  1. Define the technology of interest in graph format. You can start with any of the three search options, the most typical being free text and graph builder options.

  2. Run an initial search

  3. In the filters,

    1. Select/De-Select the geographies of interest in PUBLICATION COUNTRY,

    2. Select AI SEARCH CLAIMS ONLY and

    3. Set Legal status to ACTIVE and UNKNOWN

Then just press “Search patents” again.

Voilá, the AI compares the technology of interest to the claims of active (or potentially active) patents and patent applications in the selected geographies and you get a list of patent families whose scope is worth checking more closely!

In addition, under "View options" you can choose to see the First claim in the expanded result list instead of the abstract. This will help you scan the results quicker.
