Innovations Applied for IP Protection Recently

Innovations applied for IP protection tracks new noteworthy patent applications published recently in the Technology sector including ground-breaking technologies and the company’s technological and strategic shift towards adoption of new technologies.

Apple has patented a futuristic iDevice where flexible displays are bent to form side/edge display which can be used to display icons/notifications and can also function as virtual button/switches thus eliminating the need for physical switches.

Amazon want to take their voice interface to the next level by understanding a user’s sentiment when they speak to Alexa. The system detects user frustration and responds to a repeated user input by confirming an action to be performed or presenting an alternative action, instead of performing the action responsive to the user input. The system also detects poor audio quality of the captured user input, and responds by requesting the user to repeat the user input. The system processes sentiment data and signal quality data to respond to user inputs.

Meta has patented a method to determine user’s liking for particular brand. It (‘Meta’) wants to analyse the images we interact with in order to understand the brands / products we love, and in turn update taste profiles of each user. This invention relates to updating a profile of an online system user to include an affinity for an item based on an image of the item included in content received from the user and/or content with which the user interacted.at a particular location and then provide final landing authority, and can “wave-off” the UAV

Case Studies Involving Key Innovations

Spotlight

Microsoft Corp, Alphabet Inc and Intel Corp are amongst the top companies who are fastest in embracing disruption caused by emerging themes and creating value

GlobalData  captures news, deals, filings, jobs, patents, and social media signals etc. and gathers the activities around innovation-led initiatives supported in the respective organisations. Our analysis suggests that Microsoft Corp has been most upfront in adopting emerging technologies amongst its peers.

Cloud , Internet of Things and Big Data are the themes attracting most investment in the last five years

Data from March 2017 onwards

Note: GlobalData captures various data sets such as deals, filings, jobs, patents. Each data set score is combined (𝑥𝑠𝑐𝑎𝑙𝑒𝑑) to provide an overall weighted-average exposure score. The scores are then used to show the colors on the heat map and represent the level of exposure in which a darker shade represents higher levels of exposure while a lighter shade represents lower levels of exposure. Each cell in any respective column indicates the relative Company Investment Intensity of the ten tech themes compared across the list of companies for that theme.
