In the 21st century, with the rapid growth of computer computing speed and the enhancement in cloud computing infrastructure, the artificial intelligence based on simulated human neural networks has developed to a new stage. Being the foundation and core of the new technological revolution, the artificial intelligence has been widely applied in economy, society and law areas. In the future, the artificial intelligence may completely emancipate the human beings by directly replacing human’s mental activity to a certain degree. As the product of the development of science and technology, the intellectual property system develops continuously with the progress of science and technology. Due to the increasing scope and extent of the application of artificial intelligence in intellectual property work, it is likely to make a difference on the existing intellectual property system. However, the current intellectual property system in various countries are still based on the international conventions in the electrical age like Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property (the 1967 Act) and the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works (the 1971 Act). Therefore, the artificial intelligence not only bring great challenges in the aspect of the subject, object and right content to the intellectual property system but also provide a few of new opportunities to this system.
