Joint Inventorship: AI-Human Style
Briefly

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has published examination guidance on inventorship for AI-assisted inventions, stating that AI-developed inventions can be patentable if a human significantly contributes to the invention.
The USPTO believes that AI-developed inventions are patentable so long as a human satisfies the joint-inventorship standard of "significantly contributing to the invention."
The USPTO's approach allows for both human and machine intelligence to intersect in the creative process, providing flexibility while still recognizing the importance of human contributions. However, there is a need to monitor the effects of the policy to ensure it does not limit the autonomy of AI to formulate inventive concepts in the future.
But, we should continue monitoring the effects of the policy to ensure it does not unduly constrain AI's eventual capacity to autonomously formulate inventive concepts. But for now, the USPTO's basic framework reasonably balances competing interests.
