Akademische Institutionen & staatliche Einheiten
Zum ersten Mal erscheinen auch akademische Institutionen und staatliche Einheiten in der Liste. Die beiden, im Jahr 2012 genannten Universitäten kommen aus  Südkorea: die Pohang University of Science and Technology und das Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology. „Die Aufnahme von südkoreanischen akademischen Institutionen bestätigt die Rolle, die Regierungen bei der Unterstützung von Innovation spielen können, aber auch das längerfristige Potenzial der Zusammenarbeit von Unternehmen und der akademischen Welt bei der Verwirklichung von Ideen", sagt Hr. Brown.

Die beiden staatlichen Einheiten, die in der Liste aufscheinen, stammen beide aus den USA: u. z. die Departments of the Army und der Navy. Die Forschung weist darauf hin, dass die Regierung der USA stark in Innovation investiert hat, ganz besonders aber in Zusammenhang mit nationaler Sicherheit.

Molekülbasiert vgl. mit technologiebasiert
Die Top 100 Methodik favorisiert aufgrund ihrer Kriterien schnelllebige und äußerst wettbewerbsintensive Branchen, wie z. B., Computerhardware und Halbleiter, in denen die Produktlebenszyklen kurz sind und der technologische Fortschritt von den Konsumenten gefordert wird. Diese technologiegestützten Branchen wuchsen um 18 Prozent bzw. um 29 Prozent. „Das heißt jedoch nicht, dass nicht auch andere Branchen Innovation betreiben", sagt Hr. Brown. „Die Ausgaben für F&E in pharma/chemiefokussierten Branchen zählen zu den höchsten in der Welt. Zahlreiche Organisationen in diesen Sektoren sind extrem innovativ, aber sie halten sich an ein anderes Innovationsmodell."

Weltweite Verteilung
Die USA führen in diesem Jahr mit 47 weiterhin die Anzahl der Organisationen auf der Liste an, gefolgt von Asien mit 32, davon 25 aus Japan und 7 aus Südkorea. Die Nennungen aus Südkorea nahmen im Vergleich zum Vorjahr um 75 Prozent zu; zwei der Neuzugänge kommen aus der akademischen Welt und zwei sind wissenschaftliche Forschungszentren. Aus Europa stammen 21 Nennungen, wobei Frankreich am stärksten vertreten ist (13). Im Jahresvergleich nahm die Anzahl der Nennungen aus den USA und Asien zu, während sie aus Europa zurückgingen.

Untergliederung nach Branchen
Die Halbleiterbranche und die Hersteller von elektrischen Bauteilen führen 2012 erneut mit 18 vertretenen Unternehmen, um 29 Prozent mehr als 2011. Computerhardware nahm mit 13 Unternehmen in dieser Kategorie die nächste Stelle ein. Andere, nennenswerte Änderungen waren die Steigerung um 133 Prozent bei Vertretern der Automobilbranche (von drei Nennungen im Jahr 2011 auf sieben im Jahr 2012) und eine Steigerung um 40 Prozent bei den Herstellern von Transportgerät.

Methodik
Die Thomson Reuters 2012 Top 100 Global Innovator Methodik stützt sich auf vier Hauptkriterien: gesamtes Patentvolumen, Erfolgsrate bei der Patenterteilung, globale Ausbreitung des Portfolios und Bedeutung der Patente gemessen an Zitierungen. Die Peer-Review-Methode wurde mithilfe des Thomson Reuters Derwent World Patents Index® (DWPI), Derwent Patents Citations Index™, Quadrilateral Patent Index™ und Thomson Innovation®, der IP und Intelligence Collaboration Plattform, durchgeführt. Für die vergleichende Finanzanalyse wurde die Thomson Reuters Advanced Analytics for Deal-Making Plattform herangezogen.

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model.

P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
