What can Patent Analytics do for you? The short answer is it will help you beat your competitors in terms of technology offerings and marketability. This is especially useful for entrepreneurs who are selling similar products to that of their competitors. With Patent Analytics done through the Patentagentip way which we called 'next paradigm shift', you will have a better foresight as to the next iteration of your old product coming into the market as we at Patentagentip will help you create the next patent that will give you protection from being copied - thus you will be able to hold your fort in spite of the many copy-cats that will come battering your way. Unlike what others are using patent analytics to tell you what is out there, we at Patentagentip will go the way to give you a glimpse of what is possible for the future. This is because we use human intelligence to help create your next product - with our foresights to visualize the next incarnation. You will realize that just gathering information from out there is no more useful to you - you will also need the ability to create from nothing out there as scientist are wanting to tell you that the Big Bang was probably the creating of something from nothing!
But what is so special about our patent analytics - we see what is not out there - it is not the same as others who mostly rely on computer algorithms? Well, we are different because we use human analytical intelligence; the analysis is done using human minds which is able to think out of the box (not anybody for that matter) - so that you get an insight of what a human mind is able to extrapolate from those patents that have been published. Human ingenuity is able to create what is not in existence but machines are only capable of reading what is published. So you get a bit of what is possible from the minds of professionals - which will put you in the innovator league. But what about artificial intelligence you might ask - can AI also be a creator? Yes, they seemed to be able to create art pieces and not machines at the moment! So what Patentagentip will help you with the analytics is that it will create new products, new patents that is in line with what you are doing - but if you need something that is of a different domain, that can also be done. It will be clear now that our offering is different from other run of the same block analytics company. We put our stake on our experienced human resources (who understand industrial process and marketing) who are market innovators.
And for those who are facing infringement issues or those who trying very hard to fence-off competitors, subscribing to our 'next paradigm shift' patent analytics will face a better future because we will put you at the front by helping to create new products (with new patents) that will make you a market leader - you can do better by shrugging-off becoming market laggards! This is not possible by any other analytics firm because they just can't perform as they will only give you some statistics to chew over - they can't provide you the vision of the future as they can only read what is being offered in the public domain. You now see the difference made by an experienced team of innovators/inventors and that difference will make you the market leader!
Before anything else, we would need to do a patent landscape on the particular key word of the search. Searching is free (free software) but laborious work. Understanding the patent landscape should be tasked to the professional and not any engineer (or you for that matter) who does not understand the workings of a patent. Besides gaining an insight of the patent landscape, there would be another process termed extrapolation, which is to imagine what would be the most likely technology to come to the market. This process should only be taken by a professional who has a deep knowledge of the working of a patent - one would have to be able to vision what is not written or shown in literatures. The other asset of this person who is going to extrapolate is the urge of being innovative and not only that, he/she must be able to invent in his/her mind and later put in paper of how the thing might work and at what cost. To be able to have a sense of the cost is vitally important because the idea must be simple enough to be able to produce - some people have the tendency to figure out complex mechanics but must bear in mind the cost of bringing to product to the market. Keeping things simple is more than an art and you will find it rare to meet people who can think in simple forms. One other thing to bear in mind is that although ideas can get complex as it evolves, the idea must be rendered in as simple a form as possible and in the quickest of time - and we do that for a living!
Inventor-led Patent Analytics that will give you practical insights and great ideas to go about and in so doing, take your market by storm - intelligent analysis of the intellectual property landscape and to top it off, we will also use our inventor team to predict what is next step of the technology so that you have a good view of where you want to go. In doing our prediction we will also scale a model of the future technology - you might also want to patent it for future use, sort of future proof your business to be ahead of the competition. When our team of inventors/innovators do an analysis of the patent landscape, new ideas will immediately sparked off from their minds - something that has become intuitive due to our team's wide experience in the patent fraternity. It is this ideation process that will be forwarded to you for your opinion and acceptance. This is the insight that you will not get from all those algorithm searches done by computer software - it is the unique insights from human brain - that of our team of human inventors/innovators!
What can a normal run of the mill patent landscape analysis tell you?
