Do you know if inventor ids are used like ORCID ids by the inventor community


I wanted to ask whether you know if disambiguated inventor ids by PatentsView are used like ORCID ids by the inventor community? i.e. if they would reference on their profiles, resumes, that their PatentsView inventor id is xxxxx, like it is done with ORCID ids

Thank you very much in advance, with much appreciation

Not to our knowledge

Hello! This is a great question... We are not aware of inventors using our unique identifiers from the disambiguated inventor data to id themselves. It would be good to know if they do, or if anyone in the community knows of other data sources that offer unique identifiers for inventors that they opt in to themselves - we could add this to our resources page!

Thank you,
