Comments submitted to the USPTO about AI provide a useful snapshot of the IP industry’s sentiment towards the technology, as Austin Kim, Chris McKenna and Shabbi Khan of Foley & Lardner explain.
With ever-increasing rates of proliferation in all facets of daily life, artificial intelligence (AI) has attracted the interest of many policymakers and researchers around the world.
In February 2019, the US launched a federal initiative titled “Artificial Intelligence for the American People” with the objective of developing and implementing strategies to accelerate AI-related innovation in the US.
With its focus being the promotion of the progress of science and useful arts, the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) was tasked with coming up with plans on aiding the growth and expansion of AI research and development.
