  • Latent Semantic Analysis
    Ensure that the semantic search returns more relevant documents that are deemed on point based on concepts, not just key words.
  • Most Scalable Semantic Technology Available
    Access semantic intelligence that began learning with the USPTO patent index of over 7 million patent documents and over 2.5 million Elsevier journal articles and continues to learn as more patent documents are added.
  • Fully Federated
    The semantic search platform can federate semantic search to virtually any index, whether it resides internally or on the Web.
  • Semantic Search Options
    Choose from several solutions and sources when using the semantic search option: TotalPatent®, PatentOptimizer™, Elsevier and other STM journals, and select news and business sources.
  • Save time
    Enter what you know about the technology or topic you’re researching, and let the semantic technology uncover related concepts and terms.
  • Get greater recall
    Utilize the semantic search option to bring more results to you that are related to your search query, whether or not you used the specific terms in your initial search.
  • Improve precision
    Narrow your search with combined Boolean and semantic search technologies to get results that are highly relevant to the technology or topic you are researching—even when terms used in the patent or non-patent prior art are vague or obscure.
  • Benefit from full transparency
    Eliminate the guesswork about what’s being done away from your view and control. Review the terms and concepts suggested by the semantic technology before the actual search is run.
  • Take greater control
    Enjoy complete control of editing and prioritizing the terms and concepts you choose to include in your research.
