Patent examiners play an important role in the whole patent system. Through the examination of patents, they can not only decide whether to grant patents, but also have an important impact on the final quality of patents. In the process of patent examination, the most critical thing is to comment on the novelty and creativity of the examined patent by comparing the previous patent technologies. Therefore, analyzing the patent cited by the patent examiner is an interesting and meaningful work.
