  • 15. 3 billion users worldwide With nearly 3 billion users worldwide, the mobile phone has become the most personal and ubiquitous communications device. However, the lack of a collaborative effort has made it a challenge for developers, wireless operators and handset manufacturers to respond as quickly as possible to the ever-changing needs of savvy mobile consumers. Through Android, developers, wireless operators and handset manufacturers will be better positioned to bring to market innovative new products faster and at a much lower cost. The end result will be an unprecedented mobile platform that will enable wireless operators and manufacturers to give their customers better, more personal and more flexible mobile experiences.

Peer to Patent Peer to patent From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search The Peer-to-Patent project (also known as the Community Patent Review project) is an initiative that seeks reform of the patent system by gathering public input in a structured, productive manner. A pilot project in collaboration with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) completed its first year on June 15, 2008. On July 16, 2008 the USPTO announced the extension and expansion of the project until June 15, 2009. [1] Peer-to-Patent seeks to improve the quality of issued patents by connecting the USPTO to an open network of experts online. Peer-to-Patent is the first social software project directly linked to decision making by the federal government.[citation needed] Other patent offices planning pilot programs include the UK Intellectual Property Office and the European Patent Office. If the pilots meet their goals, this form of public peer review could become standard for all patents submitted to these offices. [2]

  • 32. Market Need  The continuing need to make critical scientific and technical decisions despite the exponential growth in the quantity of potentially relevant information. The increasing number of non-english language publications relevant to a growing, global R&D community. The difficulties that traditional information and technology providers have to deliver relevant solutions with their closed/proprietary product technologies.
  • 33. Our Value Proposition  bridging the gap between current professional By information retrieval products and state-of-the-art information science research, Matrixware is able to focus on solving problems that are typically out of scope of traditional products and services. By leveraging our network of experts, Matrixware´s professional services team is able to identify and produce solutions with a high impact on client workflows.
  • 34. Our Philosophy Open science, open business and mass collaboration are rapidly becoming the norm. With open source technology at the base of our solutions, Matrixware is working to extend information retrieval in ways that werethought to be unachievable. The shared benefit: a synergy between professional needs and scientific breakthroughs.
  • 35. Matrixware Innovation Cycle The Matrixware innovation cycle is a way of ensuring a sustainable mechanism to leverage the increasing needs of the professional information retrieval community.
  • 36. Matrixware Community  “Our aim is to bring experts and opinion leaders from universities, businesses, information providers, creative IT experts and scientists together in order to solve professional information retrieval challenges with innovative methodologies.” Francisco de Sousa Webber, General Manager Matrixware and Head of Matrixware Community Group  Matrixware and C. J. quot;Keithquot; van Rijsbergen (Professor and leader of the Information Retrieval Group in the Department of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow) initiated the Information Retrieval Facility (IRF) platform in 2007 in order to improve the global transfer of knowledge between information professionals and information retrieval scientists. The IRF is an open research institute active in the field of applied information science, where leading experts develop new methods for working with complex data.
  • 37. Science and R&D  “Centered on a scientific approach to information retrieval, we apply the latest research results meaningfully through state-of-the art systems engineering and cutting-edge information management techniques and technologies.” Dominique Maret, Vice President Science, Matrixware Information Services  areas of activity: Key • semantic extraction and annotation • statistical machine translation (especially Asian languages) • deriving ontologies, taxonomies and classifications • document and error correction • content validation (also meta data) all made possible by our capability to do high through-put processing in a high performance computing environment.
  • 38. Professional Services & Support  Our core business is helping innovative companies and R&D organizations to “ find and implement information retrieval solutions via our professional services team.” Mike Baycroft, General Manager Matrixware and Head of Matrixware Commercial Group  Professional Services Our Professional Services team is a cross-functional, global organisation designed to identify customer needs and to provide solutions based on our existing portfolio, network of solution providers and development teams. Practically speaking, Professional Services work by guiding the entire problem-solving process with the client through the documentation of functional requirements. This is followed by the coordination of the planning, designing, crafting, executing, delivering and operating of custom solutions. Our training capabilities are focused on the on-going operation and maintenance of delivered solutions for our clients as well as for our own internal and community activities.
  • 39. Professional Services & Support Demonstration of our data capabilities  Our experience in building the Matrixware data repository demonstrates our ability to deal with millions of patent documents using agreed and ad hoc international XML standards (e.g. WIPO ST.36 and its various national dialects), including our own standardised harmonised extensible XML version. Key skills learned are harmonising and standardising meta data into a sophisticated database domain model. We have embarked on an innovative architecture in database design combining years of know-how from an all-star team that joined Matrixware from leading organizations that understand content. This impressive mix of skills and technology culminated in the Matrixware data repository.
  • 41. Conclusion With the philosophy of Open Source and the development of a Community in the professional information business and information retrieval area we expect to extend the boundaries of research in ways that are currently thought to be unachievable.
