The present invention provides a computer implemented method for maintaining a knowledge base. The method taking as input, text examples that are tagged with a structural markup language; and maps knowledge nodes in the knowledge base with the tagged examples to determine: (1) the knowledge nodes that best match the tagged examples, and (2) the knowledge nodes that are best connected to the tagged examples. The results are displayed to the user, who verifies that the tagged examples match the selected knowledge nodes. Based on the user response, indices of the knowledge nodes are updated. The method may further include determining discrepancies between the existing knowledge base and the tagged examples, and further displaying the discrepancies to the user. The user can update the missing information in the knowledge base to remove the discrepancies in the existing knowledge base.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
