Date : Wednesday, 24 June 2020
Place : Zoom Online Meeting
Speaker : Assist. Prof. Tetsuhiro MORIYAMA (Institute of Mathematics for Industry, Kyushu University)
Title :  
 Introduction to intellectual property for mathematicians
Abstract :
Typical examples of patentable inventions are materials or devices, or their manufacturing methods. Inventions of computer simulation (non-manufacturing methods) or computer programs may be patentable too. Another examples of intellectual property are copyrights of, for example, computer programs. Mathematical researchers sometimes should be careful about obtaining/utilizing patent rights. For example, mathematical formula or algorithm itself is not patentable (according to Japanese patent law), however, a computer program, in which such a formula or algorithm is implemented, may be patentable.
In this colloquium, without requiring prior knowledge, basics of intellectual property and related topics (that mathematical researchers might be involved in) will be introduced.
Technology transfer activities of universities will be outlined, if we have time.
