About this episode

In the third episode of the A.I series Eoin Martyn, Senior Associate in the IP and Media team talks to Nina Fitzgerald, IP and Media Partner at Ashurst to discuss all things A.I and patents.

The discussion covers the value of patent protection, patentability of A.I and computer-implemented inventions in Australia and what the future of inventions created by A.I looks like under Australian patent law.

“The courts have been increasingly critical of computer implemented inventions as they have consistently held that the patents for those inventions are actually for business methods, which are implemented in the computer and therefore fail the manner of manufacture test,” Nina goes on to say, “This doesn’t mean patents for A.I systems are not being granted, rather the number of patent applications for computer implemented inventions are increasing rapidly.”
