U.S. Patent Office Issues Additional Guidance on Use of AI Tools

On October 30, 2023, President Biden issued the Executive Order on the Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence. This Executive Order called upon the Federal Government to enact and enforce protections as to AI-related harms, including “in critical fields like healthcare, financial services, education, housing, law, and transportation,” while promoting responsible uses of AI.

In response, on April 11, the United States Patent Office (USPTO) issued Guidance on Use of Artificial Intelligence-based Tools in Practice Before the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The guidance reminds practitioners about existing rules and policies that may be relevant to the use of AI tools. The guidance is aimed to help educate practitioners on possible risks presented by the use of AI tools so that practitioners can mitigate these risks. The guidance can be found at the following link: USPTO AI Guidance. Read more
