Patent and Trademark Office Seeks Info on AI Invention Patenting

Jeff Brody

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is asking the public to submit input regarding the patenting of artificial intelligence intellectual property. USPTO hopes to determine whether it requires more examination guidance to increase the reliability of AI invention patenting, the office said Tuesday in a Federal Register notice.

The request for comments features 12 questions on concerns such as the elements of an AI invention, factors that constitute an AI inventor and patent owner, existing laws and patent eligibility. Other queries include AI-unique art considerations and the need for new intellectual property protections.

Interested parties may submit responses through Oct. 11.
