Abstract

The past few years have seen an explosive growth in scientific and regulatory documents related to the patent system. Relevant information is siloed into many heterogeneous and distributed information sources making it very challenging to retrieve information across multiple domains. In this demonstration, we present a tool that enables users to simultaneously search multiple information domains in the patent system. The presented tool is built upon the Patent System Ontology, which provides both a standardized representation of the patent system domain and required semantics to integrate the various information domains [1], [2]. The tool provides features such as integration with a biomedical knowledge base and recommendations for related articles. Future additions to the tool will provide features to analyze the data both statistically and visually to aid in research. We demonstrate how this tool can be helpful in expediting search and information retrieval in an intelligent and convenient way through a use case in the bio domain - erythropoietin.
