What is classification profiling?

Class profiling is a technology build into AcclaimIP that finds similar patents to any target patent using a profiling matrix based on the original and cross reference classifications of the target patent.  It is unique to AcclaimIP since it is the only software package on the market that is aware of the class hierarchy and the parent child relationship of each class for US, CPC and IPC classifications systems.  Users find that class profiling works at least as well as semantically identifying similar patents, but has the unique advantage of being completely independent of the patent author’s vocabulary, word choice and lexicon.
