Intellectual assets management: from patents to knowledge


  • Camus, Caterina
  • Brancaleon, Riccardo


The article describes a prototype software package that allows the user to create, organize and automatically update patent collections in order to manage companies' intellectual assets. Its tools help to monitor technological trends and support competitive intelligence strategies. The package automatically collects patents from the IP provider network, contextualizes and extracts all their structured and unstructured data and, using information extraction, text-mining, and statistical and clustering analysis, extracts knowledge. It enables a decision maker to analyze this knowledge and to build up a successful strategy.
