Patentability of mathematical methods

US Patent Attorney Gabriela Tomescu and European Patent Attorney Rut Herbjørnsen come together to lecture on patentability in USPTO and EPO for a half day seminar in May.

In this seminar, we discuss patentability of mathematical methods in EPO and USPTO in view of recent developments in practice. Gabriela Tomescu has extensive experience with US Patent practice, including patentability, and Rut Herbjørnsen is a European and Swedish Patent Attorney, specializing in patentability of computer implemented inventions.


Mathematical methods is one of the exceptions from patentability. With the development of AI and machine learning, this exception is becoming increasingly important.
We discuss the practice as recently clarified by the EPO and also the Enlarged Board’s decision G1/19 regarding the technical character of simulations, which was recently published.
With regard to the US, we will discuss the patentability of abstract ideas, with an emphasis on mathematical methods, the recently amended USPTO guidelines, as well as recent court decisions.
