Panel Discussion: How do we validate patent metrics derived from semantic analysis?

There has been an explosion of development of semantic-based measures seeking to capture similarity across patents; novelty; disruptiveness, value or impact, etc. The panel will bring together researchers who’ve been working on these metrics to discuss questions such as: what is the relationship of these metrics to older ones based on, e.g., patent classification or citations; how should validation be structured (should people validate their own measures or should we try to create some kind of shared or over-arching validation process); what is the relationship between different modes of validation (e.g. correlation with exiting metrics, testing against subjective expert judgements, correlation with outcome indicators such as productivity or prizes)
