THE QUANTIC COMPUTER LANDSCAPE
We realize two types of landscapes; technology and market. Each of them are divided into sessions which have panels according to the data collected and the technological question asked.
In this article, we are presented to you our new “Quantic Computer Landscape” and its methodology which can be classified as technologie landscape, as it is using patent information to be built.
Methodology we use to create these landscapes:
Our data analysts have used public software to generate a list of 6 patent numbers related to Quantum Computer. This list has been used to create a dataset of 1000 patents from Ambercite/Amberscope with their AI similarity engine using patent citation network.
The results were exported in a CSV file, which can be directly imported into our landscape Viewer Intuinet. Each import specifies the relation between the datas. In this particular case, each patent has an owner. We are then able to highlight the number of them per owner visually and quickly see the pattern with strong entities.
Following the importis process, the data can be explored and visualised by panels. The software can provide up to 4 panels simultaneously, in the same session.
Quantic computer landscape description:
The panels are captioned with yellow for countries, blue for companies and gray for patents.
Each panel answers to a technological question about a patent sector. They suggest the ‘popularity’ of a patent based on such factors as the forward citation count, backward citation count, family members, how recent the forward citations are, and how interconnected the citations. This value is given by Ambercite for each of them. The index is called Amberscore.
The first panel, at the top left of the picture, represents the patents of all impact sizes in all countries except the US. You will then be able to view the companies in the quantum computer sector as well as the patents they hold.
The second panel shows the patents of below average impact size only in the US. In this visualization, you can learn about the different companies and their patents that have a low popularity..
The third one, the most interesting, represents patents of above average impact size only in the US. It allows you to find the different companies and their patents having a high popularity...
We can see from the first visualisation that in the world, the largest companies in quantum computing are Ellis Frampton, Univ Chicago, Biogy inc, Siemens AG, Gen electric, Bionopoly LLC, Lockheed corp et Dwave Sys Inc.
In China they are Origin Quantum computing tech co, Univ Shanxi, Shanghai Inst optics and fine and Tencent Tech Shenzen co.
Finally in Japan, we found Nippon telegraph and telephone company and Toshiba corp.
In the US, we can see the different companies that are high and low in popularity on their patents. The highest companies are Nvidia corp, Cisco tech inc, IBM, univ Michigan state, Hewlett packard development, Sharp lab of America, Lucid information technology, Amazon tech, Microsoft corp, Altera corp and Microsoft technology licensing.
We also see that the two biggest patents are Array of quantum systems in a cavity for quantum computing owned by IBM and Quantum key distribution by Qinetiq LTD.
