1% of patents cause almost all technological progress

1% of patents cause 92% of the technological progress. In other words, very few patents are extremely important while most hardly contribute. Focus has developed an algorithm that can measure technological importance so you can focus your attention on the patents that matter.

Only the best technologies get applied commercially

Most patented technologies end up never being used in commercial products. Technologies are often shelved immediately after invention and never get used. Focus can help you identify those technologies that have had a significant impact on their technological domain and a high likelihood of commercial application.
