STICK: Analyzing trends in science & technology innovation
The Science of Science and Innovation Policy strives to understand the relationships behind innovation and how ties between organizations, individuals, and funding sources affect growth.
Our STICK project's goal is to overcome any bias towards popular or successful innovations by providing the much needed data and tools for analyzing innovations of all possible outcomes.
We integrate data collection tools for trade press articles, scientific literature, patents, and blogs; text processing and crowd-sourcing to automatically identify people, organizations, and products; and network analysis and visualization to highlight key trends, relationships, groups, and outliers.
This set of tools can be used to help students, scientists, and science and technology policy makers to understand and advance the process of discovery.
