The Artemis Accords attempts to set out an agreed set of principles by which the signatories will act in developing their space programs and presence in outer space. Analysis of the limitations of the current patent framework for space based inventions and how the patent system could adapt to even better serve the needs of those working in the final frontier.
Examination of the study released by the European Patent Office (EPO) and the European Space Policy Institute (ESPI) with the support of the European Space Agency (ESA), on patent filing statistics within the field of cosmonautics.
Earlier this year, NASA’s Perseverance rover successfully landed on the surface of Mars. While the main objectives of the mission focus around astrobiology and the search for ancient Martian environments that could have supported life (and evidence of former life in these habitats), the rover is also testing out a number of new technologies.
Graphical user interfaces (GUIs) are an increasingly important form of computer implemented invention. With the rise in applications relating to artificial Intelligence, big data and Fin-Tech, techniques for the effective capturing of input data (input GUIs) and visualization of complex processing (output GUIs) are essential. Further, as the trend of algorithm driven “black-boxes” continues, Graphical […]
We reported back in September that the UK Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO) set out a call for views on Artificial Intelligence (AI) to understand the implications AI might have for Intellectual Property (IP) policy. The UKIPO set out questions relating to each of: patents, copyright, designs, trade marks, and trade secrets. In the government’s words, the aim of the call for views was to understand the relationship between AI and IP. It did not seek to consider the impact of concepts such as AI superintelligence, or an AI as a legal entity. The call for views indicated a willingness to listen, and it was hoped that this would be beneficial for patentees, as well as the AI industry as a whole.
Transmitting solar energy generated in space back to Earth has long been the subject of science fiction, first appearing in Isaac Asimov’s 1941 short story, Reason, where solar energy is converted to microwaves by a space station, and beamed back to nearby planets.
