IBM Sics Cloud on Drug Patents
Need to scour the world’s patent databases for a particular chemical compound? There’s a cloud for that. IBM has released the Strategic IP Insight Platform (SIIP), a cloud-based data analytics system designed to give a shot in the arm to businesses’ intellectual property efforts. The system searches the US Patent and Trademark Office, the European Patent Office and the World Intellectual Property Organization patent databases, as well as abstracts from MEDLINE, the US government’s scientific literature database.
