Monika Bruckmann, Head of Information Intelligence, Evonik Industries AG
Alan Porter, Director of R&D, Search Technology
Yi Zhang, Lecturer at the Australian Artificial Intelligence Institute, University of Technology Sydney
Our panelists representing views across academia and industry will explore the concept of TechMining professionalism by first discussing:
how each performs TechMining and to what scope (tools, data sources, analytical approaches, use cases/applications)
novel tools (AI + data science) and novel data/approaches (beyond Social media, web crawling, etc.) on the horizon
setting the stage for determining to what extent should/can the TechMining “job” be outsourced to external consultants vs being part of tech-based companies to enable more direct communication/application of TechMining results?
9:00 -10:00 AM EST | 3:00 PM-4:00 PM CET
Power Talks and Poster Session (pre-recorded video accessible anytime)
9:20 -9:25 AM EST | 3:20 -3:25 PM CET
Facilitate technology opportunities analysis based on patent knowledge-network Prof. Munan LI (学术搜索) South China University of Technology
..We proposed a new framework on technology opportunities analysis (TOA).Based on the basic methods of PKN, … three indicators (dimensions) as KD (knowledge diversification), KU(knowledge uniqueness) and KCA (knowledge combination-ability) are proposed to facilitate the TOA studies [and used in] case study on Blockchain technologies;…results … are verified by the latest patent data of Blockchain.

What are SEPs? Which problems do they solve? How is the process of their classification as well as their enforcement structured? How are SEPs distinguishable from non SEPs? Why or why not should a company or an individual declare a patent as SEP? In which regions do SEPs work and what about in other regions? What novel techniques may serve the identification of SEPs? Training of machine learning to differ between SEPs and nSEPs? Comparing patents to technical standards? Analyzing patent characteristics to detect path dependencies which serve standard setting characteristics?
