IBM Tops USA Patent Lists in 2018 by Earning a Record 9,100 Patents with Blockchain as Focal Point

    IBM continues to make a mark in the U.S. patents list by topping the list again, for the 26th consecutive year. Reports from Armonk, N.Y. on January 8, 2019, indicated that the IBM inventors outdid themselves last year by receiving a total of 9,100 patents by the close of the year.

    According to reliable sources, IBM proved to be the industry leader in areas such as quantum computing, security, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence. These are all industries in which the company received various patents for its inventions.

    IBM CEO, President, and Chairman, Ginni Rometty stated that the company is committed to being an industry leader in the technological world. It hopes to be able to help change the way the world solves, as well as how it gets to solve some of its recurring problems, including problems that people may not even have started to think about.

    Ginni went on to state that these inventions were aimed at benefiting their customers and clients, particularly in areas where IBM has proved to be the ultimate leader, e.g., business security, blockchain infrastructure, cloud solutions, and artificial intelligence solutions.

    A closer look at all the patents received last year shows that many of their patents were related to pioneer advancements in various technological fields. As mentioned above, many of these patents were in quantum computing, the blockchain, and security for businesses.

    The industry-leading record of 1,600 patents issued to IBM in the last year happened to touch on new techniques and methods in which artificial intelligence could be deployed to help the human population converse much more easily. Others were on new methods that could be used to help better protect the earth’s waterways and lakes.

    Artificial intelligence has also been playing a major role in the over 1,400 security-related patents that were granted to inventors linked to IBM. Some of these patents touched on artificial intelligence powered security approaches that can be used to combat computer-based voice phishing.

    IBM Patents

    Some of the patents that were granted to IBM in the past year included:

    • The Project Debater. IBM stated that this was one-of-a-kind artificial intelligence system designed by the IBM research team that can be used to debate humans on various complex world topics. The inventors were able to patent a method that can be used to utilize machine learning in identifying evidence in unstructured data that may help support or oppose a given statement that may be under consideration.
    • The inventors were also able to patent an artificial intelligence scheme that could be used to monitor, illustrate, and identify perpendicular heat gradients and profiles that can distress aquatic life in seas and oceans.

    2018 also saw IBM inventors receiving more than 2,000 patents for cloud-based computing solutions. One of these patents was for a specialized monitor that can be used with a virtual machine based on unikernel. It is an approach that is meant to make it easier for users to move data from one application to another across the cloud.
