Julian Nolan, CEO of Iprova, stated, “The AI-Assisted Invention was a great success, and we were delighted to partner with Microsoft for this summit. AI is revolutionising the way we invent, and this event is an opportunity to delve deep into the intersection of technology and intellectual property, sharing our vision for the future of innovation. By end 2025, its our views that over 50% of all inventions will be created with the help of AI.  We expect digital technologies to have the same impact on R&D that they have already had on marketing by end of 2027 – a complete transformation is coming, not just in the way inventions are created but also in the way they are evaluated and integrated into business workflows.”
