TRIZ as a tool for Patent Analysis
In November, MyTRIZ hosted a conference and workshop in Penang with guest speakers, including Dr Sergei Ikovenko of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dr Song Mijeong of Samsung and Anatoly Guin, a Russian TRIZ educator.
Dr Sergei conducted a workshop on patent circumnavigation. He taught how TRIZ principles can be used to patent around existing competitive patent. Case studies from Hyundai and L'Oreal were shared. I have learnt various valuable lessons that I can use to advise my clients in patent search and analysis.
Dr Song Mijeong shared how TRIZ is practiced in Samsung while Anatoly Guin shared how TRIZ is implemented in schools to get children to be innovative. Each participants is provided with two books by him.
