② Give the project a name
The project name will be immediately viewable after naming.
(A function to edit the project name will be added in the future.)
③ Select the Input Method for the Project
Input by Patent Number
|This allows for the input of a patent number (useful in validity searching or if you have a known prior patent and want to find very similar prior art)
Input by Natural Text
|This allows for the input of free, natural text (useful in pre-filing patentability and new invention searching, freedom-to-operate searching, and for searching about technology related to the input.)|
① Select the country and enter the patent number.
A confirmation message will show up indicating the corresponding patent to your input. Please confirm and hit Next.
●When selecting a country:
US ➡︎ The family including the US patent will be the target of the search.
JP ➡︎ The family including the JP patent will be the target of the search.
② Next, please confirm the displayed Abstract summary of the patent is correct and click Create.
If it is not the patent you intended, select Back and enter the number again.
① Select the Country to be searched (this means each family must have at least one member from that country).
② Give a title that appropriately represents the idea of the text to be input. This can be like a patent title.
③ Please enter one or more sentences describing the invention or text to be searched, including the problem to be solved and technical features.
❌ Please do not simply enter keywords as you would with a traditional, complicated boolean search. Full sentences work best.
④The last input is optional and is equivalent to paragraph form detailed description of the invention. Generally the more input, the better.
① List of Feedback Results
② Filtering by Priority Date
③ Phrase Boost

⑤ Similarity Score and Patent Information
⑥ Progress to AI Learning Bar
If you provide feedback until the progress bar fills, the AI will learn and then optimize new results based on your choices.
⑦ Patent Abstract
⑧ Patent Information
If there are drawings, they will appear here and can be navigated (left/right)
Phrase boosting allows for you to select a phrase of text and immediately weight that concept higher in the optimization of returned results.
For example, "temperature during passivation of a semiconductor substrate", "height of a casing", "threshold value of frequency of use by a user", etc.
These may be critical features that you are looking for that correspond to defining features of the invention you are trying to find similar prior art for.
Amplified AI proposes better results based on the user feedback you provide for each result. By clicking the "Relevant", "Required Review" "No Relevance" "Noise" buttons in each of the displayed results and returning that feedback, AI understands the user's needs more deeply and re-optimizes the presentation of new results (after each set of 10).
|Relevant||These results have the technical features you are looking for clearly present.|
|Needs Review||It seems that the technical features that you are looking for may be present, but more analysis of the details is needed to confirm.|
|Not Relevant||It's in the same technology field, but does not have the same features.|
|Noise||Clearly not relevant to even the same field (e.g., you are investigating automotive and get a chemical structure, food, pharma, etc.)|
You can check each result for which feedback was already chosen in the list display.
You also have the option to change the choice.
