In this (first!) episode of The Best Practice podcast, I’ll walk you through the section on AI and machine learning in the EPO’s patent examination guidelines. I’ll make the point that they are too restrictive when it comes to patenting AI innovations. At the end of the episode, I’m also sharing some of my best tips for how to draft AI patent applications so that they fulfill what’s in the guidelines.
You can watch the video version on YouTube or listen to the audio-only version on your favorite podcast platform.
