Abstract

Patent Retrieval is a branch of Information Retrieval (IR) aiming to support people in retrieving patents that satisfy their information needs. Patent Retrieval is a challenging task: usual queries involve a huge number of words - often entire patent claims; moreover the style of writing a patent is often obscure causing a severe amount of vocabulary mismatch between queries and patents. For this reason, despite of the numerous patent search applications already available, we propose in this paper PatentLight[1] a search tool that offers novel and flexible functionalities based on both fuzzy logic and IR to help users looking for relevant patents here represented as XML documents.
