IBM announced that it topped the patent race once again in 2012, marking the 20th year in a row that Big Blue has captured the top spot. IBM announced that it received a record 6,478 patents in 2012, the most patents awarded to any company for the year, according to the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. This marks the 20th consecutive year that Big Blue has topped the annual list of U.S. patent recipients. IBM’s 2012 patents come in areas such as analytics, big data, cyber-security, cloud, mobile, social networking, and software-defined environments, as well as industry solutions for retail, banking, health care and transportation, the company said. These patented inventions also will advance a major shift in computing, known as the era of cognitive systems.
