TOPIC: The patentability of artificial neural networks – will Australia follow the UK’s approach?
AI is the new buzzword and artificial neural networks are key to AI research and development. This session will delve into the landmark case Emotional Perception AI Ltd v Comptroller-General of Patents, Designs and Trade Marks [2023] EWHC 2948 (Ch), focusing on the critical issue of patenting artificial neural networks. The UK High Court’s decision has sparked a significant debate regarding the patentability of AI technologies, specifically those that mimic or enhance human cognitive functions. Our discussion will explore the implications of this ruling and whether such precedent could influence Australia’s stance on similar matters.

Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the legal challenges and considerations involved in patenting AI technologies, particularly those that focus on emotional perception and response. This will be an essential discussion for patent attorneys, AI developers, and policymakers interested in the intersection of law, technology, and intellectual property rights.
