Abstract

In recent years, there has been an explosive growth in scientific and regulatory documents related to the patent system. Relevant information is siloed into many heterogeneous information domains making it very challenging to retrieve information across multiple domains. In this paper, we develop an ontology for the patent system to integrate information from the patent and court case domains. Through a use case erythropoietin, we demonstrate how this ontology can be used to enhance information retrieval across multiple domains.
