    I've recently come across an interesting resource which I'd originally seen back in 2010:
    Matt Might's "The illustrated guide to a Ph.D." describes a doctoral degree's proportional increase to humanity's overall knowledge base.

    links -
    1) Matt Might, 15 page PDF, archived on WayBackMachine, 2010 (images only)- https://web.archive.org/web/20100821045946/http://matt.might.net/articles/phd-school-in-pictures/IllustratedGuidePhD-Matt-Might.pdf

    2) MattMight.Net website, PhD School In Pictures, archived on WayBackMachine, 2010 (my favorite) - https://web.archive.org/web/20100815122612/http://matt.might.net/articles/phd-school-in-pictures

    3) Open Culture, article, archived on WayBack Machine, 2012 (includes reader comments) - https://web.archive.org/web/20120927232652/https://www.openculture.com/2012/09/the_illustrated_guide_to_a_phd-redux.html

    It seems that just as a doctorate may push at, and then break through, the boundary of human knowledge, thereby increasing the knowledge base, a patent (or a potentially patentable idea) similarly represents an increase in human knowledge, no matter how miniscule.

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) is everywhere, whether highly visible or found behind the scenes. The thread "Technology may replace 40% of jobs in 15 years" mentions ever-expanding applications of AI in many career fields and industries.

    As AI rapidly becomes entwined in more widespread applications, PatentBots brings the benefits of AI to Intellectual Property (IP) attorneys, providing proofreading services, USPTO statistics, and more ... which may help streamline the process of aiding inventors in obtaining a patent.

    The PatentBots website also presents a few free pages of information available to interested members of the public without having to signup or register.

    The PatentBots website has a prominent disclaimer regarding accuracy of statistics presented, and anyone's potential reliance on them.

    The website and services of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) have been undergoing extensive renovation.

    The YouTube channel USPTOvideo may be of interest:

    On the USPTO website, the first-time filer expedited program may also be of interest.

    Posted on the USPTO website, here: https://www.uspto.gov/about-us/news...stify-patent-and-trademark-process-early, is a study from Berkley which may be of interest. The focus of the study is "Persistence and the Gender Innovation Gap": https://www.haas.berkeley.edu/wp-co...stence-and-the-Gender-Innovation-Gap.pdf
