【数据图:告诉你乔布斯在想什么】最近有人想出了研究他如何思考的方法,他通过可视化苹果公司所有与乔布斯有关的专利,画出了一张巨大的专利地图,这张图清晰展示出苹果公司所有的专利都是围绕一定的核心及相关技术,而这些都与乔布斯有关,通过研究它们我们就能进入乔布斯的大脑。

 

A Map Of Every Patent Steve Jobs Touched

YOU MIGHT NEVER BE ABLE TO GET INSIDE THE ENIGMATIC APPLE FOUNDER'S HEAD, BUT THIS COULD BE THE NEXT BEST THING.

People are always trying to put themselves into the head of Applefounder Steve Jobs, to figure out how he thought. Unfortunately, Jobs was pretty inscrutable, but here's one fun way to at least figuratively get inside Steve's brain: to fly through a neuron-like mapping of Apple's many patents, many of which Jobs is credited with as an inventor.

After his death of pancreatic cancer in 2011, Steve Jobs left behind a library of design patents in his name, from a 1983 patent simply titled'"Personal Computer" to the glass cube of the 5th Avenue Apple Store. Along with various other Apple designers and engineers, Jobs has been co-named on at least 458 design or technology patents, a full third of which have been awarded posthumously.

That got self-described innovation mapper André Vermeij thinking. Looking to make sense of Apple's huge patent portfolio, he decided to visualize Apple's many innovations through their connection to Steve Jobs. Vermeij explains his visualization this way:

The visualisation above shows that Apple’s full technology portfolio is composed of clearly identifiable clusters of inventors and related technologies. The top part of the light blue cluster at the left consists of Apple’s industrial design team, led by Jony Ive – the bottom part is mainly composed of patents and inventors relating to mobile devicecomponents. Steve Jobs served as the key connector between the left and right parts of the network, by connecting the dark blue cluster at the right (which consists of all things related to user interfaces andoperating systems) to the design and mobile devices cluster. The red cluster at the right is largely focused on iTunes, while the small purple cluster on the far right is composed of Apple’s experts and patents indata encryption and security.

Basically, then, if this big nebula of patents represents Apple's brain, with all of its different lobes and hemispheres, and right in the middle is the stem, Steve Jobs himself. When Steve Jobs died, they may not have saved his brain, but that doesn't mean we can't still study it.
