  • Artificial Intelligence and Intellectual Property: AI-Driven Drug Discovery and the Challenges It Poses  to the Canadian Patent System (starts on p. 9): "Artificial Intelligence is emerging as a general-purpose technology with widespread applications. In particular, AI driven drug discovery is becoming increasingly prevalent as high costs and attrition rates associated with developing new drugs pose significant challenges to the biotech and pharmaceutical industries. Brand-name pharma companies have adopted machine learning platforms for target identification and lead molecule development to aid in novel drug design. The rapid development of these AI-based solutions, however, raises fundamental intellectual property questions and may require a re-evaluation of Canada’s current patent system.
