Higher Hit Quality and Quantity

In, a field-based Boolean search is combined with a semantic similarity-based search. The Boolean search mask contains full-text keyword search as well as a search for bibliographical patent data.

The semantic search is a novel approach, where patent families can be found by freely entering any descriptive text you choose, into the search mask. Advanced statistical techniques on the basis of linguistic analyses are applied to extract the key concepts of the specified text and then to search for documents with the same concepts.

By means of the semantic search, you will be able to find relevant conceptual hits, which you would have missed using just Boolean search. Thanks to the unique combination of Boolean and semantic searches, you are able to significantly increase the amount of your hits and improve their Quality.

Save time with family-consolidated hit-lists

One essential feature for saving time during your patent searches is the family consolidation (by INPADOC rules) of the resulting hits. You do not need to correlate single patents by their priorities manually; this is done automatically by the application.

The complete family is displayed in a clear and concise layout, containing all the key information elements of this patent family.

The users can individually select different viewing formats of the hit-list, showing more or less detail information of the patent family members (representative main drawing, descriptions, abstracts, citations, etc.)

As an option can be offered as an integral part of infoPatent, the in-house patent information system of infoapps.
