Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is advancing at an exponential rate. AI is a transformative force, reshaping industries and business paradigms, driven by innovations in cloud computing, big data, open-source software and algorithms.

Navigating AI and intellectual property requires the specialised knowledge of AWA’s interdisciplinary team. Comprising over 40 experienced professionals, including attorneys at law and patent attorneys, our dedicated team combines in-depth legal knowledge and deep technical competence in the latest AI and machine learning (ML) tools to provide clients with strategic advice and innovative solutions.

Intellectual property protection for AI assets is more critical than ever, requiring a multipronged approach that combines all types of intellectual property, including copyright, patents, trademarks and trade secrets.

AI tools are also revolutionising the way people in creative industries create, distribute and protect their work as well as the need to enforce their rights. We are passionate about assisting our clients in safeguarding their creative integrity while protecting their intellectual property rights.

Our global team regularly delivers presentations and lectures on the protectability of AI-generated materials including text, sound and pictures as well as AI patent innovation perspectives and regulations, the EU AI Act and China Patent Law perspectives.

The European Patent Office (EPO) has established a stable and predictable framework for the patentability of computer-implemented inventions, including AI-related inventions. We are well-versed in this framework and have assisted our clients in navigating this complex process to protect their AI technologies.

We also assist clients in ensuring their intellectual property and other rights are properly protected as they develop, supply and use AI tools in their business operations. AWA’s objective is to ensure that our clients leverage new AI technologies in their businesses for maximum advantage while taking steps to mitigate any risks and challenges that may arise from adopting AI technologies.

The global AI industry is thriving and reshaping business. Please get in touch with one of our dedicated team members to learn more about how we are helping clients with intellectual property and legal issues related to artificial intelligence.
