BYND Cannasoft Subsidiary Zigi Carmel Initiatives & Investments LTD. received a positive opinion from the examiner of the PCT for its method that enables its AI-based device to identify a level of satisfaction according to parameters received from the device sensors
ASHKELON, Israel and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 25, 2023 — BYND Cannasoft Enterprises Inc. (Nasdaq: BCAN) (CSE: BYND) (“BYND Cannasoft” or the “Company”) announced today it has received a positive opinion from the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) for its Artificial Intelligence (AI) Sex Tech-based Female Treatment Device. Along with its EZ-G device, the company plans to develop its groundbreaking AI-based adult device that incorporates machine learning algorithms based on user response to stimulation. The device will provide users with a personalized experience that meets various needs related to sexual pleasure, pain management, and medical conditions. BYND Cannasoft plans to move quickly toward monetizing any patents awarded to take advantage of the burgeoning trend in the global AI market, which is estimated to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 39.4 percent to reach USD 422.37 billion by 2028.i
The Smart Adult Device utilizes one or more sensors to monitor the user’s response to stimulation and overall state. By collecting data from its sensors, the device will adjust stimulation patterns and determine the lubricant dispensing rate, thereby facilitating sexual climax. User data is stored and analyzed to improve the device’s operation to the user’s preference.
To protect this innovative technology, Zigi Carmel Initiatives & Investments LTD, a subsidiary of BYND Cannasoft, has filed a US Provisional Patent Application and a full-scale PCT application covering the monitoring and controlling aspects of the adult device. The PCT application covers the device’s structure, moving/vibrating elements, sensors (such as pressure, temperature, conductivity, and heart rate sensors), and a controller that receives sensor data and user preferences to determine operation.
The device also includes a communication component that provides a simple user interface, gathering information and creating custom programs according to the collected data from the sensors and uploading the data to the cloud.
The International Search Report and Written Opinion (ISR&WO) issued by the Israeli patent office acting as International Search and Examination Authority indicates the allowability of claims relating to certain features of the device. The allowable features relate to determining the device’s location within a body cavity, determining data on body fluids and lubricant, obtaining heart rate data by the device, adjusting device operation to different lubricant and active materials, variation of device operation pattern to selected operation time and user satisfaction, and determining the level of user satisfaction based on physiological parameters.
Yftah Ben Yaackov, CEO and Director of BYND Cannasoft said, “BYND Cannasoft LTD is committed to bringing this innovative technology to market and providing a unique, personalized user experience. We will continue to pursue patent protection for additional features of the device and look forward to bringing this groundbreaking product to consumers. Artificial Intelligence is having a significant impact on the sextech industry. With AI, sextech companies can create innovative devices and services that are more personalized, responsive, and user-friendly. AI-powered sex toys have the potential to be one of the most popular submarkets since users can adjust their stimulation patterns based on feedback and preferences, providing a more customized and satisfying experience. We plan to keep our shareholders updated with benchmarks and milestones on the status of our patent applications and the monetization of our AI Sex Tech based Female Treatment Device.”
Should BYND Cannasoft receive a patent from the PCT, it can benefit in several ways:
- Global Protection: A PCT patent application protects in all PCT member countries. This makes it easier and more cost-effective for a company to obtain patent protection in multiple countries.
- Time to Decide: The PCT process provides a company additional time to decide in which countries to pursue patent protection. The company has up to 30 months from the priority date to file national patent applications in individual countries.
- Enhanced Patentability: The PCT process can provide additional information on the invention’s patentability through the International Search Report and Written Opinion. This information can help the company determine the potential scope of protection for its invention.
- Licensing Opportunities: A PCT patent application can be licensed to other companies, generating revenue through royalties. Additionally, the patent can increase the value of the company.
