Harnessing the Power of Patent Analytics – A Panel Discussion

Harnessing the Power of Patent Analytics – A Panel Discussion | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

It was my pleasure to moderate, and speak on a panel discussing patent analytics, and the impact it has on organizational decision making. Each of us were asked to comment on how patent analytics can be used to support decision makers with different agendas, and perspectives on the use of patent assets. So while each of us were talking about patent analytics in general there was very little overlap in our comments since we were providing specifics on the topic from a variety of different angles.

In an effort to understand the root cause of poor decision making, we looked at 360-feedback data from more than 50,000 leaders and compared the behavior of those who were perceived to be making poor decisions with that of the people perceived to be making very good decisions. We did a factor analysis of the behaviors that made the most statistical difference between the best and worst decision makers. Nine factors emerged as the most common paths to poor decision making.

Using the crowd to verify the news: Grasswire

There has also been a growing attempt to map and plot the way misinformation spreads through our various social networks.  For instance, a project launched this summer, and backed by the National Science Foundation and the US Army, aims to create a detailed understanding of the ways in which misinformation propagates.

A new tool that is taking a crowdsourced approach towards a similar goal is Grasswire.  Grasswire is a site that allows users to verify the validity of things they are reading online.  The site, which focuses specifically on breaking news, allows users to vote on topics in a style similar to that found on sites such as Reddit.

Video map of births and deaths shows rise and fall of cultural centres.

All roads lead from Rome, according to a visual history of human culture built entirely from the birth and death places of notable people. The 5-minute animation provides a fresh view of the movements of humanity over the last 2,600 years. Maximilian Schich, an art historian at the University of Texas at Dallas, and his colleagues used the Google-owned knowledge base, Freebase, to find 120,000 individuals who were notable enough in their life-times that the dates and locations of their births and deaths were recorded.

We fill our days with a combination of work and play. See how the average American spends their day through Retale's hourly interactive visualizations of a standard day in the USA. Sleep takes up a large portion of everyone's time, but it's in the waking life that really differentiates us. For instance, watch education evolve into work and then finally into leisure as we age. Or see which gender plays the largest role in household activities. With data collected from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, you see the demographic divisions in everyday American life

A Predictive Analytics Primer

A Predictive Analytics Primer | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

No one has the ability to capture and analyze data from the future. However, there is a way to predict the future using data from the past. It’s called predictive analytics, and organizations do it every day.  By understanding a few basics, you will feel more comfortable working with and communicating with others in your organization about the results and recommendations from predictive analytics.  The quantitative analysis isn’t magic—but it is normally done with a lot of past data, a little statistical wizardry, and some important assumptions. Let’s talk about each of these. (Tom Davenport)

The #1 cause of claims against Ontario lawyers practising in most areas of law is problems with lawyer-client communication. Fun to communicate with clients about: success (and our role in it); progress; winning; good news. NOT fun to communicate: failure (and our role in it); setbacks; losing; increase legal costs; bad news. The risk: Failing to promptly and appropriately communicate bad news (and therefore, failing to take steps to mitigate setbacks) exposes lawyers to claims.

Uncomfortable delivering bad news? Here are some tips that can make it a little easier:

New IBM Study Reveals 3 Key Characteristics of the Most Successful Companies

New IBM Study Reveals 3 Key Characteristics of the Most Successful Companies | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

 IBM Tech Trends study, “Raising the Game.” IBM evaluated the adoption landscape of four key technologies in the enterprise: big data and analytics, cloud, mobile and social, and compared today’s adoption with 2012’s between what they called “pacesetters” and “dabblers.” The fourth annual report says pacesetters are those who think these technologies are critical to their business success and adopt them before the competition. Followers see these technologies as strategically important but “generally trail pacesetters in adoption,” while dabblers are “behind, or at best, on par with competitors in terms of adoption, and their use of these technologies tends to be less strategic.”

DIY versus Using Others

DIY versus Using Others | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

One of the advantages you have when you’re doing competitive intelligence for your own use is that you already immersed in the problem’s origins. That is, you understand what is going on, what your needs are, and the issue that you will have to approach. If you are dealing with a third-party provider of CI, whether it’s someone down the hall or an outside private firm, you first have to brief them on what the issue is. They are not starting their work fully immersed in the issue, even if they work in the same company you do. In the context of CI processes within a company, there is an additional issue.

NGA's map to put a world of geospatial intelligence in one place

NGA's map to put a world of geospatial intelligence in one place | Strategy and Competitive Intelligence by Bonnie Hohhof | Scoop.it

The digital Map of the World will be the bedrock of the intelligence community’s information sharing. By 2018, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency envisions a seamless, dynamic Map of the World (MoW) that enables users across the Intelligence Community to visualize and access integrated intelligence content fixed to accurate and authoritative geographic features on Earth. Through the integration of GEOINT, navigation datasets, imagery and intelligence, this unified, online, geospatial, temporal and relational view of the world will provide a common frame of reference throughout the IC, bringing together multiple sources of information on any object of interest, delivered across multiple security domains and on multiple devices. NGA’s MoW is to serve as the foundation for multi-intelligence integration—the “geospatial bedrock” for all intelligence, information and knowledge—that can be customized by users as needed. It’s a big piece of the IC’s Intelligence Community Information Technology Enterprise plan for cloud-based information sharing across its 17 agencies.

Could Facebook Lead the Way in Hunting Misinformation?

attempts being made to both understand and detect the way misinformation spreads through social networks.  Many of these attempts have focused upon identifying influential nodes in a network, and indeed understanding whether those nodes are real or not, as these nodes are key to the spread of information. It was interesting therefore to see a slightly different approach taken by Facebook recently with the announcement of their satire tag.
