Patenting of inventions created by artificial intelligence – a South African perspective
October 21, 2021
Online event hosted by Licensing Society of South Africa
By Pieter Visagie, Partner at Adams & Adams
The South African Patent Office was recently the first in the world to grant a patent for an invention purportedly created by an artificial intelligence, on an application naming the artificial intelligence as inventor. We examine the basis of this grant from the Patent Officer’s perspective and consider the surrounding substantive questions that remain.
