The data is reproduces from the website. IBM researchers, including a team from IBM India Research Labs (IBM IRL), have developed a tool — Patent Quality Index — to address the issue of low-quality patents. Using the company’s advanced statistical and data analytics expertise, IBM has created a tool to assist patent applicants, examiners and the public to objectively assess the quality of patent applications and issued patents.

In recent years, low-quality patents — those with uncertain scope or dubious claims to scientific progress or technological innovation — has increased substantially, together with historic backlogs, creating uncertainty around intellectual property rights, and spawning increased speculation and litigation.
