Very soon, the patent attorney profession will be disrupted by conversational language models.
Then please listen to this interview with DeepMind co-founder Mustafa Suleyman. It’s a fascinating first-hand perspective on the journey from AI beating humankind in chess, then in Go, and now folding proteins beyond levels experts would have thought possible a moment ago.
The recent advancements in natural language processing are equally astonishing. OpenAI’s ChatGPT is just the tip of the iceberg, with open-source models like FalconLLM catching up quickly.
What do we patent attorneys produce?
We craft words, arguments, narratives, stories.
This is exactly where AI will beat human-level capability very soon. Maybe it has already.
Am I saying that AI will replace us?
No, it won’t. AI will supercharge those patent attorneys who embrace it.
Both in terms of productivity and work product quality.
Will you be part of these exciting developments?
