IBM Watson Can Battle Against Patent Trolls

December 8th, 2011

I previously blogged about IBM Watsons’s crunching of a massive database of chemical compounds. Now, one possible application–sniffing out patent trolls.

Then there’s battling the patent trolls. SIIP is almost entirely about analyzing the state of play and producing actionable analytics. If a malevolent patent troll targets your company, SIIP could help you find prior art, or perhaps secure a protective licensing deal with an IP behemoth like IBM.

Legal applications? Go figure.
