Patents and technical standards do not only disclose the inventions claimed or how to practice the relevant technical standard. To those that know how to look, patents and standards tell a story of technical innovation. The point to where industry, the academy, and society are heading. The astute observer will be able to map these trends and correlate them to both broader business and market trends as well as specific companies’ capability. These observations can then be transformed into a white space analysis that identifies areas ripe for short term research investments that will lead to longer term business and IP growth.
