Open Analytics

Open source tools and tutorials that help you learn how to create your own analysis of patent data.

What is Open Analytics?

Patent data contains a treasure trove of information that is of great value to innovators, business leaders and policy makers. Open analytics is all about unlocking that treasure trove using open source tools. The insights that you create, share and develop using open analytics support new innovations, more informed customers, and help us engage and promote data transparency/innovation in new constructive ways. Not only does this bring more intelligence to technology trends, but when new insights are shared, it also has the opportunity to bring powerful advancements to improve people lives across the globe.

A huge thanks to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) for the time and effort developing this material which can be found at https://github.com/wipo-analytics.
