“Clare made an engaging and energetic presentation on AI innovation at our conference on “Patenting Artificial Intelligence” in Munich on 30 May 2018, setting the tone for the day and being a major contributor to the very positive feedback we received for the event. For me as an organiser, it was a real pleasure to work with Clare as she translated perfectly the aims we had for the conference through the structure, content and enthusiasm of her presentation. She also convened important messages through her participation as a panellist in the panel discussion on the “Challenges of drafting applications for AI-related inventions”.
