Accurate Content You Can Rely On
Using proprietary and predictive metrics, such as the PatentAdvisor Smart Detection System™, you can escape hazy data and get information that is designed to be accurate and fair.
The metrics allow you to see the complete history of your examiner, predict behavior, and adjust and develop new strategies to maximize your outcomes. Our accuracy is reflected through:
  • Reliable, exclusive metrics beyond allowance rates
  • A proprietary approach to data harmonization that ensures the highest level of accuracy and fairness
  • The most complete process in normalization of examiner, law firm and corporation names that enable you the most comprehensive accurate patent analytics.

The PatentAdvisor Smart Detection System™ is a proprietary model that utilizes artificial intelligence to determine which law firm should be assigned to an application. It gathers data from multiple sources within the PAIR record including response documents. Using response documents allows PatentAdvisor to be significantly more accurate.
