How will AI affect patent work?

We all know that Artificial Intelligence is here to stay. But what is Artificial Intelligence after all, how will it affect patent work and is the AI-based patent software available today useful?

To shed some light on these questions, we have invited a group of people who can provide insight into the whole value chain, ranging from the AI machinery over the potential impact to hands-on experience:

• Dennis Pultz, Science Manager of AI at Novozymes
• Hanane Fathi Roswall and Anders Sandgaard, Partners at aera
• Ana Eugénio, Senior Patent Counsel at Topsoe


8:30 – 9:00 Coffee & breakfast

09:00-09.05 Welcome, Christian Kragelund and Bianca Bothmann, DIFI

9:05-9:50 Dennis Pultz: How does AI work?
Dennis will give us an introduction to what goes on in the machine room of AI. What is AI useful for and what are the pitfalls?

A short break

10:15 – 11:00 Hanane Roswall and Anders Sandgaard: AI, the death of a patent agent?
Hanane and Anders will open for a discussion about how AI will affect the future patent work for a patent agent.

11:00 – 11:45 Ana Eugénio: AI-based patent software – useful or useless?
Ana will share some of her hands-on experience with AI-based software.

11:45 – 12:00 Wrap up & thank you for today.
