Technology Convergence: What is your global IP strategy to protect and monetize your IP assets? • Palo Alto, CA • May 2

Guest Speaker

High-tech and Internet-based businesses around the world compete to create new (and often disruptive) technologies, products and services. Many of these innovations result from technology convergence—where previously unrelated technologies are combined into a new product or service. An example of technology convergence is the self-driving vehicle, which combines automobile technology with GPS tracking, machine learning, cloud and mapping technologies, computer vision and data analysis, among others. Through a long history of innovation and commitment to R&D and the securing of patented inventions, many Japanese companies are well-positioned to compete globally in this environment. For such organizations, the key challenge may be formulating a comprehensive IP strategy to maximize the value of their patents and other IP assets.

Hear our speakers explore the topics of technology convergence and IP monetization through case studies involving Digital Health, Self-Driving Vehicles and other products in the Internet of Things space. Don’t miss the chance to explore strategies for your organization to create value from its IP.

The Next Generation Information Analysis Space (NGIAS) has invited experts in various industries to share their experience of information analysis and examples of its use to promote the exchange of ideas and perspectives among people from different fields and business sectors.

Dates & Time: Nov.9 (Thu) from 11:15 to 19:45 and Nov.10 (Fri) from 10:00 to 18:15
