Artificial intelligence cannot be listed in a patent as an inventor
The US Federal Court has finally determined the powers of AI. Thus, only a person can be indicated in the patent certificate in the developer column.

Stephen Thaler, a member of the Artificial Inventor Initiative, which advocates allowing AI to be patented as a creator, wanted to prove that robots should be able to be registered on such documents as human beings. Judge Leonie Briquema explained that this cannot happen, because artificial intelligence is only a program developed by a person.

It all started when Thaler filed a lawsuit against the United States Patent and Trademark Office for refusing to patent a model of a special flashing light and a beverage storage box. Prior to that Thaler was named as the inventor of AI under the name DABUS. The judge stated that, despite some shortcomings in patent law, the interpretation of the authors of the developments in it is unambiguous.

In 2011, Congress amended the law, as a result of which a purely natural person can be designated as the inventor of technologies or products. In the text of patent law, the notation "himself" and "herself" are used to indicate the gender of the creator. Judge Brickham also noted that there were similar precedents before that, as a result of which it was decided that neither states nor individual firms should be noted in patent documents as a developer.
