Elute Intelligence Holdings ground breaking Patent Reader launched commercially

Elute Intelligence Holdings (“Elute” or the “Company”) is to make patent searching quicker and easier with the commercial launch of a Patent Reader based on its novel software tools, which mimics the way people read, to intelligently search and compare unstructured text-based information.

The move follows a successful pilot with a dedicated user group comprising patent rich multi-nationals, high-tech SMEs and professional IP service providers, such as lawyers, established to support the Patent Reader’s development.

The Patent Reader allows users to identify relevant patents and understand why they are relevant within minutes of starting a search. Initially, they will be able to search from more than 70 million patents in major jurisdictions, including the United States, China, the European Union and worldwide.

It is one of many potential applications for Elute’s technology. The Company’s software searches, compares and analyses documents to identify similarities between them by mimicking the way people read. Users are able to enter existing patents, draft applications, research papers on topics of interest and identify relevant patents. This means the approach is very different to conventional keyword or Boolean search technologies.   A patent application has been filed to protect developments of the technology.

Elute was incorporated last year from an existing UK business CFL Software Limited and included complementary intellectual property developed by Frontier IP. Existing customers include the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (“UCAS”) which is using a version of the software called Copycatch to detect plagiarism in students’ personal statements. Others include academic institutions, commercial researchers and lawyers.

Peter Fischer, Chief Executive Officer of Elute Intelligence, said: “We believe that Patent Reader has the ability to profoundly change the way patent search is carried out with huge benefits to our customers. I would like to thank the user group for its support and feedback, which has proved invaluable in allowing us to refine the product.”

 Matthew White, Chief Commercialisation Officer of Frontier IP Group, said: “We are delighted with the very rapid progress being made by Elute since we started working with them last year. The Company’s unique technology has a very broad range of applications. The Patent Reader is among the first products to take advantage of its immense potential.”

Elute Intelligence launches Patent Reader product to user group

Elute Intelligence Holdings (“Elute”) today announces it has opened up access on its Patent Reader platform to a group of experienced patent professionals helping them to effectively and efficiently find relevant patent information.

The group includes users from patent rich multi-nationals, high-tech SMEs and professional IP services providers. Elute’s novel advanced software tools enable the users to intelligently search patent information, identifying those documents of most relevance.

Elute’s artificial intelligence searches, compares and analyses documents to identify similarities between them by mimicking the way people read. The users are able to enter existing patents, draft applications, research papers on topics of interest and identify relevant patents. This means the approach is very different to conventional keyword or Boolean search technologies.   A patent application has been filed to protect developments of the technology.

Elute will use feedback from the user group to refine the Patent Reader functionality in advance of a formal product launch later in the year.

Elute was incorporated last year from an existing UK business CFL Software Limited and included complementary intellectual property developed by Frontier IP. Existing customers include the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (“UCAS”) which is using a version of the software called CopyCatch to detect plagiarism in students’ personal statements. Others include academic institutions, commercial researchers and lawyers.

Alex Tame, Head of Licensing and IP Management, Oxbotica, said “Using a whole document as a basis to search IP rather than the more traditional method of constructing complex search strings has totally transformed the way I extract valuable IP information to support the business.

“Elute’s technology has now reached a level of accuracy and simplicity that means complex search strategies and software are no longer required.  The automatic ranking of search results immediately directs me to the most relevant patents and I can instantly understand why they appear to be the most relevant.  The ability to review more ideas and inventions quickly and in depth while spending less time on the searching will no doubt help many people across the IP industry “

Peter Fischer, Chief Executive Officer of Elute Intelligence, said: “We are pleased to be opening up access to Patent Reader to an impressive group of experienced patent professionals and look forward to their feedback.  We believe that Patent Reader has the ability to profoundly change the way patent search is carried out with huge benefits to our customers.”

Matthew White, Chief Commercialisation Officer of Frontier IP Group, said: “Patent Reader is another demonstration of Elute’s ability to rapidly identify relevant information in large datasets. The underlying capability has enormous value in unstructured data search and comparison.”

Covid-19 Document Reader

Elute Intelligence launches dedicated COVID-19 Document Reader to help scientists find vital research more rapidly

Elute Intelligence Holdings (“Elute”) today announces it has launched a dedicated free-to-use online COVID-19 Document Reader to help scientists worldwide tackling the disease to find vital research more rapidly.

The COVID-19 Document Reader draws on Elute’s novel advanced software tools to intelligently search large and complex databases to identify relevant information swiftly and effectively. It is available at https://elute.info.

The databases being used include a subset of PubMed, an online resource of more than 30 million citations for papers drawn from Medline, life science journals, books and other sources. Researchers will be able to search this for articles mentioning terms related to the current COVID-19 outbreak, such as coronavirus, COVID, MERS, or SARS. Elute is proactively working with researchers to identify additional datasets.

Elute’s artificial intelligence searches, compares and analyses documents to identify similarities between them by mimicking the way people read. Researchers enter an entire paper already identified as of interest to find other relevant research. They can also create their own documents defining their own interests to enter into the Document Reader to refine searches still further.

This means the approach is very different to conventional keyword or Boolean search technologies. A patent application has been filed to protect developments of the technology.

Elute is already talking to a number of partners to support and publicise the COVID-19 Document Reader.

Peter Fischer, Chief Executive Officer of Elute Intelligence, said: “We are proud to be supporting the global fight against COVID-19 by exploiting our unique capability in document search to support scientists in their crucial research.”

Matthew White, Chief Commercialisation Officer of Frontier IP Group, said: “The COVID-19 Document Reader demonstrates just some of Elute’s ability to rapidly identify relevant information in unstructured datasets. It is great to see the team deploy this capability in such a short space of time.”
