Automate workflows with programmatic access to patent data

Automation is critical for corporations, government agencies and investment managers, who are engaging with data scientists to integrate, manipulate and analyze patent data. While other patent databases tend to be built around traditional, manual workflows, Derwent™ APIs use machine learning and automation to improve efficiency. Our Smart Search server-based service improves accuracy, letting you find the patents most relevant to your search or analysis.
