Artificial Intelligence & Innovation

The field of artificial intelligence has advanced rapidly in recent years, but empirical research on the determinants and impacts of AI invention has not kept pace. To aid researchers exploring these issues, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) released the AI Patent Dataset (AIPD), which identifies which of 13.2 million patent documents published through 2020 contain AI. The AIPD is designed to integrate seamlessly with PatentsView data.

Artificial intelligence patent dataset (AIPD) and PatentsView data highlight Patents by Government Interest and AI Component Technology, 2000-2020


The USPTO's Artificial Intelligence Patent Dataset (AIPD) (13.2 million records, download link) "Identifying artificial intelligence invention: A novel AI patent dataset," published in The Journal of Technology Transfer, describes the machine learning model used to create the dataset. It also provides several examples to link the AIPD to PatentsView to explore AI patenting activity by companies and inventors.

Who is using the Data?

  • Inventing AI
  • Winner takes all? Tech clusters, population centers, and the spatial transformation of U.S. invention.
