Amazon's Patent Deployment Strategies for Artificial Intelligence and Its M&A Analysis (Pre-order Report)
Published: October 24, 2018 Content info: 24 Pages


Amazon Technologies started as a pure online bookstore. Since its establishment, Amazon has implemented the philosophy: Put the customer first, and has continued to put strategic investments in its own technology research and development, new startups, mergers, and acquisitions. Over the years, it has successfully transformed from an online bookstore into a leading online retailer and cloud-based service provider. In recent years, it has spared no effort to invest in AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology with an aim to seize the first-mover advantages by applying AI to non-AI applications in emerging fields. This report provides an overview of the technology and patent deployment of Amazon pertaining to AI; analyzes Amazon's patent portfolios in neural networks, genetic algorithm, knowledge engineering, fuzzy logic, machine learning, and natural language processing; examines its recent investments and M&A activities to better understand the company's strategic planning forthe development of AI in the future.
