Chinese companies have increased the number of U.S. patents they’ve received by tenfold in less than 10 years, another sign that the world’s second-largest economy is succeeding in its strategy to transform from Silicon Valley’s factory to a powerhouse of research. Chinese inventors received 11,241 U.S. patents last year, a 28 percent increase over the same period in 2016...
The lack of women in science and innovation fields is not simply a question of fairness or equality; it suggests that the economy is missing out on important potential for productivity growth. The fact that just 16 percent of patents are granted to women demonstrates in some ways how we may be leaving future Grace Hoppers out of the world of innovation and hence missing their insights and inventions.
Once regarded as a copycat, counterfeiter and patent infringer, China is now threatening U.S. IP superiority with a flood of inventions and a superior system for resolving disputes. Until now, the U.S. was the go-to nation for new ideas; the defacto innovation leader.
