Just a while longer before legal ontologies and ML get good enough to complete the commodification (commoditization?) of this sector of the economy... P

More seriously,

At some point, I will need to understand the legal relationship between
'prior art' and FTF.  It is absolutely necessary that publication of
prior art is a valid defense.  Otherwise the effect on academic work
could be catastrophic.

What is the status of a blog post? Or a google group for that matter? Do they constitute published material?
What if it is behind a paywall, or at least requires a login? I'm not really sure what counts either as adequate published material.

And seriously -- a digital assistant that is able to take input from some device, interpret it, connect it to an ontology and then orchestrate services over a network and send the results to an output device is a novel discovery? Siri's a great application that demonstrates how one can successfully deploy and commercialize various AI technologies, but the claims in this application are incredibly broad.
