AMBERCITE - AI

Ambercite Ai uses unique algorithms to find the most similar patents to one or more starting patents. Results are ranked by similarity, and searches are very quick and easy thanks to a simple and intuitive interface.

How similar? We (and our clients) have benchmarked our algorithms against the best conventional and semantic search engines we could find - and strongly believe that we have the best similarity engine out there. Our ranking is assisted by our unique family to family analysis - and is not weakened by the limitations of inconsistent language and terminology inherent in other approaches. 

What does this mean to our users? Fast, cost-effective and intuitive searches that will instantly find you similar patents missed by others. Check out the demonstration video below.

APPLICATiONS FOR Ambercite ai

Because Ambercite Ai is so simple and easy to use, and can produce such unique results, our users increasingly agree: 'No search is complete without it'. 

Prior Art Searching

Start with a patent number or a list of known prior art patents. Get a ranked list of highly similar patents - including similar patents missed by others. Check out a video of an invalidity search below. 

Licensing

Find very similar patents and their owners, for a patent or group of patents you wish to commercialise. Use our"Licensing Potential" metric to prioritize opportunities and patent owners. Check out a demonstration video of a licensing search a bit further below.

Instant patent landscaping

Start with even a small list of the known patents in the area, and quickly build a landscape from there

Portfolio Benchmarking

Separate the gems from the junk. Rank and understand a portfolio of patents.

AMBERSCOPE

AmberScope combines 150+ million patent citations to show you the most similar and most important patents connected to your starting patent. A variety of features can help make the results shown to you in a fully interactive webpage, as shown in the video below: 

 

You can also watch videos explaining a search for prior art, ,

Want to know how to interpret the bubble chart? Only 5 things you need to know. Read more below:

  • The most similar patents can easily be recognised as those with thicker lines connecting them to the focus patent (starting patent).
  • Important patents in the same area can easily be recognised as those with the largest bubble sizes.
  • Simple filters let you focus on patents that are:
  1. within a target date range
  2. the most similar to the focus patent
  3. the most important patents connected to the focus patent
  4. or a combination of the above
  • Potential infringements can easily be recognised with arrows showing the ‘flow of ideas’ through the patent network.
  • "Ghost patents" shown opaque, are indirectly linked patents, that our algorithms think are relevant to your search, but were missed by the examiner or applicant. 

WHY CHOOSE AMBERCITE?

Take a quick look at this presentation we did recently - First Steps

There are a number of products and firms out there that also offer patent searching and analytics.

So why should you choose Ambercite products or services?

WE DON'T TREAT ALL PATENTS AND PATENT LINKS AS THE SAME, SAVING YOU TIME AND MONEY

We identify what are likely to be the most similar and most important patents close to the patents that you are interested in, using advanced methods based on our unique algorithms. This saves you time and money otherwise lost on reading low value patent documents.  With rankings and visual clues we suggest which patents deserve the most attention. This reduces the risk of missing key patents.

INTUITIVE AND INTERACTIVE GRAPHICS

We provide intuitive and, in the case of AmberScope, interactive graphics. This helps make patent searching more interesting! Visuals, rather than log lists of data, are more intuitive to many people and can improve your patent searching productivity. It is thought that our brains can process visuals 60,000 times faster than text.

OBJECTIVE AND STATISTICALLY ROBUST

All our products rely on objective and automated algorithms analyzing what can be hundreds of thousands of data points for one similarity assessment. Even better, our algorithms rely on millions of independent examiner or applicant decisions, removing the need for classification systems or subject matter text analysis. Better and more comprehensive data means better outcomes.

GROUP PATENTS INTO CLUSTERS BASED ON INVENTIVE CONCEPTS

Our patent landscaping service Network Patent Analysis™ (NPA™) self organises patents into clusters based on inventive concepts. It draws upon the collective wisdom of all applicants and examiners in the area rather than what can be outdated patent classification systems.

Unlike patent classification codes, NPA™ clusters keep up with advances in technology. NPA™ clusters are also much more precise, yet more inclusive than other forms of clustering patents, such as keyword clustering. This ensures that your patent mapping results reflect current technology trends, not a technology landscape that existed twenty years ago. It also picks up important technological nuances.

A SYSTEMATIC MEANS OF IDENTIFYING WHITE SPACES

NPA™ provides a systematic means of identifying white spaces — and even the patents in them. Rather than guessing, NPA tells you.

OUR PRODUCTS ARE COMPLEMENTARY TO YOUR OTHER PATENT SEARCH OR ANALYSIS TOOLS

By focusing on being the best citation based patent insight provider, our products are designed to complement your existing search processes, and so provide a second and what may be unique opinion.
