UK’s Highest Court Rules Against Registering AI Systems As Patent ‘Inventors’

UK's Highest Court , Rules Against Registering , AI Systems As Patent 'Inventors'.

On December 20, Britain's Supreme Court ruled that an artificial intelligence system cannot be registered as the inventor of a patent.

.

Fox News reports that the decision essentially denies machines equal status as humans.

.

According to the U.K.'s highest court, "an inventor must be a person" in order to apply for a patent under the current laws.

The decision ends American technologist Stephen Thaler's grueling legal battle in the U.K. to get his AI registered as the inventor of two patents.

The decision ends American technologist Stephen Thaler's grueling legal battle in the U.K. to get his AI registered as the inventor of two patents.

His AI system, named DABUS, created a food and drink container and a light beacon.

Thaler believes that he is entitled to rights over the AI's inventions.

.

Fox News reports that similar applications by Thaler have also been rejected by tribunals in the United States and the European Union.

According to the U.K. Supreme Court, DABUS is , "not a person, let alone a natural person and it did not devise any relevant invention.".

According to legal experts, the case highlights U.K. law's inability to keep up with technology.

.

As AI systems continue to advance in sophistication and capability, there is no denying their ability to generate new and non-obvious products and processes with minimal, or perhaps even without any, ongoing human input.

Change may be on the horizon, but it will most likely come from the policymakers, rather than the judges.

Credit Card Delinquencies Are on the Rise

Credit Card Delinquencies , Are on the Rise. New York Federal Reserve data that was published on May 15 shows that credit card delinquencies kept rising from January to March, Fox Business reports. . In Q1 2024, delinquencies reached 8.9% at an annualized rate. America hasn't seen this high of a percentage of serious credit card delinquencies since 2012, Fox News reports. . In the first quarter of 2024, credit card and auto loan transition rates into serious delinquency continued to rise across all age groups, Joelle Scally, regional economic principal within the Household and Public Policy Research Division at the New York Fed, via Fox Business. An increasing number of borrowers missed credit card payments, revealing worsening financial distress among some households, Joelle Scally, regional economic principal within the Household and Public Policy Research Division at the New York Fed, via Fox Business. Researchers aren't sure why delinquencies are so high since the unemployment rate is low, but they have a few theories. One of those theories is that consumers drained savings throughout the pandemic but continue to spend at high levels. Another theory is that some Americans switched to jobs with lower salaries. Additionally, credit card eligibility may have been expanded for many whose student debt wasn't being reported to credit bureaus amid the pandemic. These are all kinds of complex issues. We don't exactly know what's behind the increase of these delinquency rates. But it's definitely something that we're tracking, New York Fed researchers, via Fox Business. The average annual percentage rate for credit cards hit a record of 20.72% recently.
