John Marshall IP Director Daryl Lim Invited to Speak at High-Level AI Conference at U.S. Patent and Trademark Office

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES , January 22, 2019 / -- Professor Daryl Lim will speak at a conference organized by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on artificial intelligence (AI) on January 31. Lim serves as Director of the Center for Intellectual Property, Information & Privacy Law at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago.

AI will produce a new wave of innovation and creativity. At the same time, it poses novel challenges and opportunities for intellectual property policy, including how AI might alter the management and organization of research, innovation and commercialization; the copyright implications when AI is used to create new works or when copyrighted works are used to “train” artificial intelligence systems; and how AI is being used to enforce IP rights, protect inventions and create new business models.

The conference will bring together leading thinkers, policy makers, academics and practitioners to examine the growing capabilities of AI, its potential economic impacts and the implications on IP policy and law. Participants include USPTO Director Andrei Iancu; IBM Chief Patent Counsel Manny Schecter; Boston University’s Chair of Strategy and Innovation Iain Cockburn; University of California (Berkeley) Faculty Director of the Coleman Fung Institute of Engineering Leadership Lee Fleming; Amazon’s Associate General Counsel for Intellectual Property Dana Brown Northcott; Microsoft’s Associate General Counsel, IP Policy & Strategy Jule Sigall; and NIST Senior Scientist Michael Garris.
