Cipher Certified

Build your own custom classifiers

What is Cipher Certified?

Being able to view the patent landscape through your own technology lens is essential to managing your patent portfolio.

At Cipher our unique Machine Learning algorithm allows you to do that through custom classifiers. We can build your technology lens, or you can do the building.​

​Cipher Certified enables you to build your own custom classifiers so you have control of the technology scopes and boundaries to build your view of the patent landscape. We provide training so you build the competency required to create your own custom classifiers.

Who would use Cipher Certified?

Typical users of Cipher Certified could include:

  • Patent teams who would prefer to have more control over the scope of any technology area and their results
  • If your organisation has an existing patent analytics team or a team that carry out patent intelligence through searching and landscaping
  • Organisations who need to regularly look at new technology areas or build new queries regularly to answer business questions quickly.
Cipher gave us the ability to understand the technology landscape and was an important foundation layer in creating a strategy for protecting our innovations whilst enabling us to understand how best to deal with others in potential conflict areas.
