Xyggy Patent is live

Xyggy patent search

News from Xyggy – their patent search service is now live. Forget keywords, this is about item searches.

Strikes me this would be of interest in the medical imaging world. So I tried ‘MRI’ as the item search. Then selected the top of the list return. Usefully the search engine then delivers a list of similar patents, as Xyggy’s Dinesh Vadhia explains:

Imagine you want to find similar patents for a given patent. Now you can with Xyggy Patent. What’s more, you can query with multiple patents (selected by patent number or title) and Xyggy will find all similar patents in ranked order. Go ahead and try it (and its free).

Received this intriguing note from Dinesh Vadhia recently on a new item-based search service, Xyggy:

Hi! A short note about our new startup, Xyggy. We are building-out an item-based search service and platform. What is an item-based search service? Go to the Xyggy site at www.xyggy.com and have a play with the five demos which have been made public. If you like what you see then feel free to tell others.
