How to upload relevant patents
Give Neural mode a boost by uploading relevant patents
You can add one or more patents to your project and mark them all as relevant. This helps you keep all of your results organized in one place and can be used to quickly train Neural mode.
To upload patents as relevant first open the Upload tool from the header
You can upload a list of patents as a file or choose to copy and paste plain text
In this example, we'll only upload two patents so copy and pasting is easier. Click on the red text to do that.
Type or copy and paste the desired patent numbers separated by commas and click on Relevant
You can also use this feature to upload patents as Flagged, Hidden, or Unreviewed. Once you've entered the numbers and selected Relevant click on Continue.
Confirm matches and review any problems
You don't need to specify kind codes but doing so will make the process smoother. Here are some examples of how different number inputs are handled:
|OK||US8348342B2||Returns exact match with no validation needed|
|OK||US8348342||May require validation if multiple kind codes exist|
|OK||US834834||Returns multiple results and asks for validation|
|×||US834||Too many possible matches|
Patent number formats can vary across systems. We'll try to match based on the number you provide and if we're not sure which patent is correct, ask you to verify like in the example below:
We're working on automatically supporting more number variations but in some cases you may need to adjust the format yourself. If you need help with number formatting, please feel free to get in touch using the in-app chat.
The uploaded relevant results will be visible in your Uploaded and Reviewed list
Now you can switch to Neural mode and click on Update results to learn from the uploaded relevant patents and re-sort results.
