Patenting inventions created using an AI system

10 July 2020

This article first appeared in the CIPA Journal, July-August 2020.

This CIPA paper discusses the patenting of inventions created using an artificial intelligence (AI) system, including whether patent rights should be available for inventions which represent new, non-obvious technical developments, regardless of how they were created (with or without an AI system), or whether patent protection should be limited to inventions having a human contribution – in effect, retaining current inventorship requirements, but accepting that an invention created using AI is patentable as long as there is a genuine human contribution. You can download this interesting paper below. It was written by Rachel Free of CMS together with other members of the CIPA computer technology committee.
