US Patent and Trademark Office takes on Artificial Intelligence

The US Patent Act, like many other legislations, limits patents to humans. However, with the rise of the AI, and recognizing the need to adapt, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) recently issued notices seeking public comments on intellectual property protection related to artificial intelligence. It is entitled, “Request for Comments on Intellectual Property Protection for Artificial Intelligence Innovation.” with the possibility for comments until January 10, 2020.
