Talking patents: A lecture series by Swapna Sundar from October 23-24, 2018

What are smart cities? Who builds them and who benefits from them? Why do we need Aadhaar, or do we need it at all? How and where is the data collected, stored and utilised? What is metadata and how can we use it to prevent terror attacks? What is intellectual property? What is the significance of patents, trademarks and copyrights? These are a few of the topics that Swapna Sundar, a lawyer-turned-entrepreneur, covered during her lectures at the Asian College of Journalism. As the head of IP DOME Strategy Advisors, Sundar advises companies, research institutions and individuals on the best ways to take their inventions to the market.
