In recent years, especially since the introduction of ChatGPT by OpenAI, artificial intelligence (AI) has demonstrated significant practical results, leading to the development of new products and services adopted across various industries at a rapid pace. AI technology has revolutionized automation by enabling the handling of complex and costly processes that were previously beyond the capabilities of computers. Customer service, supply chain management, and numerous other tasks traditionally done manually are now being automated with the help of AI. Additionally, AI-powered products and services have become more accurate and efficient, making them highly attractive to businesses seeking improved performance.
While much attention has been focused on large language models (LLMs) and their ability to provide natural language responses to queries, AI also facilitates innovation in diverse fields like pharmaceuticals, robotics, and autonomous vehicles. The use of AI to turbocharge innovation carries significant potential implications for the patent system.
