Alexandria, Virginia, May 8, 2019.
More than 300 Patent Examiners attended the training session on “How to Expedite the Patent Examination Process” organized under the Patent Examiner Technical Training Program (PETTP) in the USPTO Tech Fair.
The training session was focused on sharing knowledge on cutting-edge advances in IP Research by introducing them to the newer, intelligently-automated ways to expedite the patent examination process. This will enable them to find relevant references and prior art more efficiently, earlier in the prosecution process.
The speakers at the training event were Mr. Jitin Talwar (Founder of Intellectual Property firm – TT Consultants), Mr. Sandeep Singh Kohli (Co-Founder, XLPAT ), Mr. Chetan Sharma (R&D Head), Dr. Stephen Gucker (Former USPTO Patent Examiner) and Dr. Nirmal Basi (Former USPTO Examiner & CEO, XLPAT), who are aficionados with a rich experience in the IPR field and leaders of XLPAT Labs, a company that builds AI-based IP solutions.
The training session introduced the patent examiners to AI assisted augmented examination, that can automatically classify, allot, screen, search prior art and generate a comprehensive patentability report within minutes. This completely revolutionizes the conventional ways of patent examination and assists in providing a reliable and quick patent examination process.
