AIPLA proposes adopting the distinguishing terms “inventive AI” and “AI inventions.”

The term “inventive AI” refers to inventions that are derived, discovered, or otherwise arrived at primarily by or in conjunction with the efforts of AI. That is, inventive AI should be the term used when AI makes what would constitute an inventive contribution to an invention, if the contribution were made.

Conversely, the term “AI inventions” means those innovations that incorporate AI-related technologies.
