May 20, AI in Government: AI Innovation at US Patent & Trademark Office, America’s Innovation Agency

This event qualifies for 1 CEUs

Special Featured Guest: Jerry Ma, Director of Emerging Technology at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO)


This month’s virtual presenter is Jerry Ma, Director of Emerging Technology at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO)! The USPTO is unique among federal agencies in its multifaceted involvement with the AI ecosystem. Consistent with its constitutional and statutory role, the Office fosters innovation in AI by the provision of strong intellectual property (IP) grants and the promulgation of sound IP policy. The Office also looks toward AI to improve operational efficiency and empower our highly-skilled Examining Corps. Finally, the Office contributes back to the AI community as one of the leading Open Data agencies, with hundreds of terabytes of scientific and technical data made freely available to researchers and technologists.


In this presentation, Jerry will survey recent AI developments at the Office, including patent classification, prior art search, image analysis, and the use of Office data in state-of-the-art AI research. Jerry will also touch on the promising future of AI at the agency and in the IP world at large.
