Will SSD be cheaper than HDD? Tech forecast by Focus AI
In our study on Seagate, we analyze the debate over whether SSDs will become cheaper than HDDs. Using our AI classifiers to examine patent trends, we discovered that SSDs are improving more rapidly than HDDs. However, the current price gap remains significant, and our forecast indicates that while SSDs will eventually be more cost-effective, this is unlikely to happen by 2025, contradicting predictions from both Seagate and Toshiba.
How to build a strong investment strategy based on AI forecasting
Philips leveraged Focus' AI forecasting to improve its investment strategy in medical technologies. By analyzing over 146 million patents, Focus provided Philips with a detailed overview of the developmental history and future prospects of a key medical technology. This helped Philips make informed decisions on investment timing and understanding the competitive landscape, utilizing Focus' efficient and cost-effective technology forecasts. This approach proved more efficient than traditional, time-consuming analysis methods.
How to create a killer patenting strategy using AI: Rouse case study
Rouse, a management consulting firm specializing in intellectual property, collaborated with Focus to develop a comprehensive patenting strategy for its clients. Facing challenges in effectively gathering IP intelligence across diverse domains, Rouse utilized Focus' custom AI classifiers. This approach allowed Rouse to take control over AI-assisted patent searches, bypassing the limitations of traditional Boolean and unsupervised machine learning methods.
Could Kodak have predicted that digital photography would dominate over films?
The Focus case study on Kodak demonstrates how AI predictions could have helped the company foresee the dominance of digital photography over film as early as 1983. Using AI classifiers for film and digital imaging technologies, Focus' analysis showed that digital was improving faster than film, indicating an impending disruption. This insight, available almost two decades in advance, could have allowed Kodak to adapt before the decline in film sales began.
