This feature analyzes the title, abstract, claims, and CAS indexing for your patent and uses four different algorithm streams including machine learning and natural language processing to find similar relevant patents and non-patent literature. These documents will all have priority dates before that of your target patent, representing the state of the art before your patent established its priority. The results set will consist of Accession Numbers for up to 100 patent and 100 non-patent literature documents saved as one L-number.
