3 ways Sora AI Can Transform the Patent World

Sora AI text to video

In the evolving landscape of artificial intelligence, few developments have been as eagerly anticipated as OpenAI’s Sora AI. Launched in February, 2024, Sora represents a paradigm shift in how we can interact with AI. This groundbreaking technology to convert a mere text prompt to a life-like video has not only captured the imagination of the tech industry but has also set the stage for transformative changes in the field of patents. For inventors and patent professionals, understanding and harnessing Sora’s potential could redefine the paradigms of innovation, protection, and competition.

Sora, as introduced by OpenAI, is not just another AI application. It is a revolutionary tool capable of creating videos from textual inputs. Currently, Sora can generate only up to a minute of a video length with complex scenes and moving characters. However, its potential to create several varieties of videos is endless.

If applied to the patent ecosystem, this could transform the way inventors and patent professionals operate. Let’s try to foresee 3 use-cases where Sora can simply our lives:

1. Visualization of Inventions

Sora’s unique proposition lies in its ability to synthesize short pieces of text (called prompts) into video. This could transform patent documentation. Inventors sometimes struggle to articulate their inventions’ complexities through text and diagrams. However, with Sora, inventors and patent drafters could create dynamic visualizations of their inventions. Inventors may find it relatively easier to explain how their invention works to their patent attorney, which could result in a more efficient patent application drafting process. Better written patent applications could further reduce misinterpretations and objections, potentially increasing the allowance rate of patents.

2. Education and Training

For new patent professionals, the patent field generally offers a steep learning curve, exacerbated by the complex and legal language used in patent documentation. Sora could serve as an educational tool, transforming dense patent texts into accessible video content for training purposes in IP firms. This could be further extended to train inventors on how to better write invention disclosures and in general, to better navigate patent processes. This would not only make patent law more accessible to inventors and students but could also serve as a continuous training tool for professionals looking to keep up with the latest developments in patent law and technology.

3. Competitive Analysis and Market Intelligence

Understanding the competitive landscape is crucial for inventors and companies looking to patent new inventions. Sora AI could be employed to analyze vast quantities of patent data, creating visual summaries of competitors’ patent portfolios, technology trends, and potential market gaps. This level of analysis, accessible and comprehensible, could empower patent strategists to make informed decisions, guiding R&D investment and patent filing strategies more effectively. Powerpoint presentations, of course, can help one visualize such data. However, with the combined power of Generative AI and Text-to-video, Sora could take this capability to another level altogether.

Sora AI’s Limitations

It’s important to recognize that while Sora’s potential applications in the patent field are vast, there are limitations. The technology’s current capabilities, though impressive, may still be in their nascent stages. For example, Open AI acknowledges that Sora may have problems simulating the physical and spatial aspects of a scene accurately. One of the examples is that of a video of a person taking a cooking bite and Sora not showing up the bite mark on the cookie after the bite is taken.

Additionally, there have been instances where the current chat-based GPT tools like Chat GPT and Google Bard have had biases and hallucinations in the data they generate. Correct interpretation of data and generating relevant text without biases is another challenge that needs to be overcome. Nonetheless, such tools offer a promising future, which could greatly simplify the way patent industry operates.

As we stand on the brink of what could be a new chapter in patent law and AI integration, it’s clear that technologies like Sora AI are not just tools but catalysts for change. For inventors and patent professionals, staying abreast of these developments, experimenting with new AI technologies, and engaging in discussions around their ethical, legal, and practical implications will be key to navigating this evolving landscape.
