Google faces $1.7 billion lawsuit over AI chips patent infringement

A computer scientist, Joseph Bates, has filed a lawsuit against Google claiming that the internet giant should pay $1.67 billion for using his innovations to develop processors for AI-related tasks.

In response to the lawsuit, Google appeared before a federal jury in Boston and claimed that the company’s scientists on staff had developed the chips in question independently, according to a Reuters report.

Bates — the founder of Singular Computer — was represented by a lawyer named Kerry Timbers who argued that Google had duplicated Bates’ efforts after meeting him multiple times between 2010 and 2014 to discuss ideas that were key to solving challenges around artificial intelligence.
