Is Canada on the Brink of an AI & Diagnostics Patent Rush?

December 2, 2020

Join us for a spot of strategic prognostication, as experts from our Patent Practice Group discuss recent changes in Canada’s IP landscape and how these have the potential to shake up commercial IP strategies across the country.

AI and diagnostics (as well as other software related inventions) have for a long time found themselves in the “grey zone” of patentability, leading to uncertainty and an uneven playing field for AI and diagnostics companies.

Have recent changes paved the way for a patent system that will treat AI and diagnostics like more traditional technologies? Will this increase confidence in the patent system and lead to increased filing activity? Our panel will answer these questions and others, specifically:

  • Why is the IP landscape changing?
  • What are the likely effects of these changes?
  • What will be the impacts on the AI patent landscape?
  • What will be the impacts on diagnostics patent landscape?
