One step ahead with PatBase

Search, review and analyse East and West Patent Data with one powerful single database

This workshop provides an update on PatBase - the global patent family database - showcasing the extensive Asian patent coverage (including China, Japan and Korea), machine translations, and cross-lingual search options on offer. Live demonstrations will show the non-Latin search functionality benefits in PatBase, including native language search, side-by-side machine translations, combining Latin and non-Latin search results for deduplication and using the Japanese classifications to refine results.

Company profile

PatentSight offers strategic overviews of the IP landscape and a powerful drilldown on portfolios and technical developments. The Patent Asset IndexTM measures the strength of patent families and corporate portfolios. Our Business Intelligence platform has a wide range of applications including identifying key inventions, portfolio review, Key Performance Indicators, competitive benchmarks, etc.


PatentSight as a powerful analysis platform for scientific patent valuation

One of the metrics calculated in PatentSight on ALIVE patent families is the Recent Technology Relevance. A pilot study reveals that the use of this indicator allows the identification of publications that obtain a "citation rate" that is significantly higher than that of other patents in a specific technological area. The power of this approach is illustrated in the area of Exploration & Production (IPC=E21B) for a large set of patent families, active in selected Asian jurisdictions (CN, IN, JP, KR, and TW), from which a top 25 can be defined that is (seen as) potentially disruptive in that technology field.
