IP Valuation – assessing commercial value intangible assets
Join fellow SA LESANZ members in-person for this seminar. Valuation of IP and intangible assets is a key component of commercialisation and licensing. IP commercialisation often requires multiple rounds of capital raising, and thus it is crucial to be able to express and justify the commercial value of your IP to potential investors.
Patents workshop for beginners
Hosted by IEEE | This workshop will provide some general background on patents and then work on a hypothetical case study based on this paper: https://research-repository.griffith.edu.au/handle/10072/411699. This paper describes a hyperspectral imaging application, which could be turned into a commercial product with patent protection. Attendees will learn about the process of extracting the invention from the paper, drafting claims, commercial considerations, prior art etc. The seminar will also touch briefly on software copyright and wrap up with Q&A.
AI inventorship: ‘The Rise of the Machines’ in AU & NZ
The case of whether an artificial intelligence (AI) can be recognised as an inventor under the patent system has been tested in several jurisdictions in the past year. Recently, IPONZ and the Australian Full Federal Court have heard cases brought by Dr Stephen Thaler who tried to list the AI system ‘DABUS’ he created as an inventor on a patent application. We will discuss these decisions from AU & NZ perspectives, including why the Assistant Commissioner in New Zealand determined that an AI cannot be considered an inventor under the New Zealand Patents Act and compare that decision with the Australian cases, where the Federal Court initially found an AI could be an inventor, before this was overturned on an appeal to the Full Federal Court. Then hear about the commercialisation journey for Presagen and how they are using AI to bring about better clinical outcomes for women, as well as their learnings along the way.
Quantum Technologies – Australia’s Quantum Future

Strategies for Protecting Artificial Intelligence Invention
