We are in interesting times where #AI, #ML tech modules are empowering analysis of communication data in the online world. Nevertheless, I echo with Robert Sayre that ownership rights should be with the creator of AI.

US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has ruled that artificial intelligence systems cannot be credited as an inventor in a patent application

At the outset, star understanding of balance of IPRs were enacted to foster innovation. There is exponential shift in understanding how innovations and trade is performed to develop circular economy.

The annual WSIS Forum is a global multi-stakeholder platform facilitating the implementation of the WSIS Action Lines for advancing sustainable development. WSIS Forum 2020 will provide the ICT for development community with an opportunity for information exchange, knowledge creation and sharing of best practices, while identifying emerging trends and fostering partnerships, taking into account the evolving Information and Knowledge Societies.

The WSIS Forum is constantly evolving and strengthening the alignment between the WSIS Action Lines and the Sustainable Development Goals.

o Digital Infrastructures Access
o Cyber Safety and Sensitivity Amid COVID-19: DNS as enabler of Cybersecurity

The question is who should bear the fruits of ideation?

How to catapult you Invention aka Innovation toward a breakthrough in current scheme of numerous nodes?

Patent rights in simple words is a contract between the patentee and government.

Time is apt to share the revenue with the inventors who are generally the employees utilising the resources in R& D to develop prototypes which then become products / processes.

In law school we are taught contract is null and void, if the contract itself is one-sided contractual agreement. However, in reality most of the contracts drafted especially #IPclause and sub-clauses depict a different story altogether.

In my personal opinion rather than discussing nomenclatures as to the naming of inventors…we all should put forward the point of sharing revenues with the inventors so pie of 1% owning the wealth is re-distributed to right people in the organization.

Law of cause and effect has taught us in recent months that most flourishing cities on this planet has become #Ghostcities. Moral of the story co-create and work in holistic view to flourish. Re-iterating Master & Slave concept #patent #innovation

Coined in 1956 by John McCarthy, AI is “the science and engineering of making intelligent machines, especially intelligent computer programs”. As such, these #AIsystems are created by “natural persons”.

Workshop on Intellectual Property Rights sponsored by DBT , India

Be a Technology Maverick to understand IPRs

Going back memory lane is always special. We discussed about silver lining difference between discovery and innovation. Workshop on Intellectual Property Rights sponsored by DBT was an enriching experience to share with budding Botany students from University of Delhi as to how IPRs can be harnessed in time to come.

About the Intellectual Property Rights Workshop

 The creativity and innovations in science and technology are the major drivers for the socioeconomic growth of developed and developing countries in this 21st century.  To get intellectual rights for such new inventions, techniques, models, plant varieties, chemical compounds, drugs and etc. and selling these rights to other countries/company/organizations could elevate the economic status of the nation.

 The major aim of this workshop is to create an awareness among young minds about the basic concepts of IPR, Patents, Copyrights, Trademark, protection of plant varieties/traditional knowledge and their claims.

 Also aims at establishing a basic level of understanding about the laws, rules and regulations related to IPR.

Filing Patents to gain access in the fintech sector is a good strategic move. Walmart and other important business entities just file patents with two viewpoints. One viewpoint is very obvious to create a playing field for all other players in the market.

Other not so discussed pointer is defensive publication of the technology so the publication itself becomes prior art and no other patent applicant is able to bag the coveted prize of owning a patent.

Defensive publication of the technology so the publication itself becomes prior art

Sustainability of any technology is the need of the hour and reaching masses to develop win-win approach is the only way out to understand technologies around financial sector. The emerging digital technologies is not limited to 5G, AI, IoT, cloud computing, Bigdata and blockchain to enable mass consumption and envisage the big picture for the 5 trillion economy of India.

History is the Biggest Saviour and Governments Across Know that Innovation and IPR will attract more investment to generate job opportunities for the masses. Data is crucial and Big data is the new mining oil to harness creative content for the masses to imbibe.
