Ambercite is very proud to be associated with the latest Griffith Hack NPA white paper Clearing the fog: Patenting trends for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, which was released today. In this white paper Griffith Hack, working very closely with and applying the Network Patent Analysis (NPA) process developed by Ambercite, analyses over 48,000 patents to fiilter, cluster and rank these patents. Two separate NPA maps accompany the white paper, one NPA map showing an cluster focused patent landscape map, and one NPA map showing a time scale patent landscape map.
Clearing the fog is also the best publically available demonstration yet of the powerful ability of NPA to precisely cluster patents with a precision unavailable with keyword or IPC patent code clustering. While we have seen this precise clustering for the majority of the confidential NPA client studies we have delivered, this degree of clustering is stronger than in our previous two NPA white papers on hybrid car and smartphone patents.
Clearing the fog also also demonstrates several other features of NPA:
- the power of associative searching (page 5)
- the value of a NPA time scale map (page 15, and available as a separate download)
- the concept of foundation patents (page 16)
- the ability of NPA to identify what could important future patents (page 17)
- and even some natural limitations of NPA (page 21)
As well as a detailed discussion of the leading patents, patent owners and inventors in the area of Alzheimer's disease, an increasing important disease which may impact many of our elderly and the people that care for them.
