The aim is for aws experts to pass on the necessary know-how to local companies from the software and hardware industry in order to identify the intellectual property that they have created through their product development as such and to protect it from plagiarism, to defend against illegal imitators if necessary, and to find the best possible means of commercial exploitation. In addition, you will receive advice on how to contractually secure your intellectual property rights to AI training data.
