Comments on Invention Machine Evolved By Genetic Programming
Artificially intelligent machines design parts for NASA, binoculars and circuit designs. Your so-called creative job is next. (Read

|"I almost forgot about the Neoterics from Theodore Sturgeon's 1941 short story Macrocosmic God. Brilliant story uses a similarly Darwinian form of 'evolving' an answer to a problem. "

|"As long as I'm here, you might also want to check into some problems that have been brought up concerning the legal status of computer entities filing patents, or people filing patents for computer-generated things that they did not create themselves. See Inventorship for Patents When Inventor is Not Human."
(Bill Christensen 4/19/2006 9:28:10 PM)
|"Wouldn't this kind of invention be the end of the whole patent-system? Is it really an invention when you these inventiones are machine-creatable, and couldn't this algorithm in itself be considered prior art for all future patents. Like holding the patent on having-an-idea in the first place?
Aren't the orginally only philosophical problems with patents, now turned into some real concrete problems, that we _have_ to deal with? "

|"So whose (or what) name is on the patent? The people who invented the machine (Koza et al) OR the machine that actually invented the object (Invention Machine)"

|"The names on the patent are those of Koza and his two partners. The important part of the law states "A person shall be entitled to a patent unless —...
(f) he did not himself invent the subject matter sought to be patented...""

|"I just remembered the Machine, from a John W. Campbell story of the 1930's, which is probably the granddaddy of these ideas -see the entry for John W. Campbell's thinking machine. "

|"This is not science fiction!!!!
This is true!!!"

|"This is about to truly revolutionize everything we currently understand and know. We are about to enter a new era of humanity, where we first create things then struggle to understand what we have created. Interesting."
