Project patents for AI Inventions

Patent an invention of an AI system?
Not so fast!
This we learn from David Miessler:
The UK Supreme Court has ruled that AI systems cannot be recognized as inventors of patents. In other words, only a natural person can be an inventor, which is fine, except it won’t stop inventors from using armies of inventor/documentation agents from not only coming up with ideas but writing and submitting all the paperwork. In the name of the human. (Read the source document here)

Will this be the position of the patent office and courts in the U.S.? Who knows, but then there is the question of enforcement of a U.S. AI patent in Europe.
