TurboPatent launches automated patent prosecution tool

TurboPatent has released a new tool aimed at automating and streamlining patent prosecution using artificial intelligence (AI).

The new software, RoboReview, uses AI and predictive analysis to automatically analyse draft patent applications, reducing the time it takes for lawyers to review a patent application.

TurboPatent says the software will eliminate human error as well as cut the typical patent review time from days to just seconds, with staff time and billable hours saved.

In a statement, Charles Mirho, founder and chief legal counsel of TurboPatent said: “RoboReview uses natural language processing and advanced algorithms specifically tuned for patent practice to quickly reveal and comment on very complex issues in patent claims.”

“It’s far superior to other software tools for this purpose, on par with the analysis an experienced patent attorney could provide in far shorter time and much lower cost.”

TurboPatent CEO, James Billmaier, said: “Like any procedure that involves people, the review process is subject to human error.”

“TurboPatent automates the most tedious and time-consuming parts of the process, which drastically cuts down on the likelihood of potential issues going unnoticed. That leaves humans to decide whether or not to submit a patent and if so, what alterations need to be made.”
