Identifying the Innovative Potential of New Ideas
ApplicationThe starting point of each innovation is an innovative idea. It is important to identify ideas with innovative potential by time.
Many innovations fail because ideas with low innovative potential are selected as starting point.
Solution: Here we present an approach for automatically extracting innovative technological ideas from textual information. Therefore we firstly define characteristics of innovative ideas, we secondly extract ideas from textual information using the idea mining approach and we thirdly analyse these extracted ideas concerning the characteristics of innovative ideas.
Approaches and case studies are published in
