Technology disrupts many sectors, perhaps none more so than automotive
5th June 2018
AI throws light on Automotive industry’s billion dollar intellectual property
Aistemos, the market leader in AI-powered patent analytics, today published Automotive Patent Trends 2018, the definitive guide to who’s protecting what across electrification, autonomy and connectivity.
This new source of competitive intelligence is made possible by Cipher Automotive, the first analytics platform to focus on the automotive sector. Cipher Automotive, enables research and development (R&D) and strategy teams to comprehensively assess developments across the industry and the world in a matter of seconds.
“Technology disrupts many sectors, perhaps none more so than automotive,” said Nigel Swycher, CEO, Aistemos. “The future of mobility depends on collaboration and time to react. Cipher Automotive will pave the road ahead with essential information. Better data means a greater understanding of global technology trends and better decisions by the automotive industry.”
Developed in collaboration with OEMs and their suppliers, Cipher Automotive uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to analyse technical information contained in over 100 million patent documents, registered to over 1 million owners across over 100 countries. Subscribers are able to search and analyse by company, technology and geography in order to make informed decisions in support of their investment and market strategies.
Why patents are important
Patents are a unique way of being able to assess the output of an organisation’s research and development. Cipher Automotive is able to map all patents globally against over 200 technologies in an industry-defined taxonomy.
Delivered on-line, Cipher Automotive can present and manipulate data to understand who is investing more in the protection of key technologies and support the analysis to a very granular level.
“Automotive technology dates back to the 1890s, and the industry has been innovating ever since. While there will be epic levels of disruption in the next decade, it is imperative that decisions are made with the best information about the technology landscape. Cipher Automotive is intended as the definitive resource in this area” added Swycher.
