With the ever-increasing volume of data to be searched, the techniques of semantic search will be key to successful prior art searching. These techniques consist of methods for understanding the searcher`s intent, disambiguating the contextual meaning of (search) terms and ultimately improving search accuracy by generating more relevant results. This
presentation explores how far the EPO has come in enabling some of those key elements through projects such as Annotated Patent Literature and Enhanced Ranking. It also introduces even more sophisticated models based on machined-learned algorithms that might help to shape the future of search at the EPO.
