Random Patent Synthesis
July 7, 2007
Operating along the lines of my generalized synthetics muse, a piece of software that combined words from a database to form novel combinations, I’ve thought of a Patent Muse. This software would search the US patent office and randomly select two inventions which when juxtaposed may form a novel combination. As with my Random Muse, if the Muse and its output is not worthy of utilitarian consideration, then it may at least result in amusement.
If anyone would be interested in developing this with me, or has found something equivalent, as always, do tell.
