The launch of IdeaScout is a project that's been in the works for nine years. We took a moment to chat with its ideator (and founder of Innography), Tyron Stading, about the project, and why he thinks it's a game-changer for innovation management and how ideas will be brought to market in the future.

Recent developments are proving that the virtual reality industry is succeeding in making immersive tech more affordable for consumers. But while it's more commonly thought of as belonging to the gaming and entertainment realms, it is used in many other areas, including the military, education, and medicine. No doubt, it's well on its way to complete world immersion. But for now, let’s take a close look into one of its original, and more whimsical, uses—an area that is (for good reason) being heavily invested in: augmented reality gaming on mobile devices.

As our planet is expected to reach 8.5 billion people by 2030 with 60% of them living in urban areas, it's estimated that we would need the resources of two planets to sustain our current lifestyle. Though we are making progress towards Mars, it's safe to say it won't be "move-in ready" by 2030. How will we make-do with our one and only planet? The short answer: a global collective and conscious effort toward sustainable and responsible urban planning and infrastructure and smart use of technology and resources. The big question: can we achieve it?

There’s been a whole lot of talk about Mars lately. Much more than in the past, now that a wider and more diverse group of innovators are putting massive brainpower and dollars into making space accessible to the general population. A mission they will accomplish by making it both cheaper and safer.

There’s never been a lack of innovation in the automotive industry. But whereas in the past it relied heavily on mechanics and engineering, today’s R&D and patents rely on the kind of technology that has the potential to shift who the entire industry belongs to. With self-driving cars and digital dashboards, the only thing that seems set in stone as far as what a car can or should be is that it gets you from point A to B. The question of how it does that is where all the innovation is happening.

Multi-million dollar decisions are never without risk, but basing them off questionable data is simply Russian Roulette. Getting to “good enough” or the “right” intellectual property data upon which to make decisions can be extremely time consuming, complex, short-lived. So either you’re wasting time correcting raw data from global patent offices or you’re making decisions on data that is rife with spelling errors, doesn’t reflect patent reassignments, and doesn’t account for M&A activities.

One of the perks of working at an IP analysis software company is the fascinating info we often gather on some of the coolest modern technologies. Our recent patent research on autonomous robots and manned spaceflight provides deep insights into the present state and future strategies of players in these cutting edge industry sectors.

It’s the nature of the beast. Patent documents from different countries are plagued with dirty data. And the more active the company, with patents, or inventor activity, the higher the likelihood for varied spellings and the dirtier it inevitably gets.
