  • When AI Creates AI — Who Owns the Rights? | Davis Wright Tremaine LLP – JD Supra

    More problematic, however, is the treatment of inventions discovered either wholly or in part by the artificial intelligence. Since inventorship resides only in humans, the USPTO is ill equipped to handle the ramifications when an AI discovers a new malaria drug or designs a new, easier-to-handle container.

    While attributing inventorship of an AI-generated invention to the AI’s human creator may seem like a reasonable solution, in some cases the human’s actions and the realization of the invention might be so far separated in time and intervening events, and proximate cause questions, that it can be hard to square naming the human as an inventor.
