Machine learning controlling the skies – Decision T0270/20 of the Technical Board of Appeal (EP Application 17382762.7 – The Boeing Company – 19 June 2023)

Decision T0270/20 relates to an appeal against the (EPO) Examining Division’s decision to refuse European patent application 17382762.7 directed to the calculation and execution of an aircraft flight plan using machine learning techniques. The Examining Division had taken a predominantly negative view of the application, arguing that the subject matter of the claims was not technical, and therefore not inventive (lack of Inventive Step under Article 56 EPC), or if technical, not adequately disclosed (insufficiency under Article 83 EPC). The Appeal Board took the opposite view, arguing that the Examining Division had erred and ordering the case to be remitted back for further examination.

The future of glucose monitoring

The non-invasive glucose monitoring device market is anticipated to progress substantially over the coming years. Industry expansion is likely to be propelled by the ever increasing prevalence of diabetes in modern society. According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), around 540 million adults (20-79 years) have diabetes, with almost half unaware that they have the condition. The IDF Diabetes Atlas projects the number of people living with diabetes will rise to 643 million by 2030 and to 783 million by 2045. Those who are diagnosed are required to frequently monitor their blood glucose levels to ensure they are at a safe level.

Quantum Supremacy: The Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum Era and Beyond

As established in our previous quantum computing blog here, there is undoubtedly still a substantial amount of research and investment required to realise the full potential of quantum computing. At present, researchers have their sights set on achieving so-called ‘quantum supremacy’: the point at which quantum computers can solve a problem that no classical computer could feasibly solve.
