Take a closer look at trade secret protection for AI inventions (2/2)

Earlier, we wrote that there is a tension between filing for patent protection versus protecting subject matter as a trade secret.

George Summerfield, Gina A. Johnson and Jason R. Freeck take a closer look at protection in the US for innovation related to artificial intelligence by trade secret.

In the first part of their contribution, they discussed the history of trade secret protection in the United States and compares patents and trade secrets. The second part takes a closer look at trade secret protection as an alternative to patent protection for artificial intelligence inventions.
