This presentation will delve into a practical example of a patent procedure associated to a specific quantum technology: quantum random number generator. We will explore the specifics of the technology and its applications, review previously existing approaches and define the inventive step, explore the phrasing of the claims, and revisit the prior patents from the freedom-to-operate point of view. The presentation will also discuss the various factors which influence the value of a patent for a transformative quantum technology, in a manner to guide entrepreneurs, investors and other decision-makers in strategizing to maximize the impact of their intellectual property.
Welcome & Opening Remarks
Tracey Forrest, Program Director, Transformative Quantum Technologies
