My name is Brian Higgins. I live in Maryland and work in Washington, DC. My involvement in AI technologies goes back over a decade and includes working with exceptional technologists and their natural language processing, predictive analytics, digital conversational assistants, and affective computing (emotional AI) inventions.
After several years working as an engineer, I am now a Partner at Blank Rome LLP, where I apply my engineering and law knowledge to help clients maximize business valuation through the strategic use of intellectual property rights. Most of my daily work, when I am not researching and writing about AI, involves obtaining and/or enforcing patents, copyrights, and trademarks for my life sciences, automotive, electronics, and consumer products industry clients.
