The Alice/Mayo framework for determining patent eligibility has made it much more difficult to obtain patents in a variety of technology fields, but until recently the futuristic area of artificial intelligence (AI) related innovation was largely spared from dealing with the most difficult of these rejections. Today, however, patent eligibility rejections for inventions claiming advances directed to AI are as common as §101 rejections of business method applications.

Listen as Gene Quinn, patent attorney and founder of IPWatchdog.com, joined by attorneys with Kilpatrick Townsend Kate Gaudry, PhD, and Samuel Hayim, discuss patent eligibility, artificial intelligence, why a decision in Electric Power Group is being used by patent examiners to reject AI patent claims and how patent practitioners can attempt to respond to these patent eligibility rejections.
