By Khurram Jamil, Co-founder & President of strategic initiatives, Area9 Lyceum

With the availability of AI-powered Adaptive Learning, we can now rethink how we want to develop our organization. For the first time, we can use technology to upskill an entire group of people and have everyone receive the personal attention they need. The need for this technology has been further accelerated by the effects of COVID-19, especially in relation to China, where travel restrictions and closed borders have caused barriers relating to knowledge transfer across borders.

In this webinar, Khurram Jamil, Co-founder & President of Strategic Initiatives at Area9 Lyceum will introduce the concept of adaptive learning for workforces and explore how this technology for example can be used to ensure that workers build adequate product knowledge. Furthermore, Khurram will go through case examples of companies where the technology is applied, such as Audi and Lockheed Martin. Starting last year, companies with teams in China can use Area9’s technology thanks to local cloud hosting and support.

Join the webinar to explore how the technology will help ensure your learning organization is ready for the next decades.

Solving IP Problems Crossing Multiple International Borders Using Minimal Resources

Date: April 05, 2022

Time: 9:00-10:00 a.m. (DK)/3:00-4:00 p.m. (CN)

Event: Webinar


By Thomas L. Ewing, Senior IP Strategist at AWA Denmark A/S

From a commercial point of view, it is usually easy to decide how to handle the big IP cases, where a lot is at stake, and likewise for the little cases. But what about the “medium” cases, where the immediate financial risk might be low but where the negative long-term market signal for doing nothing might be high? This seminar attempts to offer a conceptual framework from a commercial perspective for solving such cases. The seminar will be illustrated with a case in point whose solution involved enforcement, or threatened enforcement, in China for the purpose of solving a commercial problem in the USA. Thus, the seminar will anchor its conceptual framework with a series of practical, low-cost, real-world actions.

Thomas is senior IP Strategist at AWA AB in Sweden. He holds several degrees, and he is in the final stages of completing his PhD in industrial management and economics. All his research has been focused on intellectual property.
