The problem

Is this the way to search for patents?

With worldwide patent counts increasing exponentially, existing search
 methods no longer provide accurate results.

Old way
Boolean & Unsupervised
ML searches
  •   You never find every relevant patent
  •   There is always noise in your results
  •   Unsupervised ML is a black box

Without Focus you get noisy results,
or will miss relevant patents

Our way
Focus AI
  • Don't miss relevant patents
  • Find more patents in less time
  • Always up to date and on your own terms
  • Facilitates storytelling to your stakeholders

With Focus you will find every relevant
patent in record time

The solution

Turning patent data into strategic
intelligence starts with focus

Focus AI helps you find all relevant patent documents, while keeping you in the driver's seat.

Step 1: Training your AI classifier

Teach Focus what you want to search for

With AI classifiers, Focus lets you take control over the AI. This approach combines the best of human intelligence with the power of machine learning. You are in control, while Focus does the hard work.

Is it difficult to train classifiers?

Anybody with a basic understanding of the target technology can do it, but we can also do it for you!

Step 2: Letting your classifier loose

Search through global patent data & review results

Focus will scan through millions of patent documents and will only retrieve those patents it has been taught to look for.

How relevant are the results?

Focus tends to finds 2-5 times more relevant patents than Boolean search.

Step 3: Analyzing your results

Create custom reports with an interactive dashboard

Track competitor activity, benchmark your portfolio, or stay on top of technological trends. Set your specifications and create your custom report.

Can I also export data?

All search results are exportable, simply select which fields you want to
export and download an Excel file or CSV.


AI Classifiers

Automatically classify patents with AI classifiers. Never manually tag patents again.

Supervised ML

Not a black box! Get the best of both worlds with Focus. You are in full control of the AI while it does the hard work. 


Bulk import lists of patent publication numbers to quickly rack up training examples for your classifiers.

Label suggestions

Are you stuck with finding training examples for your classifier? Suggestions helps you find more.

CPC suggestions

Not sure which CPC codes to search through to get the best search results? Focus suggests them to you automatically.

Global patent data

Focus AI has global coverage with >146 million inventions from all over the world. New inventions are automatically added.

English translations

High quality translations allow you to track important developments globally. Never miss anything important.

Customizable dashboards

Create custom dashboards for any technology. You can customize by region, time,  organizations, and more.

Dynamic patent landscapes

Get an always up to date overview of what every competitor, university, startup, and scale-up is doing in any technology space.

Periodic updates

Set custom update frequencies and only receive notifications about developments  when you want them.

Export charts & data

Export raw data from Focus without limitations. Charts can also be exported as images, pdf, or by raw data.

Custom taxonomies
