The rapid development of artificial intelligence technology has brought a series of challenges to the intellectual property system. In terms of the subject system, granting AI subject status will impact on the system centred on natural persons. In terms of the object system, AI creations are caught in the dilemma of identifying the objects of intellectual property protection and innovative standards. In terms of the content of rights, granting intellectual property protection to AI creations will face difficulties in the protection of personal rights, the duration of rights and the limitation of rights. In this regard, China's intellectual property system should be changed to expand the scope of the subject matter, improve the criteria for determining innovativeness, and improve the system for the content of rights, with a view to balancing the interests of all parties and promoting the development of artificial intelligence.
