The Role of Trade Secret Protection for AI Related Data, Technology & Innovation (Replay)

April 25 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm EDT


If you were unable to join us in person at IPWatchdog Studios for Artificial Intelligence Masters™ 2024, a part of the IPWatchdog Masters™ series, register now to watch the broadcast of The Role of Trade Secret Protection for AI Related Data, Technology & Innovation panel. This panel was recorded on March 5, 2024.

U.S. patent laws do not currently offer protection for AI-generated inventions where AI is the only named inventor. But that doesn’t mean there is no IP protection available for AI generated data, technologies or innovation. If valuable, AI-generated data, information, and innovation can meet the criteria for trade secret protection. And where AI innovation is unlikely to be reverse-engineered, trade secret protection should be considered and may be particularly valuable.

But at a time when AI generated information and innovation is becoming far more valuable as the technology matures, the FTC has done away with non-compete agreements. So, how can and should companies go about protecting AI generated data, technology and innovation in a world without non-compete agreements, and in a world where patent and copyright protection is not available?

This panel will discuss:

(1) The likely consequences of the FTC rule to do away with non-competes and whether and how non-disclosure agreements can and should be used by employers.

(2) How to create and implement a trade secret protection regime aimed specifically at protecting AI itself, as well as the output of AI.

(3) Best practices for identifying, cataloging and monitoring trade secrets in a hyperconnected world that is increasingly built on and reliant upon AI.
