PatSeer - What's new and how we are continuously innovating to solve the real problems affecting

your patent research

Manish Sinha, Gridlogics

In the last three years, the PatSeer Database has grown by leaps and bounds in terms of its coverage, capabilities and user base. Join us in this one-hour interactive workshop to learn more about the product and why more and more users are shifting to PatSeer for their patent research.

We will also talk about our new edition - PatSeer Projects Enterprise and how it is redefining how large organisations organise and share patent and non-patent literature information across their internal and external stakeholders.

In this interaction workshop we will discuss:

  • What are the bigger problems affecting your patent research
  • What makes PatSeer unique
  • What's new in PatSeer in the past year
  • How Gridlogics responds to customers' feedback and how its rapid innovation cycle is helping users achieve far more from the database
  • What is PatSeer Projects Enterprise and how it redefines that way you currently manage and share patent and non-patent literature

We look forward to meeting you and showcasing how PatSeer is meeting the bigger challenges facing your patent research

Introduction to Cluster Searching - a second opinion in seconds

Doris Spielthenner, CEO Ambercite

No patent analyst or searcher can be a 100% expert in all required knowledge domains. This workshop shows you how Ambercite Cluster Searching can give you an objective second opinion on any search strategy or result set, in a matter of seconds. It is also a fast and easy search solution in areas that are hard to search for. Why? Ambercite leverages the distributed intelligence of patent examiners and applicants by building a big network of the world's ~150 million citation opinions and analysing them in a new and smart way to assess patent to patent similarity and patent importance.

  • Find critical patents missed by other techniques or tools.
  • Simply input a starting list of relevant patents
  • Results are ranked by similarity and can be easily screened and exported
  • Licensing opportunities can be quickly found

Know more than your US counsel: eight categories of USPTO statistics that are of critical Importance to non-US companies

Christopher Holt , Vice President of Patent Analytics in LexisNexis

Companies outside the US commonly fail to take into consideration the broad range of performance variation from one US patent examiner to the next. Unfortunately, their legal representatives in the US also usually assume that every application has an equal likelihood of allowance, an equal likelihood of claim change, and an equal investment required for allowance. In this session, we will discuss new information tools in the market that make it possible to make informed decisions that lead to substantial cost savings and competitive advantage. Examples of such decisions include:

  • Determining whether a US application is even worth filing in light of its predicted prosecution outcome
  • Objectively evaluating whether an existing pending US application merits further investment
  • Evaluating whether a competitor’s pending application presents high or low risk
  • Objectively measuring the effectiveness of US legal counsel

Patent-based CI: 10 ways to learn about your competition

Stuart Lawless, Consultant IP Solutions, LexisNexis

Most discussions of competitive intelligence (CI) centre around its use in learning about a company's product strategy and features. What is often overlooked is the value of IP in intelligence gathering. An organisation's patents and pending applications can provide valuable insight, often years before a product reaches the market.

In this practical session we'll use patent-based CI to identify the top 10 things you can learn about your competition, from new market entrants to areas of competitive interest, non-practising entity activity and who is buying and selling technology.

We will also use at some unique intelligence on examiners to look at competitor applications– not just on the existence of competitor patents, but also on the value of potential claims!

14.00 - 15.00 hrs

Searching of the unsurpassed chemical content collection on new STN 

Robert Austin, Senior STN trainer, FIZ Karlsruhe

As the number of chemical structures disclosed in patents rapidly increases, it is imperative that IP professionals have the right tools for searching this information efficiently and reliably. The latest release of new STN introduced Markush structure search, so that new STN now provides unsurpassed coverage of generic and exemplified chemical structures.

The workshop will provide an overview of the outstanding search capabilities in the chemical databases from Chemical Abstracts Service and Thomson Reuters on new STN.

BizInt Smart Charts: Create IP reports and visualisations

Integrating data from the leading patent databases

John Willmore, VP Product Development and Diane Webb, President, BizInt Solutions

BizInt Smart Charts for Patents is used by patent searchers around the world to create reports from the leading commercial patent databases.

In this seminar, you will learn how BizInt Smart Charts can be used to create, customise, and deliver reports from a wide variety of sources. You will learn how BizInt Smart Charts helps you present unique content (such as the Family Status summary from Orbit.com and patent families and claims from Patbase) or summarise IP sequence results from GenomeQuest. You will learn how to integrate content from across platforms into a single report. And you will learn how to visualise the resulting report.

At 15:00, we will present a focused seminar on using the BizInt Smart Charts export on the new STN platform to create reports with BizInt Smart Charts for Patents. We invite you to join us after the STN seminar for a quick introduction to creating reports integrating content from Chemical Abstracts Service with data (including claims) from other databases on new STN.

The latest advances in translation technology for patent information

John Tinsley, Iconic Translation Machines

Last year in Warsaw, we gave an introductory seminar on how machine translation (MT) technology actually works. This seminar was very well received so we wanted to build on it again in 2015 because - as you well know - the need for patent MT is not going away yet many end-users still feel that the existing technology does not meet their requirements. While MT is not perfect, it is a maturing technology that has some very real practical applications within the patent community. To better understand the capabilities (and limitations) of MT, it would be useful to know exactly how this technology works. In this seminar, we will provide such an insight into the technology behind MT.

We will recap and build on some of the topics from last year, introducing some of the basic concepts of MT and describe how it has evolved over time. Following this overview, we will discuss the unique challenge of patent translation and the difficulties it presents to MT system developers. Importantly, we will then describe how we can evaluate whether MT is fit for purpose or not.

This talk will provide patent information specialists with a better understanding of how the technology works and some explanation of the results they see. This will help to explain phenomena such as why translation quality varies between languages and technical areas, and how they can make the most of the MT as it exists for their particular needs.

We will also go through some use cases from our own experience and look at questions such as when you should and shouldn't use Google Translate, what MT cannot be used for, as well as taking questions from the audienc

Workbench for Interactive Contrastive Analysis of Patent Documentation

Leo Wanner, Universitat Pompeu Fabra Barcelona

The presentation will provide an in-depth overview of iPatDoc technologies. iPatDoc is a research project aimed at semantic patent processing that goes beyond a "document-by-document" analysis. Based on the knowledge included in single patents, a highly connected concept space that interrelates inventions' components and features with visual techniques for interactive exploration is built. As a result, iPatDoc provides advanced software technology that offers valuable services to experts for understanding and comparing inventions and making their development explicit.

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme "Research for the benefit of SMEs".
