Social network analysis of keyword community network in IoT patent data Kim, Do Hyun; Kim, Hyon Hee; Kim, Donggeon; Jo, Jinnam;
In this paper, we analyzed IoT patent data using the social network analysis of keyword community network in patents related to Internet of Things technology. To identify the difference of IoT patent trends between Korea and USA, 100 Korea patents and 100 USA patents were collected, respectively. First, we first extracted important keywords from IoT patent abstracts using the TF-IDF weight and their correlation and then constructed the keyword network based on the selected keywords. Second, we constructed a keyword community network based on the keyword community and performed social network analysis. Our experimental results showed while Korea patents focus on the core technologies of IoT (such as security, semiconductors and image process areas), USA patents focus on the applications of IoT (such as the smart home, interactive media and telecommunications).
