Whether it is true or not, IP is often characterized as a cost, making it a prime target for cost-cutting measures during times of shrinking budgets. Add to this that surveys show that over half of IP department heads are anticipating severe budget cuts for 2022 and getting this budget cycle right could not be more important for the future and direction of innovative companies.
Unfortunately, artificial intelligence has been so over-hyped, IP professionals are often skeptical of the benefits the technology can provide. Indeed, over-promising what AI tools can provide and making unrealistic guarantees that cause IP leaders to fear AI solutions will only add to the bottom line. But it does not need to be that way.
Join Gene Quinn, President & CEO of IPWatchdog, Inc., on Tuesday, October 27, at 11 AM ET, for a conversation about how savvy service providers, and IP leaders, are using AI as a tool that cuts costs by analyzing, identifying, and reducing unnecessary spend, and allowing management to make better-informed IP decisions that lead to streamlined processes, savings, and overall optimized IP department. Joining Gene will be John D’Antico, former Chief IP Counsel of ShuffleMaster; Chief Patent Counsel and Director of Cost Management at Questel, along with Eric Moran, U.S. Subject Matter Experts’ Manager for Questel.
