Artificial Intelligence Patent WIPO Report

Artificial Intelligence Patent WIPO Report

The patenting effect of artificial intelligence was examined in the WIPO Report

In the first study on artificial intelligence, the World Intellectual Property Organization today reported a significant growth in patenting activities in recent times. During a press briefing yesterday, WIPO Director General Francis Gurry said that WIPO hopes to initiate a discussion on the matter this year between its member states. He said that Artificial intelligence a game-changer as in many other fields and the United States and China are the major patent offices.

Big Firms in Artificial Intelligence Patents

The IBM and Microsoft firms in the United States are pioneers in patenting innovations related to artificial intelligence and China has tremendous influence in scientific publications. In its first chapter in the new line "WIPO Innovation Trends", WIPO selected artificial intelligence. In the meeting of 30 January, Gurry said that WIPO wanted to start up a discussion with the Member States on artificial intelligence (Artificial Intelligence) without' alarming the false idea that we will lay down laws and patents associated with Artificial Intelligence have significantly increased. And he continued; In addition to the data being very global and not just regional, the international community needs to speak seriously about this.

The report notes that patents related to Artificial Intelligence have risen dramatically since 2013, with companies comprising 26 out of the top 30 applications for Artificial Intelligence patents and a third of all reported machine translation innovations.

In this article, Artificial Intelligence technologies are categorized into three categories: technological applications, organizational applications, and their penetration across trade and industry. Applications are networks, entertainment, telecommunications, banking and finance, life and medical science, transportation, agricultural and industrial activities.

The patenting activity around Artificial Intelligence-related applications arbitrates a dispute which challenges the relevance to the new technological foundations of the new economy of the conventional intellectual property structures that originated from the industrial revolution. The data indicate that the traditional IP and patent systems are not out of fashion, he added.

According to Gurry the Artificial Intelligence is about technology and algorithms, and most of their patenting focuses on algorithms that emphasize the importance of data issues such as reliability, fairness, competition law, and even property regulation.

Gurry said that patent office view Artificial Intelligence patent applications like any other computer-aided invention has been treated since Artificial Intelligence and the technological development of Artificial Intelligence applications.

The IBM and Microsoft struggling toward the top

For the top 10 patent applicants; There are IBM (8290 inventions) Microsoft (5930) has portfolios spanning a variety of Artificial Intelligence techniques, applications, and areas for both companies. The teams will be followed up by Toshiba, Dell, IBM (DeepMind, Waymo, X) and Fujitsu, Panasonic, Canon, and Alphabet. As for investments and procurements, Google ranks first in Artificial Intelligence firms. Throughout the purchase phase, Apple and Microsoft were both active.

Some renowned firms, however, who are not among the world's top Artificial Intelligence patent players are pioneers in some industries, such as Facebook and Tencent, according to the research in social networks.

The top ten filing offices are the USA, China, Japan, the WIPO, South Korea, Germany, Canada, Australia, and India. WIPO is the first filing department in Europe.

The China

The report says that "machine learning is the fastest-growing technology in deep learning, represented by 89 percent of filings which refer to this Artificial Intelligence technique, and 40 percent of all the Artificial Intelligence patents," and that computer vision is the key functional application listed in patents from top firms. It notes that deep learning is a rapidly growing technique for Artificial Intelligence. According to the reports, the Chinese Academy of science has the largest patent portfolio covering deep learning techniques. It adds that Chinese universities have received most key portfolios of deep learning.


Security and Social

The report says that automakers or suppliers from Asia or Europe are the largest portfolios in the transport sector, but Alphabet and IBM also have large portfolios that refer to applications related to the transport industry. Toyota is a leading motor vehicle designer and aircraft identification, road or traffic engineering, and Boeing is the major patent player in the field of airspace and aviation. Multinationals already involved in the field of medical technology (Siemens, Philips, and Samsung) are the main portfolios for health and medical sciences.

Microsoft leads authentication, Samsung authenticates first, and IBM leads cybersecurity, identification, and tracking. IBM and Microsoft lead business applications, but Google and Verizon, together with Toshiba and Alibaba, also have a heavy patenting presence in this market, with all patents primarily related to e-commerce. Social network patents also belong to Facebook, Verizon, and Tencent, and the "fairly big" Artificial Intelligence-related patent portfolios are available in electronic entertainment firms like Sony, Microsoft, and Disney.

According to Gurry, the prominence of internet giants in the United States and China, with 1,3 billion people in China, for example, could be partly due to their large domestic data pools. He said that the "hegemony" of the English language might have favored internet giants, and linguistic and cultural disparities in Europe may not automatically support the creation of large data pools.

China at the top of Scientific patents

In addition, the study reviewed scientific publications to give a clearer view of developments in Artificial Intelligence. The top ten colleges and public research organizations: Chinese Academy of Sciences, Tsinghua University, Chinese Minister of Education, Huazhong Southeast University, Harbin Institute of Technology and Six American universities are all Chinese: Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Zhejiang University, Beihang University, Southeast University, and Six American Colleges.

The WIPO report even researched academic articles to gage the developments of artificial intelligence more accurately. There are ten top university research institutions producing a variety of Artificial Intelligence scientific journals in China: Chinese Science Academy, Tsinghua University, China Education Ministry, Harbin Institute of Technology, Zhejiang University, Beihang University, Southeast University, Huazhong Science and Technology University and Wuhan University. The twenty biggest institutions publishing academic artificial intelligence papers include six American Universities, two in Singapore, one in Japan and one in France.
