Michael E. Byczek

Patent Services

I conduct intellectual property research (patent, trademark, and copyright) on behalf of clients and have an excellent demonstrated record of communication with colleagues, business owners, engineers, and investors. These projects involve highly technical subject matter that includes the most innovative technologies in the world and time-intensive deadlines to submit registration material to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and direct communication with clients.

The research phase involves a deep assessment of a client's idea compared against millions of patents already registered in the U.S. and foreign agencies, pending applications, scientific journals, websites, social media, and various other sources to determine whether the innovation is truly novel and useful.

Python-based data analytics is used for a central repository about new inventions and business activity to make predictions about consumer habits, revenue growth, competition, infringement, and assessment of similar applications. Data science projects have utilized machine learning processes and common algorithms with the Python scikit-learn package for analysis and extraction of knowledge from ten million U.S. patent registrations.
