AI, ML & Robotics

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robotics are three interconnected technologies destined to change the future. They inspire the brightest minds in tech to contribute to an exciting vision for tomorrow. Bringing that vision to fruition requires visionary ideas, which is why it's essential for companies in AI, ML, and robotics to employ strong IP protection. 

Legal protection allows you to maximize the value of your innovation, increase the impact of your business, retain ownership over your ideas, and connect with investors, businesses, and consumers from around the world. For over 50 years, Seed IP has worked with some of the leading names in technology, including Microsoft, Panasonic, Facebook, and Samsung. Yours could be next.

Great IP protection starts early. Whether you’re just developing an idea or building a prototype, with every brave step you take, you open yourself up to risk. But you do not want to worry about that, so let us handle it for you.

Among many other applications, we have protected the use of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Robotics to:

  • Analyze physiological images at a wide range of scales
  • Optimize vehicular operation
  • Make preliminary business judgments
  • Diagnose medical disorders
  • Train and operate automated conversational agents

Working on something even more niche? We’d love to hear about it. Get in touch for a bespoke conversation, with one of our specialists.
