The Elijah J. McCoy Midwest Regional United States Patent and Trademark Office is hosting a Patent Open Data Conference. This conference will promote greater use and integration of patent information into business strategic planning by bringing together leading minds in data analytics, law, business, and government. See the invitation here. Best of all, it is FREE.
There are some great speakers and I look forward to being part of the conversation. We should all be encouraged that the USPTO is looking for ways to open up its data on a level playing field. Please show your support by attending in person or via WEBEX (however, no heckling while I am speaking, please!)
