Question will be resolved using Microsoft Academic Graph data from the OECD AI Policy Observatory’s data on AI research. The link will take you to the “AI publication time series by country” page. Set the following parameters for the data:  
  • Quality Rankings: Include All 
  • Publication Type: Patent 
  • Scale: Absolute Number  
  • Country: United States 
See here for more information about the OECD’s methodology and the Microsoft Academic Graph data. Question will be suspended on 30 November 2022 and resolved when the OECD database is updated.   

Question clarification
Issued on 07/06/22 04:47pm
The lag between filing and publication mentioned in the methodology linked refers to the length of the approval process, i.e., once a patent application is filed, the process can take months before approval is granted and the patent is published. The data source (Microsoft Academic Graph) indexes patents by time of publication, not time of filing. Consequently, we do not expect significant additions to previous years' numbers, and we will resolve this question once data is first available for the full year 2022.
This question has been suspended.
