1 Converting Information Into Technology Intelligence
Bob Stewart Ron Kaminecki Thomson Scientific

2 Agenda Information vs. Intelligence
Converting Information to Intelligence Commonly available software tools Value-add tools provided by commercial search engines Text-mining & Data-mining tools Conclusions

3 Information vs. Intelligence
Who Inventor Patent Assignee What Abstract IPC When Application Date Publication Date Where Country Intelligence How does it work? Why are they doing it? What does it mean? How does it fit into the “big picture?”

4 Information vs. Intelligence
D a t a I n f o r m a t I o n I n t e l l i g e n c e Organize Analyze RANK Spreadsheets Charts Graphs Analysis Tools

5 Organize – Readily Available Tools
Simple Tools available from commercial search services Dialog RANK Microsoft Excel Create charts and summaries

6 Organize – Readily Available Tools
Questions answered (Information Generated) Top companies with patents in a technology (IPC, subject, chemical) Top inventors at an organization Technology trends Technology trends in other countries Identify subject experts from patents, scientific literature Track trends from news, press releases, business information

7 Organize Using RANK DWPI
SHAPE()MEMORY OR SUPERELASTIC OR SUPER()ELASTIC 2005:2007 Result = 2526 RANK PANAME

8 Organize Using RANK DWPI
SHAPE()MEMORY OR SUPERELASTIC OR SUPER()ELASTIC 2005:2007 Result = 2526 RANK PANAME

9 Organize Using RANK

10 Advantages of Online Tools
No additional software Relatively easy to use Inexpensive Usually a few cents (or less) per document RANKed Results can be easily imported into more sophisticated tools Microsoft Excel Microsoft Access

11 XML eXtensible Markup Language
Collect information once and reuse it in a variety of ways

12 XML Data Web Page Excel Spreadsheet Portal Access Database
Word Document Text/Data Mining Application RSS Data

13 Download Data as XML

14 Convert XML to Microsoft Excel

15 Information Derived from XML Output
Organized by Inventor Organized by Assignee The “Big Picture” Details in MS Word

16 Analysis of Patents by Application Year

17 Analysis of Patents by Application Year for Top Assignees

18 Analysis of Publication Country for Top Assignees

19 Alternate View of Publication Country for Top Assignees

20 Advantages of XML Download plus Microsoft Excel & Word
Both Excel & Word are readily available Organize & Analyze Relatively easy to use Pay once for data download in XML, then analyze as necessary at no additional cost Sophisticated graphing of results in Excel Enhanced readability in Word

21 Analyzing Data Mining Text Mining Information Visualization
Process of analyzing data from computers and other large relational databases (i.e. structured data) Text Mining Process by computer of extracting information from unstructured (i.e. natural language) text and making links to form new facts or hypotheses Information Visualization A visual approach to data analysis to reveal insights or unexpected relationships through lists, co-occurrence matrices, maps etc

22 Ah-ha!!! Analyzing Data Mining Text Mining Information Visualization
Process of analyzing data from computers and other large relational databases (i.e. structured data) Text Mining Process by computer of extracting information from unstructured (i.e. natural language) text and making links to form new facts or hypotheses Information Visualization A visual approach to data analysis to reveal insights or unexpected relationships through lists, co-occurrence matrices, maps etc Ah-ha!!!

23 Basic Analysis Tools Available in…
Thomson Pharma Web of Knowledge

24 Advanced Analysis Tools…
Aureka Thomson Data Analyzer Can import data from Dialog

25 Mining the Results of a Chemical Structure Search
InfoChem Search Engine retrieves substances where group occurs twice

26 Structure Search in DCR

27 Sampling of Results

28 102 individual compounds in DCR
MAP DCR Results to DWPI 102 individual compounds in DCR 416 patent records in DWPI

29 Import Results into Analysis Tool

30 Top IPC’s

31 Most Frequently Cited (Key) Patents

32 Most Frequently Cited (Key) Assignees

33

34

35 Mining… Important information can be mined from Patents
SciSearch/Web of Knowledge Inspec Biosis Embase News and business publications Gale Group PROMT Dialog NEWSROOM

36 Curcumin in SciSearch (TDA)

37 Curcumin in SciSearch (TDA)

38 Curcumin in SciSearch

39 Curcumin in SciSearch (TDA)

40 Curcumin in Web of Knowledge

41 Curcumin in Web of Knowledge

42 Curcumin in Web of Knowledge

43 Curcumin in Web of Knowledge

44 Curcumin in Web of Knowledge

45 Curcumin in Thomson Pharma

46 Thomson Pharma

47 Thomson Pharma (Smart Charts)

48 Curcumin in Gale Group PROMT (TDA)

49 Curcumin in Gale Group PROMT (TDA)

50 Conclusions Value add tools provided by commercial search services (e.g. RANK) enable easy, relatively inexpensive organization of data Readily available software (e.g. Microsoft Excel) enables visualization and entry to analysis More sophisticated tools (e.g. Thomson Data Analyzer) provide “ah-ha!!” moments
