Apart from science and technology, AI is actively getting adopted in finance, trade and commerce, social sciences etc. But the acceptability of digital technology-based transformation is relatively low in legal domain. Though most of the major global corporation are hugely investing in intellectual property development and creating a healthy portfolio of patents, trademarks, copyrights, designs and trade secrets; management of such portfolio is either manual or simple push-pull based web repository. With huge changes in technology domains and impact on business line because of such changes, the Intellectual Property (IP) portfolio structure of an organization demands to be dynamic.
