Clarivate Analytics

 - Principal Software Engineer & Inventor Technology Clarivate Analytics
Larry Mulcahy - Solutions Consultant Clarivate Analytics
Bob Stembridge - Senior IP Analyst Clarivate Analytics

What is the webinar about?

These days with over 100 million patents, 70 million plus journal articles and an estimated total amount of 16.1 zetabytes of data as of 2016, we need all the help we can get in navigating to the correct information we need. AI and semantic search hold great promise in providing that help. Using machine learning against high quality training sets can provide very effective assistance in surfacing relevant results quickly.

This webinar will review how we at Clarivate Analytics are using AI to develop advanced search and analysis capability leveraging the power of the world’s gold standard patent database, Derwent World Patents Index, to complement the work of the professional searcher.

What topics will be discussed?

  • The patented process for automated searching of patents that takes in not just words, but also classifications, synonyms and other elements that provides the foundation for Smart Search
  • The intelligent creation of semantic search phrases from natural language input including foreign languages
  • How search results are brought together using highly focused and effective relevance ranking to bring the most important answers to the top of the list
  • How to take your research further, expanding the results with intuitive visualization and analytics tools
  • How building on DWPI content allows more tailored, complete and reliable search access to patents, enabling richer discovery of semantic relationships from the patents themselves, providing better retrieval and ranking of results
