What patenten documents do you have?

WO (wipo.int) US (USPTO) EP (EPO) GB (Great Britain) och CA (Canada)



What input languages are supported?

English and German



Does IPscreener automatically rank documents?

The most relevant document is shown at the top and then listed in descending order of relevance. The ranking buttons are used for creating your own reports and for optimizing further searching in a case. Hence, further matching is steered towards contents of ranked interesting documents (red, orange or green) and to avoid content of irrelevant documents (noise). 



Does IPscreener learn from previous cases?

No, IPscreener start fresh from each new idea that is entered. This ensures best performance as the tool optimizes each analysis on the text that is actually "input". Otherwise you risk to get optimizations that are biased by yesterdays searches, and lesser performance. 



Does IPscreener search in full text (i.e. not just the abstract)?

Yes, every screening procedure and matching is done against the fulltext of the documents in the IPscreener patent database.



Does IPscreener search in non patent literature? For example IEEE articles ?

The IPscreener performs screening of the patent data domain. However, the platform offers possibility to add other data sources, e.g. internal archived invention disclosures.



Does IPscreener adapt to rankings done in previous versions, e.g. match or noise to exclude such results that are not relevant?

Yes, the matching of new version is optimized according to rankings done in a case. Rating a document as "match" means the technology therein is almost identical to the query, a "relevant" rank indicates a document with a relevant solution partly overlapping the query, a "background" label refer to a general solution within the technical field and and "noise" indicates areas that should be excluded in coming matching procedures.



Tell me more about the IDS tool. What makes it unique?

When you have ranked relevant prior art found by IPscreener you simply click on the IDS export button to create USPTO IDS in PDF file. Thus, you do not need to patent related bibliographic data manually which both saves time as well as lower the burden of the administrative work.




Do you have a case study (ie results of prior evaluations) you can share?

IPscreener was best-in-test in the study comparing the 7 major semantic AI tools on the market, done by the Austrian Patent Officet and presented September  2018. We will be happy to share those results with you if interested.
