BCLT/BTLJ Law & Tech Speaker Series – Womble Bond Dickinson, “AI and IP: Protection of and Infringement by AI-Powered Technologies”

Thursday, September 19, 2019 @ 12:55 pm - 1:55 pm

AI and IP: Protection of and Infringement by AI-Powered Technologies
With every cycle of improved computing power, artificial intelligence algorithms are creating better and better “art” and “music”, and can design novel and non-obvious solutions to longstanding problems. Does this mean that AIs can be “authors” and “inventors” under US intellectual property law? Chris Mammen and Carrie Richey discuss this question, as well as other intriguing questions about the use of AI in creating and enforcing IP law.
Christian Mammen, partner at Womble Bond Dickinson, has more than 20 years of experience guiding Silicon Valley and global tech and life sciences clients in high-stakes patent and intellectual property litigation. He has substantial lead counsel experience and has led both large and small trial teams. He has also served as lead counsel on appeals before the Ninth and Federal Circuits.

Carrie Richey, associate at Womble Bond Dickinson, primarily focuses on patent infringement litigation and protection of computer-related technologies. She has successfully represented clients in all phases of litigation, including investigation, discovery, law and motion, trial, and appeal.

The BCLT/BTLJ Law & Tech Speaker Series features local practitioners, bringing real world experience and practical legal knowledge to Berkeley Law students.

Lunch is served for students staying for the entire presentation.

Co-sponsored by the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology and the Berkeley Technology Law Journal. This event is open to current Berkeley Law students, Berkeley Law affiliates and BCLT law firm sponsors only.
