We are a group of patent professionals who have previously worked as engineers, scientists, and software developers. Our scientific and engineering background is key to understanding cutting edge technologies and creates distinctive benefits not found with a traditional law firm. From the beginning, our goal was to improve efficiency of the day-to-day operations of the firm by separating the creative process from the mundane. This efficiency enables lower overhead costs and greater value to our clients. Our highly customizable docketing system streamlines patent drafting and prosecution by automating routine docketing and reporting processes. This allows a smaller team of professionals to develop and manage large patent portfolios while maintaining low overhead. In fact, when some of the companies we have worked with have been acquired by big tech companies such as Google and Snap, they asked us to stay on and keep developing the patent portfolios they acquired.
Aura devices is a healthcare-oriented innovation company, delivering smart wearables with bioimpedance technology. Aura’s team of inventors develops mobile devices based on science to monitor health, wellness, and activities. The smart wearable devices made by Aura makes use of the bioimpedance technology. These devices help users to achieve their goals and change health perception.
The technology includes next-generation wearables that can monitor body composition, fat and muscle density, and hydration level as well as heart…
Dialogflow (Acquired by Google in 2016, now part of Google Assistant)
Google acquisition of Dialogflow and its team provided tools to help developers build conversational bots. The tools allowed teaching robots to generate contextual clues to resolve ambiguities in speech. The tools handled things like speech recognition, intent recognition, and context management, and allowed developers to provide domain-specific knowledge that would be unique to bot’s needs. The patent portfolio developed by IP Jurists PC included 46 US and international applications and provided protection for many…
Looksery (Acquired by Snap in 2015, now Snapchat Lenses)
The acquired technology became one of Snapchat most successful developments — “Lenses.” The technology let users video chat through a special facial filter that could make you look like a panda, grumpy cat, or monster, or alternatively manicure your own face to remove blemishes, smooth your skin tone, look thinner, or change the color of your eyes.
The patent portfolio developed by IP Jurists PC covered the facial feature detection and manipulation. The products covered…
AI Factory (Acquired by Snap in 2019, now Snap Cameos)
AI Factory was a computer vision startup that created Snapchat’s Cameos animated selfie-based video feature. Cameos let users take a selfie, which were then automatically “animated” and inserted into a short video. The selection of videos was created with the whole concept not unlike the one underpinning “deepfakes” — AI-based videos that look “real” but were actually things that never really happened.
While deepfakes have strong dystopian undertones, Cameos tapped into the technology in a…
Mipsology develops state-of-the-art FPGA-based accelerators for Deep Learning Inference. Software developed by Mipsology ensures high performance and flexibility while saving users time that’s often lost when deploying neural networks after each training. The software runs on main frameworks: PyTorch, TensorFlow and ONNX and is easily deployed using best in class FPGA technology. Accelerators developed by Mipsology can replace CPUs/GPUs by providing very fast speed of execution, ease of deployment, and accommodations for a range…
Instreamatic develops interactive voice advertising technology. Using this technology, interactive voice ads can be inserted into an audio stream.
Instreamatic lets brands that advertise through streaming music apps and podcasts (for instance) have interactive voice-based dialogues with consumers. So instead of an audio ad playing in a one-way experience (as all ads currently do), the listener can talk to, and interact with, the ad. The technology can understand the “intent and tone” of consumers’ natural…
