OS02 Big Data Analysis for Intellectual Property R&D (IP R&D)
Sunghae Jun, Cheongju University, Korea
We propose big data analysis for IP-R&D in this session. Big data analysis refers to technology that utilizes large amount of structured or unstructured data sets for extracting its unique value and analyzing the results. This state-of-the-art technology can be applied to IP-R&D analysis. IP-R&D is a technology strategy focused on intellectual property. The concept of IP-R&D is defined as analyzing intellectual property portfolio before carrying out R&D, so as to dominate the target market in advance. Intellectual property is an excellent source for big data analysis since it contains a great number of data about technology, trademark, design, copyright, and so on. Particularly, patent has distinct features, which are objectivity, novelty, creativity, and industrial applicability. Since patent system aims to protect inventors, each patent has general bibliographic data and its own technical information. With the development of Internet, it is possible to access to a large amount of patent data easily through web sites. For these reasons, big data analysis of patent is very important for management of technology, especially forecasting, valuation, and research trends of technology. Existing methods of patent analysis, such as Delphi and technology road-mapping, have been depended on expert’s prior knowledge, so the results of the analysis were subjective and unstable. However, it is possible to utilize patent big data with objective methodologies nowadays since the data can be easily accessible. In this session, we discuss the objective methodologies of patent big data analysis, such as advanced statistical methods, data mining, text mining, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and so forth. Using these methods and techniques, we develop expert systems for patent big data analysis with many researchers’ objective models in their research papers published in this session. In addition it is expected that patent data can be analyzed more efficiently with big data science methodologies. So we also propose various types of methods to establish technology strategies for forecasting brand-new, emerging, and promising technologies in this session.

OS19 Biomedical Signal Analysis using Machine Learning and Deep Learning Approaches
Do-Won Kim, Chonnam National University, Korea
Since the first recording of biomedical signals, scientists have found various signal processing methods to quantify and interpret the data. Various signal-processing methods have uncovered information hidden in the signals, and this knowledge changed the way we approach, diagnose, and treat different diseases. Biomedical signals, however, are often hard to analyze because they are often unbalanced and nonstationary. Moreover, the condition and status of the individual, for instance, age, gender, medical conditions, or even mental status such as drowsiness, affects the signal, thus makes it more challenging to interpret the data. Therefore, statistical interpretation of the data is one of the most important fields in biomedical signal analysis. Machine learning help us to cluster and categorize the data to better understand the important characteristics of the data. Recent advances in deep learning now provide more insight into the data without prior assumptions of the distribution or without preprocessing methods. In this organized session, we promote the speakers and audiences to introduce recent machine learning and deep learning techniques and share their experiences that are actively using in biomedical signal analysis.
