The concept of Concepts
Jul 14, 2013Patents describing the same core invention are sometimes filed in different application areas using varying terminologies. Hence, a generic keyword search does not always suffice to identify all the relevant patents. Relecura incorporates elements of text analysis and machine learning, to extract key concepts from the patent documents and relates them to each other. These concepts are also provided as an additional facet that can be used to search for relevant patents. Concepts are a recurring theme in Relecura and are used not just for searching, but in features such as our Topic Maps (covered in an earlier blog post). Anthony Trippe (@atripper) has reviewed Relecura on his popular blog at Patinformatics, LLC. Read what he has to say about Relecura's use of concepts and its other key features.
