Protecting AI Intellectual Property

17 May 2018

Artificial Intelligence promises to change our lives profoundly, revolutionizing everything from the way we travel, manufacture, or use services, like banking and healthcare. UK companies are in the forefront of driving this revolution, and many are based in the Oxfordshire area. One of keys to this success will be the ability to protect the intellectual property that they are developing.

This workshop brings together the CEO’s of some Oxford based AI companies as well as experts in IP protection from JA Kemp, in order to discuss what works and what doesn’t.

There will be presentations, discussion, the opportunity to network, and advice on hand from JA Kemp’s expert patent attorneys.

The event is free to attend for all guests invited by J A Kemp.

The Workshop will be mediated by JA Kemp. The following speakers will offer their own perspective of the issues and challenges they have found as the basis for a wider discussion:

  • Dr Rob Buckingam is the Head of Culham's RACE (Remote Applications in Challenging Environments) facility. He started his career at Culham before leaving to set up Bristol-based, OC Robotics. As a co-founder of OC Robotics he has been a pioneer in the use of snake-arm robots in hazardous and confined spaces working in the nuclear sector, aerospace, construction and petrochemicals. At RACE he is increasingly involved in working with groups like the AI vehicle software developer, Oxbotica.
  • Dr Andrew Hopkins is the founding CEO of Exscientia Ltd, a drug discovery platform that uses AI to accelerate new compound formulations. Andrew moved to Oxford relatively recently from the company’s original base in Dundee. He is passionate about the opportunities for the application of AI in pharmaceuticals and drug manufacturing.
  • Dan Sola is the founding CEO of Archangel Aerospace Ltd, based at Harwell, which works on unmanned space flight systems.
