Although Artificial Intelligence can be largely used by inventors to boost their inventive skills, this point is often overlooked because people frequently think of AI as something that is replacing human inventors. There are countless examples of jobs actually being eliminated by technology, so this fear is understandable, to a point. But, AI can do so much in helping people solve the world’s most difficult problems, without actually replacing the human factor.
In this four-part series, we’ll look at AI and discuss the patentability in this area. Today, Cynthia Gilbert, a software patent attorney, computer scientist, and one of the founding partners at Blueshift IP – a U.S. patent law firm specializing in software patents – is focusing on how artificial intelligence is creating super inventors and the impact of that on patent law.
Listen to Episode 01 of The Software Patent Podcast – Deep Dive Series on Artificial Intelligence, to learn more about how AI is allowing inventors to be even more creative and solve more problems in less time than before.
In this episode, you will learn:
- The popular debate whether AI helps versus replaces the human inventors and who’s right. (01:21)
- How AI has helped astronomers to solve problems more easily and become better at their jobs. (02:18)
- The advantages of using AI in a repetitive process of generating, testing, and evaluating prototypes. (02:47)
- What the patent law requires of an inventor, and how AI influences the legislation changes. (04:23)
