The value of automation beckons in every corner, and the invention world is no exception.
Tools like ChatGPT and Bard promise to simplify the patent process, slashing costs and saving time. However, when it comes to safeguarding your intellectual property, these AI assistants can be a risky bet. While they may have their uses for initial research or brainstorming, relying solely on AI for your patent application is like playing roulette with your innovation's future.
It is crucial to understand that AI cannot, and should not, be your sole patent champion. Whilst there are a range of AI-based Large Language Models (LLMs) which can recognise and generate text in response to user input and thus can be used for assisting with research or initial brainstorming, when it comes to navigating the intricate jungle of patent law, they are woefully inadequate.
