Using AI to make sure you find more important patents

One of the biggest challenges of modern patent searches is filtering out the few relevant ones from standard, complex, and semantic keyword searches. While these searches do a good job in finding all related patents, they lack the finesse to identify the truly relevant within the related category. Using natural language processing and machine learning the Averbis Patent Monitor can tackle this challenge.

To show the validity of this approach we were happy to see that Villa and Wirz (2022) (Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property) used the Patent Monitor in their research paper on using artificial intelligence to complement semantic and complex keyword searches for patents. One of the key findings was that next to the general time savings the Patent Monitor offers, it correctly identified relevant documents that otherwise would have been missed in 2 out of 5 tests. Therefore, they conclude:

“In the opinion of the authors, this is a strong indicator for the capability of the supervised machine learning system used in the present study to identify potentially relevant documents.”

This shows that using the Patent Monitor, and through that artificial intelligence, does not only potentially save you a lot of time but at the same time makes sure you find more relevant results compared to semantic and complex keyword patent searches.

With our open APIs, it has never been easier to benefit from the Patent Monitor’s capabilities for all types of users, from patent attorneys to IP service providers to major corporate IP and competitive analytics departments.
