Tips and tricks for patents for the digital future by European patent attorney Bastian Best
Patents for AI: reveal the training data? (T 0161/18)
How much detail do you need to reveal in an AI-related patent to meet the enablement requirement? Do you need to disclose the training data for the artificial neural network? In this episode I discuss a recent EPO Board of Appeal decision on the topic: T 0161/18 (Äquivalenter Aortendruck/ARC SEIBERSDORF) of 12.5.2020.
