Query Generation for Patent Retrieval with Keyword Extraction based on Syntactic Features

18 Jun 2019  ·  Julien Rossi, Matthias Wirth, Evangelos Kanoulas ·

This paper describes a new method to extract relevant keywords from patent claims, as part of the task of retrieving other patents with similar claims (search for prior art). The method combines a qualitative analysis of the writing style of the claims with NLP methods to parse text, in order to represent a legal text as a specialization arborescence of terms. In this setting, the set of extracted keywords are yielding better search results than keywords extracted with traditional methods such as tf-idf. The performance is measured on the search results of a query consisting of the extracted keywords.
