All Your Prior Art Are Belong To Us

All Prior Art is a project that attempts to algorithmically create and publicly publish every single possible new prior art. The intent is to thereby making the published concepts not patentable.

The concept is to democratize ideas, provide an impetus for change in the patent system, and to preempt patent trolls. The system works by pulling text from the entire database of US issued and published (unapproved) patents and creating prior art from the patent language. While most inventions generated will be nonsensical, the cost to computationally create and publish millions of ideas is nearly zero – which allows for a higher probability of possible valid prior art.

Further, a large institution could dedicate many servers to this task, along with developing more advanced techniques such as deep learning, to flood the prior art space. It is not unforeseeable with current technology (along with sufficient cash for fees) to flood the actual patent application process itself with sufficiently advanced patent applications based on this concept.

Some examples follow:

A window-type semiconductor package is revealed, primarily comprising a substrate with an interconnection channel, a chip on the substrate, a die-attach adhesive between the chip and the substrate, and an encapsulant filling the interconnection channel.

The invention provides for engineered intestinal construct and methods of making these constructs. Due to a spur gear being rotated clockwise by a motor, a sliding cover, with which the spur gear is engaging, is moved toward a removing portion such that an opening of a cassette stocker portion is opened.

1460599526-edf09b1e-65c3-40bd-a01e-1045528df26a
A diode selection circuit for a light emitting apparatus according to some embodiments includes a plurality of light emitting devices coupled in series. The compositions are especially effective in removing lime-soaps in such greasy soil especially on institutional and commercial kitchen floors.

I can't help but think I've encountered this idea before, if not so specifically. In his 1726 story Gulliver's Travels, Jonathan Swift described a knowledge engine, which created works on divers subjects on command:

He then led me to the frame, about the sides, whereof all his pupils stood in ranks. It was twenty feet square, placed in the middle of the room. The superfices was composed of several bits of wood, about the bigness of a die, but some larger than others. They were all linked together by slender wires. These bits of wood were covered, on every square, with paper pasted on them; and on these papers were written all the words of their language, in their several moods, tenses, and declensions; but without any order. The professor then desired me “to observe; for he was going to set his engine at work.” The pupils, at his command, took each of them hold of an iron handle, whereof there were forty fixed round the edges of the frame; and giving them a sudden turn, the whole disposition of the words was entirely changed...
