Our mission is simple

Creating Innovative Solutions to Maximize Patent Value

Our raison d'être is to provide easy-to-use products to improve the analysis of patents. We are emulating for patents what Electronic Design Automation (EDA) did for the semiconductor industry – providing automation to help patent professionals to assess patent value. With small portfolios the analysis is relatively easy, however with larger sized portfolios the task becomes challenging. Typically the approach has been to rely on subject matter experts (SMEs) to analyze each patent in the portfolio – problematic since the assessments are subjective and error prone. Furthermore the use of SMEs becomes cost prohibitive with large sized portfolios.

Hence we changed how portfolio analysis is done by developing an AI platform optimized for the task. Rather than depending on individual SMEs our AI system leverages the collective knowledge of thousands of legal, technical and business experts combined with millions of records and real-time data. We have replaced a subjective assessment with a systematic approach to efficiently analyze a portfolio of any size, producing results that are data driven and accurate.

Finding A Better Way

Finding valuable patents is really hard to do. Current methods are generally costly and difficult to use; they demand considerable effort and require individuals with specialized skill sets.

"When I started my career as a hardware engineer, we handcrafted logic design manually. Fast forward to IBM Microelectronics where we designed and produced the world’s most complex multi-million gate systems on a chip; impossible without the use of automation. When I entered the world of IP, it was like stepping back in time, the work was done manually, time consuming and error prone - surprisingly, it's still done this way!  I was determined to find a better way."
