As the intellectual property landscape evolves with the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the USPTO’s recent guidance on AI in patent practice signals a pivotal shift towards embracing these technologies.

The USPTO’s guidance emphasizes these key points: 

  1. The critical need for thorough review of prior art suggested by AI before including it in Invention Disclosure Statements (IDS) submissions, ensuring that the submission is not merely a bulk dump of AI-recommended patents;
  2. The necessity for human review of AI-generated outputs, which can vary from minimal to extensive oversight.
