Building on Minesoft’s expertise gained through data mining projects, the Quantity Search capability is a unique AI-enabled search feature on PatDocs that facilitates searching by specified unit quantities within patent texts! The artificial intelligent technique used, identifies quantities within the natural language in patent free text. This allows users to search by any variation of quantity syntax, for example, whether searching the full unit name or abbreviation (kilometres or km), or a value range using the word “to” or a hyphen “-“ between quantities. PatDocs has spelling correction capabilities, so if a misspelt quantity is input, PatDocs can suggest the corrected spelling.

Many unique industry-specific quantities are supported. For example, a search in pascals (pressure) may find results given in N/m2, mmHg, millibar etc. The context for some quantity types is captured e.g. “Fe: 1-20 wt%” allows searching for iron-containing alloys, while other scenarios can be handled by user-provided proximity queries e.g. “10-14 volts” within n words of “battery”. PatDocs unique AI interpretation to detect and understand quantities e.g. length, mass, temperature. All quantities with compatible units are automatically searched. This makes searching for quantities frictionless, no matter value system input.

Search results can be further refined by patent criteria such as priority country, classification codes, publication year and more. Also, analyse the full result set with just one click to see the top assignees, inventors etc. in aesthetic and exportable charts.
