    - Find potential collaborators with complementary activities.
    - Make ML-based searches, ranked according to the machine learning model of interest.
  • A generic example of machine ranked search results can be found here.
  • Comment: "Usually, I do not check patents, but based on your reports, I realised several companies in my vicinity work on Li-sulfur batteries, which is very useful to find potential collaborators. You also provide meaningful information on industry research trends."

  • Use Case #3 - New Business Development Manager at an Industrial Materials Conglomerate

  • A New Business Development Manager ordered a tailored study to evaluate a potential strategic investment into an energy storage materials startup company.
  • Our study combined insights from an ML-based IP analysis with a broader identification of trends that could limit the long term competitive differentiation potential of the technology even if it is successfully commercialized.
  • References to public information sources (press releases, financial & trade journal articles) provided additional insight and verification of the IP-based findings.
  • Comment: "We have been very satisfied with your work."

  • Use Case #4 - Patent Lawyer at a Law Firm

  • A Patent Lawyer has placed orders for tailored machine learning models with which more than 100,000 patents were screened.
  • With this approach, it was possible to identify the 50-100 patents that were of most direct interest for a patent filing.
  • A traditional patent search with an established company had failed because it was not possible to accurately reflect the search request into a keyword-based query.
  • Comment: "We were very happy with your work. Here is another request."
