When dealing with patent databases, as a rule, it’s extremely difficult to find patent documents on the same topic. Key-word–based solutions are not effective in such cases, because different authors use different means of expression. Moreover, the required documents might belong to various fields of scientific knowledge, which makes the search even more complicated.
Document Comparator presents an effective solution for such problems, because it analyzes and compares the meaning of the textual information.
Upon the basis of Intellexer SDK, we have developed a unique semantic solution which provides for the precise and effective comparison of patents.
The developed solution ensures:
- Convenient navigation through the patent base, which makes it possible to view the full content of the documents.
- The opportunity to select any patent and to find other patents in a database that are particularly close in meaning to the source document.
- A precise Proximity Value for the located document in relation to the source document.
- The capability of previewing collocations - relevant sentences from the source and the located documents - which eliminates the need to look through the text of both documents by immediately highlighting the portions of the text that are identical in their meaning.
