PIUG Patent Searching - Beyond the Basics (Registration)Instructor: Dominic DeMarco (Demarco IP)
Whether it is Week 10, Month 10, or Year 10 of searching patents, there will always be a new tip or trick that can make you better. In this fast paced and interactive class, we will help you think creatively to develop adaptive search queries and multi-pronged strategies that will hopefully keep you from being replaced by a machine learning algorithm…for a few years, at least.
Students need to have completed the preceding search courses through PIUG or have at least one year of patent searching experience. All should come to class with an open mind and willingness to do things differently. Every patent searcher has routines they follow, but our goal in this class is to help you shake things up and avoid falling into a rut. This will help you approach every search fresh, increase your efficiency, and hopefully, make your job less boring.
