Alpha/MVP of "Instant patent landscape" ready

JP Hwang @hindsights_io

Okay, so I'm really excited for this particular update. One of the challenges in reviewing patents / patent applications, in my view, has been understanding the context of the patent.

That is, answering questions like: what else is out there, who's working on similar problems, how new is this idea / concept, and is this trending up or down?

Well, I've got an initial version of what I'm calling the "Instant Patent Landscape" up & running, which goes some way towards answering these questions. These reports are generated by finding a set of similar patents to the initial document, and performing analysis on the result set.

Here are some examples - all of the analytics you'll see on each page is generated on demand.
