SIMPLE: Interactive analytics on patent data

View publication


Intellectual Properties (IP), such as patents and trademarks, are one of the most critical assets in today's enterprises and research organizations. They represent the core innovation and differentiators of an organization. When leveraged effectively, they not only protect freedom of action, but also generate significant opportunities in licensing, execution, long term research and innovation. In this paper, we expand upon a previous paper describing a solution called SIMPLE, which mines large corpus of patents and scientific literature for insights. In this paper we focus on the interactive analytics aspects of SIMPLE, which allow the analyst to explore large unstructured information collections containing mixed information in a dynamic way. We use real-world case studies to demonstrate the effectiveness of interactive analytics in SIMPLE. © 2010 IEEE.
