Patent Retrieval: A Literature Review [article]

Walid Shalaby, Wlodek Zadrozny
2017 arXiv   pre-print
With the ever increasing number of filed patent applications every year, the need for effective and efficient systems for managing such tremendous amounts of data becomes inevitably important.  ...  PR is a subfield of Information Retrieval (IR) which is concerned with developing techniques and methods that effectively and efficiently retrieve relevant patent documents in response to a given search  ...  Moreover, IPC filtering wouldn't be possible when only partial patent application is available for prior art search.

Formulating Simple Structured Queries Using Temporal and Distributional Cues in Patents

Le Zhao, James P. Callan
2009 Text Retrieval Conference  
It raises the concern that just the citations included in query patents can be a biased and incomplete set of relevance judgements for the prior art task.  ...  can be very different from the prior art task (finding patents that invalidates the query patent).  ...  In the real world, the prior art search scenario starts with a query patent, usually a full patent with priority dates, claims, full content of the patent and citations.  ...

Preliminary study into query translation for patent retrieval

Charles Jochim, Christina Lioma, Hinrich Schütze, Steffen Koch, Thomas Ertl
2010 Proceedings of the 3rd international workshop on Patent information retrieval - PaIR '10  
We expand monolingual patent queries with their translations, using both a domain-specific patent dictionary that we extract from the patent collection, and a general domain-free dictionary.  ...  This multilinguality of patent collections offers opportunities for improving patent retrieval. In this work we exploit these opportunities by applying query translation to patent retrieval.  ...  We would also like to thank Fabienne Braune and Alexander Fraser for their contribution to the paper.  ...
