Why Explore Patent Data?

Our noggle managed patent library inspires the exploration and enhanced understanding of intellectual property (IP). Together with their private noggle libraries, it allows to discover and visualize trends and patterns across the innovation landscape. As a result, we hope researchers and developers alike will explore and identify related knowledge.

What you will be doing with the patent search tool, at least in the first instance, is a keyword search. However, it is essential to try a variety of different keywords in your search. Once you stumble on the proper keyword combination the doorway starts to open to explore in combination with our cognitive clustering tool.

However, to do a competent patent search you must do more: For example, once you receive manageable results you need to read the patents and see which ones are relevant. So, always remember to try various search terms to make sure you are covering all possible descriptions of the invention. Along the way, as you read the patents and identify related ones, keep track of the numbers and identify the US classification that relates to the type of invention you are searching. Finally, upon identifying several US classifications that seem to relate to your invention, you can open the Advanced Search Page and do a classification search.

To search for keywords in patent library, just enter your keywords in the search box. So, a search with [cloud “information security”] would look for “cloud” and “information security” in the patent abstract.
