We welcome Nigel Swycher, former IP lawyer and now CEO of Aistemos a leading IP analytics company, as the key note speaker to our plenary session following our AGM on Thursday 23rd November, from 4 to 6pm, at the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys, Halton House, 20-23 Holborn, London EC1N 2JD.
Nigel’s topic “AI meets IP – a meeting of the minds” addresses the key topics of productivity and creativity. Rather than take away jobs, Nigel will put the case for the benefits from AI led innovation. For the economy to fully benefit the IP world will need to focus less on disputes and more on licensing.
We live in a time where all sectors are technology sectors, where there is more digitised patent information than ever before and an era where powerful and affordable computing is available in the cloud. Nigel will explain how this has developed from Turing to the reading of AI scans, how this relates to IP and how together AI and IP can deliver great benefits to society and the economy.
Nigel Swycher is the founder and CEO of Aistemos, an IP analytics and strategy company with headquarters in London. Nigel’s career includes the development of the intellectual property practice at leading law firm Slaughter and May.
Nigel is committed to providing more accessible information of technology protected by patents globally. The product Cipher harnesses the power of AI and machine learning to deliver greater accuracy and accessibility.
Nigel is also involved in a range of initiatives aimed at improving the quality of patent data, and is a director of ORoPO (the Open Register of Patent Ownership). Nigel is recognised as one of the world’s leading IP Strategists in the 2017 IAM Strategy 300.
