Welcome to this website on historical U.S. inventor collaboration data-set.

This new data-set that holds information on historical inventor collaboration on US patents between 1836 and 1975.

Using search, matching and machine-learning techniques, I’ve been able to identify additional inventors (and their geographical location) on the HistPat (Petralia, Balland & Rigby, 2016) patents. I’ve also disambiguated unique inventors in this database. This allows us to track individual inventors through time, technology and geographical space.

Check out Data for more information.
