Unlocking AI Potential in IP Law: Navigating Risks and Ensuring Security

In the rapidly evolving landscape of Intellectual Property (IP) law, the adoption of cutting-edge technologies has been a historical challenge for practitioners. Attorneys, by nature, are risk mitigators - a stance that has served them well. However, the emergence of Generative AI (GenAI) is rewriting the rules of the game, demanding a proactive approach. The legal profession, particularly in IP law firms, stands at the threshold of a transformative evolution, compelling the recognition of technology mastery as a strategic priority for the most prominent firms. Generative AI introduces distinctive challenges, and past incidents that have sowed seeds of mistrust.

At davinci, we champion the cause of clarity by delineating these challenges and presenting transparent mitigation measures. Our commitment lies in aiding clients to embrace and trust the technology shaping the future of their IP and patent prosecution practices.

Ensuring the Highest Level of Security and Confidentiality

In the realm of patent law, maintaining secrecy is non-negotiable, especially before filing a patent application. Davinci acknowledges the sensitivity of client information and addresses this concern with the highest level of security and confidentiality.

Physical Safety of Data: While the cloud adoption within the legal industry has surged, concerns persist regarding the security of client data. At davinci, we've partnered with Microsoft Azure, the globally trusted cloud provider for IP law firms, ensuring the utmost security for our clients.

Data Location: Recognizing the regulatory nuances in different industries, davinci allows clients to choose where their data is stored—either in the USA or in Europe, providing flexibility and compliance with export control regulations.

Security Standards: The risks associated with the software itself, including unauthorized access, are meticulously addressed by davinci. We adhere to industry frameworks such as NIST 800-53 and NIST Cybersecurity Framework, holding certifications like SOC2 Type 2 and ISO 27001 to guarantee the highest level of security.

Confidentiality Assurance: By design, davinci prioritize the confidentiality of client data, implementing encryption at rest and in transit, strict access control management, stringent segregation rules, 0 data retention API post processing, aligning with the strictest compliance norms.

Data Usage: davinci do not use any of the client data, additional input or interaction with the draft for training purpose.

Building Trust in AI Patent Copilot

The risks associated with AI hallucination, predictability, and the potential over-reliance on AI by attorneys are valid concerns. We acknowledge these challenges and actively work towards building trust.

Mitigating Risks of AI Hallucination is one of our priorities.

AI models have rapidly advanced in minimizing hallucinations, with OpenAI's most utilized model seeing a dramatic decrease from 30% to just 3% within a year. Leveraging the appropriate models is a crucial component of our success strategy.

Leveraging advanced adversarial robustness techniques, davinci minimizes inaccuracies and enhances the reliability of AI-generated outputs.

Another focus at davinci is balancing the Human factor with AI assisted review. Whatever the reason (inattention, tiredness, lack of understanding of a field, lack of professionalism), the risk of over-reliance demand a vigilant and proactive approach. davinci combines several technologies to facilitate the identification of the support of the claims, the profanity, to maintain the consistency of the figures, drawings, and references.

Mitigating Exogenous Risks and Navigating Regulatory Landscapes

Beyond internal risks, there are ethical and regulatory considerations surrounding generative AI. At davinci are attentive to these concerns:

Training AI models with legally protected content has led to infringement lawsuits. Our commitment is to develop and maintain data practices that encourage ethical behaviors among all participants.

As the regulatory landscape evolves, davinci ensures strict adherence to emerging guidelines. In the European Union, the AI Act's framework for regulating high-risk AI applications is embraced, while in the United States, compliance with President Joe Biden's executive order underscores our commitment to a trustworthy AI platform.

In conclusion, davinci is committed to providing a trustworthy AI Patent Copilot that aligns with security, confidentiality, ethical guidelines and regulatory frameworks. Our dedication to the highest data practices is reinforced by collaboration with third-party experts affiliated with major US and European law firms. As regulatory landscapes continue to evolve, davinci remains adaptable and committed to compliance, ensuring our platform remains a trusted choice for patent professionals.
