  abstract =     "Previous work has demonstrated that genetic
                 programming can automatically create analog electrical
                 circuits, controllers, and other devices that duplicate
                 the functionality and, in some cases, partially or
                 completely duplicate the exact structure of inventions
                 that were patented between 1917 and 1962. This paper
                 reports on a project in which we browsed patents of
                 analog circuits issued after January 1, 2000 on the
                 premise that recently issued patents represent current
                 research that is considered to be of practical and
                 scientific importance. The paper describes how we used
                 genetic programming to automatically create circuits
                 that duplicate the functionality or structure of five
                 post -2000 patented inventions. This work employed four
                 new techniques (motivated by the theory of genetic
                 algorithms and genetic programming) that we believe
                 increased the efficiency of the runs. When an automated
                 method duplicates a previously patented human -designed
                 invention, it can be argued that the automated method
                 satisfies a Patent -Office-based variation of the
                 Turing test.",
