The key inventors visualization help you identify thought leaders in the industry by displaying inventors by invention and citation count.
This new assignee field takes the assignee information from only the latest “reliable” publication of the patent family, as opposed to combining all assignee information from each publication.
The result is a clear indication of who the current owner is.
Analysis users will notice a reduction in the number of machine translated assignee names, particularly for patent families containing Asian members.

Please send us any feedback you have on this new field.
