    Preparing Patent Analytics Projects and Patent Landscape Reports- Hands-On Lessons

    PIUG presents an opportunity to learn valuable practical skills from Tony Trippe, a leading expert with many years of experience in Patinformatics. Join us for a series of webinars providing details on some of the stages required for performing patent analytics, and for the preparation of a Patent Landscape Report (PLR).

    Patent analytics and PLRs support informed decision-making and are designed to efficiently address the concerns associated with making high stakes decisions in technologically advanced areas with a maximum degree of confidence. For many years’ decision-makers operated based on personal networks and intuition. With the institution of patent analytics, and PLRs, it is possible for these critical decisions to be made with data-driven approaches that deliver informed choices, and lower risk profiles. Working with patent data can be complicated due to the nature of the subject matter, and the lack of standard in the way it is delivered from the offices that generate it.

    This four part series of webinars provides specific steps for the production of patent analysis projects and PLRs including step-by-step instructions for performing these operations:

    The Linear Law of Patent Analysis was proposed as a framework for performing patent analysis projects in 2002. It was developed to assist practitioners in understanding the importance of starting an analysis by investigating the needs of the customer for the analytics, as opposed to simply jumping in with an analysis tool. A brief overview of this concept and methodology for performing patent analytics will be discussed.

    Due to the nuances of the worldwide patent system a situation exists where a single invention might have many individual patent documents associated with it, depending on the number of countries the applicant sought protection in. The situation becomes even more complicated as patent documents are published at different stages throughout the prosecution cycle. In order to clarify the number of inventions produced compared to the number of patent documents published, the concept of a patent family was created. There are a number of different types of patent families, and methods for reducing the number of documents to represent a family. An examination of these different methods will be provided.

    Data cleanup and grouping are processes for the manual, or automatic standardization of terms or items, within a data field, to correct errors or inconsistencies, or to group synonymous entries. It is required by patent analysts in order to produce statistically relevant results. It is necessary since raw patent data is notoriously "messy" and requires cleanup or standardization to produce accurate results. Misspellings, for instance, are a common occurrence within certain fields, and require correction. There are also many terms with the same or similar meanings, within the English language, and these should be grouped together when analyzing concepts. Specific examples and tools for cleaning and standardizing patent data for generating a data table will be covered.

    Times Listed are Arbitrary, but the session is one hour long.

    Once a data table has been created in a workbook or a spreadsheet a number of interesting and insightful analyses can be conducted using common office software tools that most practitioners have access to. The most common of these MS Excel and the PivotTable function is one of the most powerful functions available for comparing fields, or in the case of a spreadsheet columns that represent the attributes of a patent family. This webinar will cover the basics of generating a PivotTable from a data table and using this functionality to generate statistical data from a patent collection. There will also be hands-on examples of using this statistical data to create bar and column charts, as well as line graphs and table to provide insights into a patent data set.

    • 4.       Producing Patent Landscape Reports that will be Read and Used by Senior Management
      • Delivering reams of data and visualizations while satisfying for demonstrating the amount of effort accomplished by the analyst will not necessarily be received well by a senior manager, or technology decision maker. Once all of the component pieces have been assembled, it is time for the analyst to interpret their results and decide on the most critical insights that will be shared in the deliverables to the decision-makers, and stakeholders in the PLR project. The way these insights are organized and delivered will have a major impact on the likelihood that the recommendations of the analysts will actually be implemented by the client. This webinar will cover practical examples of how to put together and deliver the results of a patent analysis project so that the most organizationally critical items are seen by the decision maker.

    Abstract:

    Whether we are aware of it or not, WIPO Standards have a direct impact on how modern patent documentation is collected, published, collated and distributed, both in free and commercial databases.  However, adherence to a WIPO standard is rarely mandatory, and even major offices can differ in their interpretation and implementation of them.  This workshop will review the range of standards, not just for patents but other IP as well, in order to give an overview of the field.  We will discuss the patent information standards in more detail, and seek to understand how patent information specialists can benefit from the resulting data feeds from national and regional patent offices.  Instances where patent offices apply different rules will be particularly noted, and the impact of this on how we interpret database records, and indeed on the record structure in some databases.

    Abstract:

    In this workshop, we aim to familiarize the patent professionals with basic ideas in AI and machine learning and the emphasis will be on developing and intuitive understanding of approaches and not on mathematical rigor. The workshop content is broken down into six parts.


    Part I: This part of the workshop will delve deep into recent developments in AI and the breadth of AI applications. We will provide a glimpse into tools and trends that are poised to accelerate innovation. Welcome to the Fourth Industrial Revolution.


    Part II: This part of the workshop will explain the basics of supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning methods. AI based patents are increasingly reporting the data analytics workflow using such machine learning methods.  We will cover the fundamentals, challenges and opportunities of different algorithms.  Also we will discuss the landscape of machine learning from a patent perspective.


    Part III: This part of the workshop covers essential concepts in neural networks and the basics of major deep learning models starting with Convolutional Neural Networks. We will also discuss some topics on  computer vision technology and applications. The goal is to empower the patent searchers with the skills of deep learning that will help them to evaluate the deep learning based patents.


    Part IV: In this part of the workshop, we will discuss neural network methods for Natural Language Processing which includes Word embedding and Recurrent Neural Networks. Some of the applications will be discussed, for instance, machine translation, sentiment analysis, topic modelling, indexing and AI driven patent classification.  These methods are increasingly applied to process the patent texts at the patent offices and by business intelligence analysts.


    Part V: AI is a global phenomenon, a technology that has arrived. Given this, in this part of the workshop we will discuss the patent activity in AI and how this is influencing different industry verticals. With the patent landscape is rapidly changing patent offices are discussing the interplay between AI and patents. Analysis of patents requires expertise in AI. In other words, learning AI is increasingly becoming important for a patent professional. We will discuss all these topics in this part of the workshop.


    Part VI: Last but not the least, we will discuss how the patent search software tools are migrating towards AI and upgrading their newer version with these techniques. Also we will discuss some of the AI based patents as case studies in different domains such as, biotechnology, pharma, electronics, mechanical and the like.


    AI is getting ready for patents, but is patent searcher ready for AI?

    Presenter:
    Tonya Heyboer, Serco IP Services

    Abstract:

    Interact with Serco’s classification experts in a three-part workshop that explores techniques for using CPC in a search.


    The three-part workshop will begin with general principles for searching with CPC.  You will learn how to interpret the CPC system to identify appropriate CPC symbols as well as techniques for search construction.


    Secondly, participants will apply these principles to a specific search example in a breakout session.  Three breakout session choices will be offered:  a mechanical search, a biochemical search, or an electrical search.  Each breakout session will be an interactive and collaborative activity guided by Serco’s classification experts.  Presented with a search request, each breakout group will assess which CPC symbols are appropriate, determine how to construct the classification search(es), and evaluate the classification search results.


    Finally, all workshop participants will reconvene to discuss key takeaways from the breakout session examples.


    Reference materials for the workshop include presentation handouts and a classification analysis for all three breakout session examples.  Additionally, Serco will provide each workshop attendee with a classification analysis for a search topic of their choice.
