AI Search Enhancements
  • AI Recommender – Top up your Boolean searches!

Get AI to show you records that may be missed by your Boolean search! The recommender will suggest you contextually similar records that did not match your Boolean query but are relevant to current search query.

The AI recommender helps you ensure you haven’t missed anything out and also give you further inputs to refine your query!

  • Easily jump to the paragraphs that contributed to the semantic score

We have replaced the older KWIC view to directly show the relevant paragraphs in full-text. You can click on the AI score itself to view the paragraphs one by one or use the KWIC option. The matched paragraphs are underlined with shades of green based on their relevance to your input.

  • Support for higher number of results

The AI search now supports showing a higher number of records (200, 300, 500) on the results page. Within AI search settings you will see an option to increase the results count.

9 August 2023

Completely Rebuilt Semantic Search giving vast improvements in result precision

We have completely rebuilt our AI-driven semantic search from the ground up. By leveraging the latest transformer based LLM models and training them for patent data we have been able to get massive improvements in the semantic precision (and recall too!).  

Use the semantic search form to search by text or by patent. If you have the Advanced AI package or if you are a ProX user, you can set the Context-awareness to High for better results. Note: Even with the setting at default value (Low) the results are far better than the older semantic search. Experience precise and relevant patent searches with our AI-driven semantic search.

To understand why a result scored higher, you can use the KWIC option to view snippets from the full-text of the record. Each snippet comes with a similarity score to help give you an idea of its overlap with your input text.

6 June 2023
New Invalidity and Infringement search options

When searching for similar patents from the new semantic search interface you can specify if you directly instruct the engine to conduct an invalidity or an infringement search. With this added instruction the semantic engine gives more precise results accordingly to each type of search. 

Note: Available with the Advanced AI Package or in ProX edition

6 June 2023
Semantic reranking of your Boolean query results

Sometimes you know a record that is related to the technology you are searching, but you still need to conduct a complex search to find other closely matching records. Running a similarity search can yield similar records but may not contain the exact set of terms that you want in Claims (for example). 

The new semantic rerank option allows you to reorder your Boolean search results based on their similarity to a particular record and therefore making it very easy to detect other highly relevant records from within your results. Simply select a relevant record (upto 3) and run the Rerank to view the most similar records on top. 

 Note: Available with the Advanced AI Package or in ProX edition 

6 June 2023
Share Complete Search Scripts with colleagues in your company easily

A new clone option within the search scripts window allows you to copy the complete script in its exact state with your colleague (should also be a PatSeer user).  

This allows someone to pick up directly from where you left off or reuse the queries in the script in their own way. This helps avoid entering all the queries in the same order again! 

6 June 2023
Search Patent Litigation Cases data

A new litigation search form helps you search across Patent Litigation and Opposition case data from more than 12 jurisdictions.

Patent information for each case is also available and for most jurisdictions you can also view the case status. To dig deeper, you can view the patents in your search results right from there.  

Note: Available in ProX edition only 

26 May 2023

The enhanced AI Classifier now also supports predicting categories for any Journal/ NPL documents that you have imported within your project. Further, once the AI classifier has run on your project, you will receive an email with details such as total predicted values and a Category vs. Prediction Score table that summarizes the prediction cut-off threshold at which the records have been placed into the Category.

9 March 2023
Enable and view project data against search results

You can now view and set project metadata such as flags, ratings, comments, categories and custom fields against records appearing in your search results.

The project shortcuts feature has been enhanced to allow you to enable a project’s metadata on the search results page. Once enabled, you will be able to see the metadata values against each type of metadata for any record that is present in the project. You can further, add or modify the metadata right from the search result page itself.

Shared User Management made easy with new UI

When sharing multiple projects with different people, after a certain period, you are likely to forget what has been shared with whom. This new management screen gives you a combined view of all your sharing by grouping it by the shared user and thereby making it easy to un-share and remove shared connections that are no longer needed.

29 September 2022
Redesigned Flags with an added Flag color

The new record flagging interface reduces the number of clicks needed to select a particular flag for your record. Further, based on user feedback we have also added a new Yellow Flag to the existing Flags.

27 September 2022
Records annotations now enabled in Split View

Within Projects, if you are accustomed to using Split View for going through the full spec against a record, you can now directly select text and annotate them from there. This capability was earlier possible only in the detailed view but is now also enabled in the split view.

23 May 2022
Introducing Subprojects

Your main project can now be divided into various sub-folders called subprojects each of which can be individually shared with different colleagues with varying permissions. The subprojects retain all the project settings from the main project and so any custom field or categories you create are automatically inherited by the subproject. More importantly the patent shares the same value across each subproject it is present in.

With the patent metadata being common across subprojects, you can now create an internal knowledge management repository in which the main project acts as a “holding global project” for all the organisational fields or settings and the individual subprojects containing the competitive intelligence data. To learn more about how to leverage subprojects, contact your support or account manager.

23 May 2022
