China AI patent submissions shoot up

US leads in total submissions while Japanese figure drops

TOKYO -- China has led growth in artificial intelligence-related patent applications in recent years, while total U.S. submissions remained by far the highest, data compiled by Japanese company Astamuse showed.

The Tokyo-based company's tally showed total applications in China grew about 190% to 8,410 in the five-year period from 2010 as compared with the figure for the previous five years. That represents the biggest jump among the 10 countries and regions surveyed, which include the U.S., China, Europe, Japan and South Korea.
