The Landscape of Machine Learning from a Patent Perspective
A look at the machine learning patent landscape shows that Microsoft and Alphabet currently hold the most - and highest quality - patents. However, the data also shows that leadership positions can change very quickly in this rapidly developing technology field. In particular Chinese companies are among the most prolific filers in this space, nevertheless their patents fall short in terms of impact and quality.
This analysis, conducted on the LexisNexis PatentSight patent analytics platform, in collaboration with ip-search, a commercial patent search service provider of the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property, provides a detailed look at the machine learning technology landscape, from a patent perspective.
