Technologies for IP management
Novel technologies are changing many different aspects of our life and increasingly impact how decisions are made. We are particularly interested in how new technology, such as artificial intelligence, machine and deep learning, but also visualization techniques and blockchain with smart contracts may change patent analytics and IP management, i.e. how it supports to maximize value creation and capture.
Technologies such as AI may support decision making at gates of stage-gate processes, AI may also support the drafting of patent applications and identify potential licensee in other industries and markets, which are usually the difficult unknown-unknowns. Blockchain and other technologies may contribute to digitizing licensing payment streams along complex supply chains and innovation systems. Our research address these issues and particularly how novel technologies can “re-invent” IP management and licensing.
