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.
