Patents 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).
