I am a Natural Language Processing / Machine Learning person and I'm starting to explore the patent world.
Since there are huge repositories for patents, I was wondering if any other useful information could be extracted from there. Which patent-related question might be interesting for you? This can be anything from "Is there any trend/new concept/new industry which is emerging?" to "Can I know the intended use of the invention automatically?" to anything, really. Do you think something is lacking or is still not good enough?
I'm looking for any answer, no matter how simple or overcomplicated.
