So, as AI-based systems rather than humans will increasingly invent stuff, who gets credited with the invention? An interesting, complex legal and philosophical question that is already being discussed:


In my view what AI creates should be free for all humans to use, i.e. not be protected at all.

It will get worked out in the courts for us. I can see an argument that the AI algorithms invented by one person might have distinct differences from another person’s or company’s AI algorithms and therefore the person developing the algorithm could claim it’s their software which is responsible for producing the “product” therefore they have more claim to it than anyone else. It’s just speculation at this point unless we think AI’s will be recognized as having personhood under the law.....and why not, corporations do.

Let's face it.
Inventions of today were based on the dead geniuses of days long gone.
Son of Daedalus who flew to near to the sun on the wings of feathers and wax should be credited for flight not the Wright brothers.
But who are we kidding. Today thanks to the internet, hundreds of thousand maybe millions will have input enough information to
data bases world wide to help bring about an extraordinary invention by one living human being tomorrow that knew enough to have
AI mix the right ingredients together for him. In the case of AI, all the credit goes to the person who baked the cake not the the one
who wrote the recipe.
nuff said.