First of all a patent landscape will give you a good view of what your competitors are doing.
Second, you will know which direction to go after we have predicted for you the next technology that is to come.
Third and most probably the most important is that you will get a lot of time thinking about what you should do and like most people will not do anything because surprisingly, a knowledge of the patent landscape will lead you to be more confuse - you will not have any insights after reading all those beautiful charts and info graphics that the other analyst provide!
Furthermore, what if you don't have a patent or something that you want to file? In case you are thinking of a patent, we can help you to create one from our inventing-as-a-service platform.
Obviously more delays and inaction as you ponder on. What then if the patent is expiring? Well, if you have a patent that is of strategic importance to your on-going business and if it expiring soon, you will need to conjure up new features to help extend the protection period - this is where we can be of assistance as we are good at coming up with innovative suggestions. This is a feature of our service that is not available from other analysts as they can only give you some graphs and pie charts to view! Give us a thought if you are in such a dire situation.
So get in touch with us and let us help you in the creation of a patent - let us have an inkling of what is in your mind and we will go to work out an idea for you. We are sure that with our idea to play about, you will be able to experience great excitement, the kind of motivation like you come off with a great idea for the first time!
You will be able to get from our analysis:
• Technology Trends that are published – you will be aware of the type of technology that is being developed. It is now a trend to go out there and to scoop up all the information about a particular subset of patent. It is now easily done by software run by just anyone from the office. With the information gathered it will probably be able to warn you of what not to step into, so you will need to think of something new which is what is required in this dog eat dog scenario. A patent landscape will probably tell you about those patents that had already been published or in the public domain. But what about those that has yet to be published? Which is even more important because they are more current to the topic - so there has to be a way of forecasting, sort of extrapolating? And we do that here by using a mix of artificial intelligence and human ingenuity culled from our twenty over years of experience in patenting which you will not get from any other program. Period.
Here at Patentagentip, we will first do a brainstorm session with our industry experts/inventors/innovators. This will be followed by the use of our patented "computer vision artificial intelligence engine" which will render published patents in their virtual form with focus on animating the content (where there are diagrams) so that corporate engineers will be able to understand what the patent signify. This is a proprietary program designed by our engineers to dig into the information (in the form of diagrams) to learn and have a better understanding of how a thing works (if it contains mechanical info or software).
Then and only then that we have a proper insight (from human), we will then narrow down the item to focus and also searching for the market awareness. It is that important element that we call the human touch, which is using our industry knowledge to figure out a way to beat the competitors. If we were to depend on only on artificial intelligence and natural language processing which is what is the norm out there to dig out relevant information, then the so called insights (from software) would not be useful for they will probably be lack of any entrepreneurial sparks, something that will make the difference. As it is after all gathered by computers, it will not offer you any useful insights nor will it spark you to think of something new that you can do. Anyway what the landscape study tells you is of those that are published – it does not tell you of recent developments especially from the market place. You will be well advised to trip on something that is far off the beaten track. Something out of the box would be a better bet - and we are there to help you.
• Who are the major players – the landscape will tell you who your competitors are if you were to do the same thing.
• Time of development – often enough a look at the different time of the developments will tell you how far you can go. If most of the developments were crowded at a certain span of time, then it would be better to go to some other developments as it could be a small spark from a big crowd.
• Geographical Spread – they are probably only four major groups consisting of Greater America, Europe, China and Japan/Korea. It would also indicate as to where the developments will be used.
Why a normal patent landscape study offered by the many analytics company will lead you to nowhere!
First of all it would be safe to say that the data were most probably culled from the many publishers available on tap and it is normally free to boot. You will have to go through the whole report that has nothing insightful to say except for some glorifications of pie charts and info grams of so called relevant knowledge. Knowing these developments will not lead you to be wiser; rather it will probably tell you that there are many areas that you should not go into. What they called insights is derived from big data, read off and crunched from servers. You will sooner realise that all those analysis from different analytics program are almost the same and they seldom lead you to any spark of idea. Yet, a lot of big companies rely on it as it is convenient – just by a click of a mouse you will get the whole picture on your desktop. Or you will waste a lot of time studying it and trying to get an insight. Well, a lot of other guys are also looking at the same thing – so no one will get a spark unless he is the kid that thinks out of the box which is something that we are good with as our team is made up of inventors/innovators.
