AI Samurai evaluates patentability
by conducting patent searches driven by AI

Advantages of AI Samurai

The burden on users (labor, time, cost, etc.) for patent search is significantly reduced and thus patent research costs can be reduced by up to 40 % while the quality of search results is improved. (*Our survey)

1

Imput “invention content” such as Summary of Invention or draft claim through text

2

Perform analysis for all patent documents in database

Output analysis/search results

  • Prior Art Search
  • / Clearance Search
  • / Invalidity Search

Prior Art Search

Similar document evaluation using AI is performed when “invention content” is input. International patent classification (IPC) is certified at a high speed from the “invention content,” the five most similar documents are extracted, and the degree of similarity with “invention content” is evaluated in 4 levels from A to D. Claim chart with five similar documents is automatically generated.

  • A )Similarity with search document is extremely low
  • B )Similarity with search document is low
  • C )Similarity with search document is high
  • D )Similarity with search document is extremely high
Learning Search
In Prior Art Search and Invalidity Search, a function of applying a user’s evaluation is added in a claim chart which is output by AI. By performing user evaluation, since the evaluation is reflected at the time of re-searching, the accuracy is improved as more searches are performed. Since contents of evaluation are periodically aggregated to update the algorithm, high-precision text search that conventional search systems do not have is realized. In addition, refinement of IPC categories and weighting search of important words can also be used together.

Clearance Search

When invention content is entered, a list of 500 patent documents extracted in descending order of similarity by search by AI can be generated in about one minute and CSV data can be downloaded. List items include similarity of searched “invention content” in addition to bibliographic information, summary of invention, and claims.
Same intuitive text entry form as prior art search

Invalidity Search

When a registration number of a patent publication or “invention content” to be invalidated and a reference date for investigation are entered and searched for, similar patents are automatically extracted, the possibility of invalidation is evaluated by AI, and a claim chart with five similar documents is generated.

Research on registration number of patent publication to be invalidated and reference date

2

Research on “invention content” to be invalidated and reference date Generation of claim chart

IP Strategy Map

Search results of a Prior Art Search function are divided by technology area and evaluation results of similar documents and scope of exercise of rights are plotted. Characters are mapped to the field, a company’s intellectual property situation is visualized in detail in a game-like form, and it is possible to see application status and invention creation status from a bird’s eye view. Accordingly, it is possible to make an intelligent strategic plan more intuitive and faster than before.

When hovering over a character, a summary of searched text is shown.

2

By clicking a character, details of searched text are shown.

Castles are arranged by IPC category

Search History List

Input contents and AI judgment results are listed by date. Since a user’s notes can be saved together, histories of current search status and ranking of past search contents can be easily checked.

    Display of status such as waiting, canceling, and searching in addition to search results are possible

  • 3

    Search results and details can be checked along with notes

  • 4

    Display of database of patent document and update information of algorithm
