The 16th JIPA IP Symposium Program
|[Theme]||Drastic Business Innovation! The 4th Industrial Revolution and Intellectual Property
- Let’s Think about the New Business and IP in the IoT, Big Data, and AI Era –
The world is entering into the era of Drastic Business Innovation brought about by the 4th Industrial Revolution. The Government of Japan is also trying to tackle a revolution in the industrial structure including the IP system through the means of planning Japan's strategy in the “New Industrial Structure Vision”. It is necessary for us to have a clear understanding how the industrial society should respond to this situation and what the future IP system should be.
In this symposium, we would like to perceive how the 4th Industrial Revolution will make progress and think about the future of business development, the IP system corresponding to it and the way the IP strategy in the industry society ought to be.
