Genie in the Machine

How AI-Powered Innovation Is Revolutionizing Business


The future of businesses depends on how they respond to the lightning-speed changes in innovation technology

We have long considered inventing to be a uniquely human activity. But software today can automatically generate designs for everything, from toothbrushes to automobile frames, more quickly and inexpensively than ever before. Artificial invention is enabling small teams of inventors to compete with mega-corporations who depend on old methods, and is making it possible for even consumers to design and manufacture new inventions from the comfort of their home.

The Genie in the Machine is a landmark book that explores the impact of AI-powered innovation on businesses. Along with practical advice for inventors, high-tech companies and patent lawyers, this futuristic book attempts to answer two necessary questions: Should inventions designed by software be patentable? Should the software that produces those designs be patentable?

Our decisions about these inventions today will dictate who gets to control this powerful technology tomorrow.
