UK Court of Appeal ruled that AI cannot be listed as the inventor of the patent

Published

In 2018, American scientist and inventor Dr. Stephen Thaler, founder and chairman of the board of directors of Imagitron, as well as the author of the Creativity Machine paradigm, for which he managed to obtain in the United States patent No. 5659666 and derivatives from him patents, filed two patent applications, in which he indicated not himself as the author, but the artificial intelligence system DABUS created by him.

However, the patent offices of the United States and Great Britain rejected these applications, explaining that only an individual can be considered an inventor. Thaler was not satisfied with this decision and filed a lawsuit with the Supreme Court of Great Britain. This authority ruled against Thaler, to which the inventor responded with an appeal.

The Court of Appeal ruled this week that artificial intelligence cannot be listed as the inventor of the patent.

“Only a person can have rights. The machine can’t, ”Appellate Judge Elisabeth Laing wrote in her ruling. “A patent is a legal right, and it can only be bestowed on a person.”

Thaler also failed in the United States. In early September, a district court upheld a decision by the US Patent and Trademark Office, which stated that “only individuals can be named inventors in a patent application.” At the same time, a judge in Australia ruled in August that AI inventions could also be patented.

Goodbye 100 MP. Redmi K60 smartphones will receive a 50-megapixel sensor as part of the main camera

Goodbye 100 MP Redmi K60 smartphones will receive a 50

An insider, known on the Web under the nickname Digital Chat Station, published details about the camera of Redmi K60 smartphones. According to the leaker, the devices in the series will “upgrade” to a 50-megapixel sensor. It sounds like a downgrade in words, but in fact, the 50-megapixel sensor should provide higher quality photos and videos compared to the current 100-megapixel sensors.

The 100-megapixel sensor used in Redmi K50 Pro will be a thing of the past

What kind of sensor in question is not reported. Possible options are Sony IMX766 or Sony IMX707. The first is used in Xiaomi 12 (and in many other flagships of the current year), the second is used in Xiaomi 12 Pro. At the same time, this may be the only innovation of the Redmi K60 camera: the rest of the low-resolution sensors (8 and 2 megapixels) will remain, and there will most likely be no telephoto lens.

Digital Chat Station was previously the first to accurately announce the specifications and release dates of Redmi K30, K40, Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 11.

Two models are expected to be released at once: Aya Neo 2 and Aya Neo Geek. The first version will receive 16/32 GB of RAM and from 512 GB to 2 TB of permanent memory. In all cases, there will be 7-inch 1200p screens. Declared support for Windows 11 and Aya Neo OS based on Linux. Prices start at $949 for pre-orders. Retail prices start at $999. The maximum price for pre-order will be $1199, retail – $1499.

The second Geek model is positioned as more affordable. It has the same processor, but the most basic version will get an 800p screen. It will have 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. The maximum version with a 1200p screen, 32 GB of RAM and 2 TB of permanent storage will cost $1149/$1369.

Chinese scientists have created a biomedical robot from liquid metal

Scientists from Soochow University have created a microscopic robot that can break up into drops and then reassemble. The work was published in the journal Science Advances.

The human body is full of winding narrow passages that are too tight for normal robots. The microrobot created by scientists is potentially useful for delivering drugs – in difficult places it can break up into smaller components, and then assemble back. At the same time, there is no need to reduce the payload that it can carry.

The robot consists of a ferrofluid – a suspension of iron oxide and hydrocarbon oil. You can control it with the help of spherical magnets, passing it through the narrow passages in the body. To demonstrate the potential utility of the robot, the researchers built a maze with large and narrow sections and then successfully navigated it to the end of the maze.

The main obstacle to the use of the invention for biomedical purposes may be the inaccessibility for clinics of magnetic control systems, which must be powerful enough to penetrate human tissue.
