Semantic search module

Minesoft add powerful Semantic Search module to PatBase

Minesoft has developed a new, powerful Semantic Search module for PatBase, the advanced search resource used worldwide by patent experts and professionals to research patent documents in-depth. In addition, Minesoft has added it to the user-friendly PatBase Express, used across corporations, making it easier to unlock information in the full text of millions of patent documents. Now PatBase will unearth hidden patents that could be missed using a regular keyword search. The Semantic Search option identifies relevant concepts from any given text-based query and suggests corresponding associated technology areas for the patent families identified; complimenting keyword and patent classification searches by locating additional pertinent documents.
The user remains in control of the process by selecting concepts of interest, adding new concepts and selecting suitable technology areas. The module improves search accuracy by using the contextual meaning of terms and the searcher’s intent to generate ever more relevant results.

Robert Poolman, Global Innovation Senior Manager at Minesoft, added: “The new Semantic Search module in PatBase provides an attractive alternative approach to uncover relevant patent information to the use of keywords or precise patent classifications. We believe this is going to benefit not only occasional users, who are looking to get a more focused starting point into the patent world, but also very experienced patent research engineers and chemists, as a way to expand on and interrogate a given subject. Not only that, it is a great help for speakers of any language to search complex patent literature. ”

Minesoft announces Non-Patent Literature Module for PatBase

 

Intellectual property information specialists Minesoft have released their new Non-Patent Literature search module making it easier and more efficient to uncover relevant prior art when applying for patent protection or fighting against patent infringement. Minesoft has added the new search capability to PatBase, giving users access to 12 major sources of non-patent and scientific literature including Science Direct, Scopus, PubMed and Google Scholar.

Using a basic keyword search or an advanced multiple field search, users can identify relevant literature from a variety of key innovation disciplines including medicine, agriculture, general science, computing & engineering. Covering clinical trials, conference publications, journal articles and thesis documents, the new module grants unparalleled access to scientific literature alongside the 100 million plus patent documents already within PatBase; thus enhancing the efficiency with which PatBase users can search and identify relevant literature and ensuring PatBase users always have emerging technology trends at their fingertips.

The module automatically de-duplicates non-patent literature identified across multiple sources and provides the ability to export data in Excel or RIS format. According to Global Innovation Senior Manager, Dr Robert Poolman “the addition of the nonpatent literature module to PatBase gives our users access to a wealth of knowledge from many different disciplines and which can be searched from the same PatBase platform, making it easier and more efficient for our users to uncover relevant prior art.” The NPL module is fully implemented within PatBase and PatBase Express and is available at no additional cost to all subscribers.
