These days, governments and enterprises are analyzing trends in technology as a part of their investment strategy and R&D planning. Qualitative methods by experts are mainly used in technology trend analyses. However, such methods are inefficient in terms of cost and time for large amounts of data. In this study, we quantitatively analyzed patent data using text mining with TF-IDF used as weights. Keywords and noises were also classified using TF-IDF weighting. In addition, we propose new criteria for removing noises more effectively, and visualize the resulting keywords derived from patent data using social network analysis (SNA).
