We can easily determine who the most important inventors are for any given company, and often times there’ll be a handful of inventors that are responsible for some of the key innovations in a company. We can also determine which inventors might be important by where they – the location of those inventors. Their geographic location would indicate whether they’re proximate to a major research facility or they’re perhaps located in a secondary facility. So we can also judge their importance to some degree by where they’re located.
