ASEAN: Singapore to introduce accelerated examination for AI-related patent filings

On 26 April 2019, the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) announced to offer an accelerated examination track for patent applications related to "artificial intelligence" (AI). According to IPOS, applications based on these technologies will be examined in only six months compared to an average of two years for other technical fields. Examples of technical fields related to "artificial intelligence" are image recognition, speech and voice recognition, natural language processing and autonomous systems. Already since April 2018, IPOS has been offering a similar accelerated examination track for filings in the field of "financial technology" (FinTech).

For further information, please refer to an IPOS press release and an article in The Straits Times of 26 April 2019.
