Most Cited TikTok Patents

WO2014068309A1 is the most popular patent in the TikTok portfolio. It has received 16 citations so far from companies like Amper Music, Shutterstock, and Blockchain Asics.

TikTok’s parent firm, ByteDance, describes themselves as a company that uses artificial intelligence to improve mobile user experiences. A ByteDance proprietary algorithm begins curating and refining a “For You” page as soon as a new user checks in. As Bytedance’s algorithm ingests the text, content, faces, length, topic, and other aspects of each video a user engages with, the For You page “is always learning.” TikTok ranks first in average session duration among social networking applications, indicating ByteDance’s investment in AI-driven user engagement. Every day, AI capabilities have enabled effective gamification of TikTok through global challengers.

TikTok’s algorithms quickly learn individual tastes by tracking users’ likes, comments, and time spent on each video on the consumer side. On the producer side, AI streamlines video editing by recommending music, hashtags, filters, and other upgrades that are currently trending or have proved to be popular.

However, the corporation isn’t satisfied with the same straightforward short-form videos that have made it successful in the past. It is planning to include Augmented Reality, e-commerce and longer-form video.

Despite legal and other obstacles, ByteDance is constructing an empire of apps for a new generation and pushing the boundaries of traditional digital entertainment. If ByteDance can continue to accomplish its aim of creating a borderless firm with game-changing technology, it might lead to the formation of new borderless companies and push other developing market tech entrepreneurs to branch out as well. In the end, this tendency will result in a broader range of digital offerings for consumers and businesses around the world.
