AAU researchers win “Big Data Analytics” Challenge

Economists Daniel Hain and Roman Jurowetzki win the first IP Statistics for Decision Makers (IPSDM) “Big Data Analytics” Challenge with their Global Patent Explorer.

Mapping innovation around the globe

The AAU Global Patent Explorer is a tool that lets you map and visualize inventive and innovative activity around the globe. The project is a good example of modern knowledge dissemination, going beyond academic publication. 

The tool is based on a series of recent working papers that look into new artificial intelligence and natural language processing based approaches to patent quality indicators. Possible applications range from the development of decision support indicators for policymakers to tools that enable investors and firms to identify future technologies, or patent offices to identify infringements.

The IP Statistics for Decision Makers (IPSDM) conference brings together policymakers and practitioners across the world to discuss how intellectual property data, statistics and analysis are used and can be used to inform decision-makers in both the public and private sectors.

The conference is organised by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). It took place in Alicante, Spain October 23-25.  

AAU researchers Daniel Hain and Roman Jurowetzki have several years of experience with applied machine learning and artificial intelligence. Earlier in September 2018, they launched the Social Data Science semester, a 9th-semester offer for master students at the Faculty of Social Sciences at Aalborg University.
