Case Studies
Client A multi-national consumer goods company
Problem & Context The client was interested to learn about materials that are used in valves , especially aerosol valves, that are made of plastics. The client wanted SPA to explore and prepare a report on type of valve materials that were being studied globally.
SPA Approach & Deliverables
  • The SPA team conducted a patent search and identified more than 5000 relevant records.
  • Analysis of 5000 records would have been a very time intensive task.
  • In order to save time and effort, SPA developed a ML/AI tool.
  • A 3-member SPA team trained the AI/ML tool.
  • Subsequently, SPA team used this trained model to categorize a sample patent data-set. This data-set formed the core for further training of the AI/ML tool.
  • The above Step was iterated several times to improve the accuracy of the output.
  • The AI/ML model was thus made ready following which the entire 5000 patent data-set was uploaded on the tool and was used for categorizing the records based on type of valve, material of construction etc.
  • The technology assessment was thus made based on a huge patent data-set using an in-house developed AI/ML tool.
  • The model achieved more than 70% accuracy.
  • The AI/ML tool was integrated into a globally accessible portal which enabled quick visualization of the patent data-set using graphical representation.
Turnaround time 4 to 5 Weeks for training of AI/ML tool and 1 week for every query
Cost $20,000 - $25,000
