Rather than replace people, AI may be used to augment their abilities to achieve outcomes that are simply not possible without it. Iprova use artificial intelligence technology to augment the human ability to invent. By combining the latest developments in machine learning and natural language processing with a vast data set of up-to-the minute social, market and technology advances around the world, the technology helps our inventors make unexpected connections. This results in diverse, disruptive and commercially relevant inventions across a wide range of technical domains.
