Artificial Intelligence to Examinations Introduced

From February 15, 2021, the service has been started using artificial intelligence (AI) technology for trademark and design examination and trial purposes according to the Korea Intellectual Property Office (KIPO).

With the launch of the system, the existing method of searching thousands of images per examination with the ‘naked eye’ has been revolutionized for the trademark and design examiner, greatly reducing the time required for examination and improving examination accuracy.

The main function of the image search system is to compare an applied image with previously registered images and then show the results in order of similarity. It is noteworthy that it is possible to search by recognizing a partial image among images in which multiple parts are combined.