Can Big Data help you to spark invention?
Yes and No!
Certainly, because big data will help to see more things; which is like widening your scope of view. However it is also true that with the help of big data, you will not be able to focus on those little tiny things that are easier to handle. The sponsors of big data would like you to believe that they will draw you to those insights or trends that they say will make the difference. Unfortunately you will not hear of people getting their spark from big data insights. Trends will help you to focus on those things that are happening but it will not help you to figure something out of the ordinary - and indeed it is those out of the ordinary that will surprise people, something the patent practitioners termed non obvious which is what the patent examiner would be looking for before they grant you the patent. We are therefor for the belief that big data is of no help for sparking innovations; rather it is those little things that will make you curious enough to ponder more. Ponder more means you will start to dream of possibilities - which are the spark of innovations!
Can Artificial Intelligence assist in IP Analytics?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) can supplement human intelligence to analyse patent and IP publications culled from the public repositories but even with help from such advancement in machine learning, it is still a long way before the stage where human inputs are not required. With AI things can move faster but only on relevant searches. Still there are many areas where it has been conveniently missed as not significant information and thus ignored. Using AI will involve a shift from keyword-based searches for patent insights and discoveries, although AI has made it possible for enhanced semantic searches using neural network connections and inferring. With the capability of Machine Learning, AI assisted algorithms will cut short the time to go to market for relevant searches appropriate to determine novelty issues of patents. We also engage AI and Big Data Modules to help us cut down the time taken going through the huge amount of data culled from public depositories.
AI will assist in the searching of patent info from public libraries and websites. As the number of publications have increased ten folds, it is no more feasible to search for keywords and trends, so instead searching is done by artificial intelligence focussing on the use of neural network analysis and semantic vectors. The increased use of AI have assisted patent examiners all over the world in their quest for searching of meaningful data that can help them in determining whether a patent has merit in terms of novelty. IBM's Watson IP Advisor comes into mind as the main player using artificial intelligence algorithms. Even though AI has given tremendous help in searching for relevant IP information, it is still unable to provide new ideas in the form of ideation of working models. Such being the case, there will be the need of human input to come up with working models. At Patentagentip, we are doing it even as we have been assisted by artificial intelligence in our searching work.
What we do at Patentagentip
First, you will have to feed us on what you want to do. It is not necessary that you feed us the exact thing that you want to invent. An inkling of an idea or a rough sketch will suffice. Then we will put our minds to ideate and our team of inventors/innovators will go about brainstorming the subject matter. We will also search the internet for some initial ideas and after that we will further solidify the idea. Ideas must be able to perform something - as well as software. It has to perform something.
We also do a patent landscape analysis but we do not have to depend on it to get an insight. It only serves as a starter point but from there we put our minds – human minds into it and we normally get a fresh idea after digesting the landscape study. Here we have a big difference from the normal run of the mill analyst in that we normally are able to create a spark. For us, even a single spark may churn out a plethora of ideas which we normally will narrow it down to those that we think are doable without incurring a great expense. Further developments will normally take place as we will have to do further research to narrow down those that are right for the market. It does take some time though as compared to the one dished out by machines and algorithms. When the development is right, then we will forward it to you for consideration – normally you will be greatly surprised that we have come up with the idea. It is a fact that we do surprise our clients on many occasions as our team are consisting of serial inventors. Their sparks of ideas are way different from those that are gathered by algorithms. But truth be said, not everybody will agree with us from the start go. Normally further consultations are required to narrow down the idea which will take perhaps months. It must be mentioned here that once an idea is sparked, the evolvement will take place with further sparks and some market researching is done to boot. So you see we do it differently and uniquely as well.
Still, even with the help of Big Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence Algorithms, it would not be easy to create anything worthwhile. You will need the art of being creative which you can read it here and sad to say you will not be able to get the useful insight from machine learning. We will make the difference for you. Period.
