The Setrue Semantic Patent Search Engine, created by Jacob Zoarets (founder and CTO of Transformer Software, Ltd in 2008) was a free web-based system which semantically searched USPTO and EPO patent documents, but the Setrue site no longer appears to be functional. A 2008 press release described the following capabilities of the search system:
- Semantic natural language query capabilities.
- Query auto-complete suggestions.
- Detailed USPTO class directory structure enabling a one click segmentation of search results to a specific uspto patent class.
- Clustering of search results by USPTO classes.
- Clustering of search results by years.
- Clustering of search results by assignees.
- Similar patents segmentation.
- Dynamic weighting of search terms.
- Highlighting of search terms in documents.
- Advanced search capabilities.
- Dynamic list of law firms and attorney sites specialized in the field of the user's query filtered by expertise and the user's geographic location proximity.
Besides the free semantic search system, the site also offered fee-based professional services, like expert consultation and expert search by patent attorneys.
