Of Swords and Shields: Winning in Business Through IP Analytics

Big Data, as well as advances in data analytics and machine learning, have transformed industries around the world. Governments and firms invest billions into R&D as they compete to innovate and develop new business advantages. Yet, there remains untapped potential in the vast trove of IP and technical data. Between 2015 and 2020, there were over 130 million published patent documents.

The strategic use of IP data enables business leaders and policymakers to make sharper decisions and achieve better outcomes. They guide business decisions in R&D investments, entering new markets, mitigating potential risks, protecting and commercialising new products and services. IP data and analytics are powerful tools that serve to either defend a business interest or advance a company’s offensive objectives.

In this panel, leading technology and data practitioners will share how they have gazed into the crystal ball and derived actionable intelligence from IP data to win in the innovation race.

From Start-up to Unicorn: Unleashing the IP 

At the start of 2021, there were 800 unicorns worldwide with a total market valuation of more than $2 trillion.
