ChatGPT Challenges to Patent Examination
【附谷歌英文翻译With Google English Translation】
在上一篇ChatGPT速评一中，笔者对以ChatGPT为代表的人工智能会对知识产权（专利）行业带来的影响做了简单分析，算是一个引子吧，接下来是从不同角度的子专题速评 - 本篇视角：专利审查。
但一旦ChatGPT速评一中“让专利制度覆灭”的场景出现，专利审查自然就变得毫无价值了。所以，这里面可以理解为有几个变量，它们之间具有某种相互作用关系（非要形象一点，就弄个函数来表示吧 - 一个理论研究方向哦，哈哈）。

In the last ChatGPT Quick Review 1 , the author made a brief analysis of the impact of artificial intelligence represented by ChatGPT on the intellectual property (patent) industry. Quick Review - The Perspective of This Article: Patent Examination.
1. Written in front of this article
As soon as the ChatGPT quick review was released, it attracted a certain amount of attention and discussion. However, the focus of everyone’s attention is not completely aligned with what I want to emphasize. Well, the ChatGPT quick review has not been elaborated, so I won’t go into details here. , Let’s keep it for everyone to understand slowly, or let’s chat alone (welcome).
There is still a big difference between the patent field and the daily life field. Therefore, what ChatGPT cannot achieve in people's daily life may not need to be paid attention to in the patent field. In other words, even if ChatGPT does not have delicate emotions, it cannot be compared to Li Bai Du Fu Poetry, but it is very likely to cause a fatal impact in the field of patents, which has no emotion (again, don’t start, understand or chat alone).
2. Will ChatGPT become a review tool?
Well, if the patent examination is still there, it is completely expected that ChatGTP will be introduced as an examination (including search) tool.
In fact, when the author was still a patent examiner more than 10 years ago, there was actually a "shadow" of ChatGTP for the requirements raised by the internal system . However, some functions already available in the original intranet system, such as intelligent search, semantic search, and even the standard paragraphs of the office action notice, can actually be regarded as the category of AI from a certain point of view, but at that time Compared with the current AI, in terms of technology and effect, the current AI is far different, that's all. Therefore, human beings have not become smarter in the past 10 years, but the technology is improving (don't compare technology progress It is the result of human beings becoming smarter, I don’t know how many people agree with it, at least the author does not agree).
Conclusion: ChatGPT will definitely become a censorship tool.
3. Will ChatGPT make patent review worthless?
To this question, my answer is, it depends...
In the short term (perhaps decades), ChatGTP will not make patent examination worthless . It is entirely possible, however, that the value of patent examination will vary over time (initiating or synergizing technologies) in a somewhat diminishing fashion.
But once the scene of “destroying the patent system” in ChatGPT Quick Review 1 appears, patent review will naturally become worthless. Therefore, it can be understood that there are several variables, and there is a certain interaction relationship between them (if you want to be more vivid, let’s use a function to express it-a theoretical research direction, haha).
The trend expressed by the function is that as the generation of patent applications depends more on ChatGPT, the value of patent examination is likely to be lower and lower (why? Think about the abnormal patent application problems that currently consume a lot of resources in China Bar).
4. Is there a solution?
From the perspective of total social welfare, is there a solution to the situation that ChatGPT may make patent examination worthless (patent examination itself consumes a lot of social resources)?
Perhaps using ChatGPT as a review tool (examiner) mentioned above will become an unavoidable choice, so that ChatGPT can deal with ChatGPT and fight poison with fire, but it is true. What is the significance of the existence of the patent system at this time? Does it exist in order for it to exist?
Click here first, and the next article will talk about a more specific patent review challenge that ChatGPT may bring (in fact, even without ChatGPT, this point is actually worth discussing ).
