This week, we’re diving into the “Cybersyn US Patent Grants” dataset from the Market Place and use our own functions to interact with it.
The cool thing about user-defined functions (UDFs) is that they’re like your personal toolkit. You can use them to save a specific calculation, share it with the whole team, and even tweak it centrally when business needs change. And guess what? You can use them on public datasets, like the one from Cybersyn.
So, here’s the game plan:
- Grab the Cybersyn US Patent Grants dataset from the marketplace.
- Use Cybersyn’s SQL query to dig up all patents related to Nvidia (we’ve put a limit of 10 in there so as not to overwhelm you with the results):
- Create a function that gives a thumbs up (TRUE) or thumbs down (FALSE) based on this: The gap between
PUBLICATION_DATEcan be 365 days for “Reissue” patents and 2 years for “design” ones.
All clear? Let’s get to it!
