Prediction of technological development from patent citation network

Vision:
- Identification of branches of technologies based on patent citation data
- Identification of patterns how these branches develop, such as rapid growth, shrinking, split and merges
- Identification of governing rules that are able to explain the pattern (backtesting)
- Come up with predictions for the near future – Which are the technologies of tomorrow?
