ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE PATENTS ON THE RISE

Artificial intelligence is rapidly becoming ingrained in daily life. From Alexa® to Siri®, robotic appliances, satellites, search engines, and automobiles and airplanes AI is there. 

The number of artificial intelligence (AI) patent applications received annually by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) more than doubled from 2002 to 2018, according to a new report published 10/27/2020 by the USPTO, “Inventing AI: Tracing the diffusion of artificial intelligence with U.S. patents.” During those 16 years, annual AI patent applications grew from 30,000 in 2002 to more than 60,000 in 2018.

Accompanying the 100% increase of AI-related patent applications was unprecedented growth and broad diffusion of AI across technologies, inventor-patentees, organizations, and geography that attest to the growing importance of AI for all of those seeking intellectual property protection.
