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton, and Jim Durkin, Former USPTO Examiner and Product Manager for IP.com.
In addition to taking your questions, the panel will discuss:
- The budgetary impact of cryptic invention disclosures;
- Accelerating innovation and product lifecycles; and
- Artificial Intelligence tools for assisting and augmenting invention disclosures.
