Heiko Wongel of Wongel IP gave the following presentation during the 2021 AI-SDV conference in October of 2021.
The rapidly growing amount of patent documentation will soon no longer be manageable with conventional search methods - possibly this is already the case today.
For a couple of years now, the application of machine learning (ML) methods are being discussed as a potential solution for reducing human effort in searching large amounts of patent data. While some promising projects and ideas in this direction have been presented by different sources, the real breakthrough for ML as a standard and widely accepted patent search method has not happened yet.
The presentation looks into the challenges that still exist in this area, especially as far as practical applicability and acceptance by users is concerned, using the Intergator Smart Search project as an example.
