In a previous post, the question of legal changes necessary for artificial intelligence (AI) to invent was discussed. But what about practical changes? How will AI change inventing in a world in which its inventions are granted patent protection?

It has been obvious for a while now that artificial intelligence is not only going to assist inventors with more robust research and analysis tools, but will soon be inventing on a large scale itself. However, currently patent law does not recognize non-humans as inventors. This will slow down innovation and is an ultimately futile task. Therefore, the law should be changed to allow AI to be recognized as an inventor.

John Cronin, Managing Director and Chairman, and Jacob Rosen, Chief Executive Officer and Matt Osman, Chief Technology Officer of Legit are co-authors of "Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Invention Disclosures". Intro: Artificial Intelligence (AI), when implemented correctly, uses humans’ biggest weakness to its advantage: the management and analysis of huge quantities of data. Confronted with several million documents all containing different information, a legal practitioner's first goal will be to reduce that to a reasonable level. That is often what previous workflow technology has been previously used for, particularly in the legal realm. Document management systems filter by date, author and keywords, RSS feeds show only news stories pertaining to an attorney’s current cases and even the “find” function on PDFs documents help you ignore most of the target document. The performance of these tools does not improve when the amount of data it is tasked with handling increases, in fact in most cases it declines.

Artificial Intelligence is no longer the stuff of science fiction. It's being used in a wide variety of industries to drive innovation and efficiency. In fact, Microsoft has just identified AI as a top priority and expects it to drive business in the future. In the world of Prior Art Searching, the industry is just beginning to move past keyword searching and semantic processing tools. Here at ipCG we recently began utilizing AI to improve the quality and relevance of search results that support FTO Opinions and Market Clearance Reports.
