Joseph J. Holovachuk Quoted in Wired Article, 'Despite Pledging Openness, Companies Rush to Patent AI Tech'

Joseph J. Holovachuk, a registered patent attorney and associate in the Intellectual Property Department of Pepper Hamilton, was quoted in the July 31, 2018 Wired article, "Despite Pledging Openness, Companies Rush to Patent AI Tech."

Big changes in what kinds of AI ideas can be patented seem unlikely, though. "The companies filing a lot of applications in this space are a big portion of the economy," says Joe Holovachuk, a patent attorney with the firm Pepper Hamilton. That means they can pay for lobbyists and lawyers to push lawmakers or courts to support their favored approach—which seems to be making all kinds of AI techniques broadly patentable.
