Alice Must Be Revisited In View Of Emerging Technologies

courts will soon have to grapple with, e.g., the issue of patentability of AI-generated inventions. With the breakneck pace at which technological advances are being generated and broadly adopted, the courts should expect to be asked to address those issues soon and to provide helpful guidelines for dealing with them.

Several of these segments represent separate immense industries on their own (e.g., drug, insurance, and medical device industries). On top of this, federal and state laws and regulations impose strict requirements regarding what can be sold, how products are to be evaluated, who is going to pay for which services, who is eligible for which benefits, who can practice where, etc.
