The Perplexity of Intellectual Property Law before the Emergence of Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence was born more than sixty years ago, but it has emerged in this decade. Although its real possibilities for development are still uncertain, it will undoubtedly mark the transition between the IV Industrial Revolution, the virtual one and the V Industrial Revolution, the cognitive one: what is at stake is the adaptation of human beings to the near future in which machines will create and invent, that is, the coexistence between algorithms and androrhythms. It is necessary to recognize that its irruption is already affecting all sectors of the intellectual property system, but very particularly patents and copyrights. Consecrated concepts such as authorship, novelty, inventive step or responsibility necessarily enter into crisis.
