& AI Enhanced IP Software
ipCG offers our clients high quality prior art, patentability, Evidence of Use (EOU), and Freedom to Operate (FTO) searches. When seeking out assistance with search services it is important to note that some of our competitors use subcontractors with limited search transparency. They lack a high quality easily interpreted deliverable. Others are regarded as very expensive and lack experienced leadership. Single proprietors lack the resources of larger firms with dedicated searchers. These competitors all lack the strategic capabilities of ipCapital Group.

AI Enhanced Searching
- AI supplants bias and is agnostic to technology, looking for trends and correlations that even the experts may not see, allowing for more relevant results, faster.
- This broader, yet more focused approach using by AI also enhances the likelihood that Prior Art will be discovered in parallel or tangential technology
- The ability of AI to see past convoluted language and obfuscation is critical to discovering relevant but possibly non-obvious Prior Art in other domains.
- The use of AI in combination with human searchers allows for a more expansive yet higher quality discussion of prior art exposure. This improves the confidence in risk mitigation relative to FTO Prior Art Searches and strengthens determinations of Novelty.
