AI Inventorship on the Horizon: Part 2

October 29, 2021
Part 1 of this blog post series introduced DABUS, an artificial intelligence (AI) machine and its two AI-generated inventions. We looked at treatment of AI inventorship in the context of patent applications in various jurisdictions. We concluded the discussion by briefly introducing a recent Australian Federal Court decision.

In Part 2 of this blog post series, we analyze the Australian Federal Court’s judgment in more detail, and compare it to decisions reached by the United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office, the European Patent Office, and the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Finally, we will consider how a similar analysis might unfold in Canada.
