The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office will be offering the next webinar in its Patent Quality Chat webinar series from 12:00 to 1:00 pm (ET) on January 9, 2018. The latest webinar, entitled "Unlocking Open Data for our Patent Customers" will be hosted by Thomas A. Beach, Chief Data Strategist, and Scott Beliveau, Branch Chief of Advanced Analytics, who will discuss how attendees can leverage the recent release of new data in USPTO's Open Data Portal, which marks the first time that comprehensive data on over 4.4 million Office actions from the last several years has been made readily available to the public. The presentation will also highlight some of the USPTO's quality efforts using this data to improve the consistency of patent prosecution and the quality of issued patents.
