”There is no way anyone can ever call this a black box” – showing the power of IPRally to the world

November 17, 2021

After having been caught in the virtual world for almost two years, IPRally is enjoying the opportunity to meet with the IP community again.

As the world is getting back to normal, IPRally is enjoying the opportunity to meet with the IP community again. We are sponsoring and attending several key industry events between now and the end of 2021, and are looking forward to showing everyone how IPRally is changing the way patent information is accessed.

I am writing this from a hotel room in Seattle, waiting for the first official day of the IPBC Global conference to kick off. After having been caught in the virtual world for almost two years it seems like things are finally starting to ”get back to normal” and it’s great to be here. We have all learned to interact virtually by now, but there is no substitute for in person interactions!

That things are getting back to normal is – if nothing else – clear when looking at our events calendar. IPRally will be exhibiting and speaking at a long list of events, both virtual and in person, between now and the end of the year.

The event season has already kicked off, and we have already sponsored and attended an in person event. In the third week of October we sponsored London IP week, live in London, where we had the chance to have some great conversations about the future of patent searching and processing with both old and new acquaintances.

Then, the last week of October, we had the great opportunity to present at the ML4Patents webinar, hosted by Tony Trippe. The concept of this series of webinars is to focus on how machine learning and artificial intelligence can assist in pushing the envelope for patent search. If you missed it, our session can be watched here.

The session focused on the unique methodology and technology behind IPRally and Graph Neural Networks, the actual search process and a test of accuracy by classifying documents in a pre-defined data set (which is the same for everyone that is taking part in this series). It was clear that our approach is indeed unique, and that it produces very impressive results. Some of the unique benefits of IPRally were highlighted – namely transparency, explainability and control – and concisely summarized by Tony when he stated that “there is no way anyone can call this a black box” and ”This is fascinating (…) you can’t ask for anything more explicit, in the ability to pretty quickly judge and adjust the sensitivity... so this is very impressive”. We, and our customers, knew this already, but it was great to get the opportunity to display this to a wider audience of experts, as the lack of control and explainability has been one of the key obstacles for many in their journey towards trusting and adopting AI. Up until now, that is.

And, now we’re here, at a hotel in Seattle, ready to show the world what transparent and explainable AI can do to improve patent processes, big and small.

After IPBC, we are looking forward to meeting many of you in the next couple of weeks as we will attend, sponsor and speak at these events:

14-16 November | IPBC Global
Live and in person in Seattle, US
We are sponsoring this event and have a booth where you are welcome to visit us.

16-17 November | AIPLA Corporate Practice Institute
Virtual, for AIPLA members and non members
We are sponsoring this event and will present as part of the agenda.

18 November | CIPSC
Live and in person in Santa Clara, US
We are sponsoring this event, but don’t have a booth.

22-23 November | IP Service World
Live and in person in Munich, Germany
We are sponsoring this event, and we are speaking as well as hosting workshops.

9-11 December | CIP Forum
Live and in person in Gothenburg, Sweden
We are sponsoring this event, will have a booth and will be part of a panel discussion.

Let us know if you are planning to attend any of these events, and what you are looking to get out of them!
