DATA AND AI TRACK
8.00 – 8.40 Registration and welcome coffee
[2.0.] 8.40: KEYNOTE ADDRESS: “WHY WE NEED $100.000 PATENTS”
[2.1] 8.45 - 9.30 : HOW TO RIGHT SIZE YOUR PATENT PORTFOLIO
Adoption of data-driven analytics appears to happen quicker in environments of direct competition like athletics, while until recently the application of data-driven analytics by in-house IP departments seemed slow. Some very large, highly innovative and well-resourced companies are either growing their portfolios at slower rates or actively working to reduce their overall portfolio size. At Uber, you think this trend is not due to external forces, but instead marks an early-stage rejection of oversized portfolios and the beginning of an emphasis on portfolio quality, knowing the purpose of each asset and thriving for high portfolio efficiency.
