Computer-implemented inventions and Artificial Intelligence: New practice in Chile

Digital communication is the leading technological field with the most patent applications in Europe.

The growing technology development that has driven the current digital transformation phenomenon is clearly manifested in the global patenting figures. According to the latest Patent Index of the European Patent Office, in 2022, for the second year in a row, digital communication remains the leading technology field with the highest number of patent applications filed in Europe, followed in close third place by computer technologies. Consequently, companies such as Huawei, LG, Qualcomm, Samsung, and Ericsson led as main patent applicants in the same period.

This accelerated growth of technology companies that develop products or solutions based on computer programs, as well as the boom in the development of solutions based on artificial intelligence, call for reflection on the current patentability criteria for computer-implemented inventions.

A computer-implemented invention is an innovation that solves a problem using at least one electronic processor that plays a fundamental role in the solution of the technical problem. This type of inventions can incorporate additional elements to the processor. Such as antennas, processing memories, power sources, user interface, among others, thus enhancing the final solution. Read more
