Online Tool Allows Indian Innovators to Create Patent Applications for Free

Strategic Inventor, the online patent drafting tool developed by BananaIP Counsels, also provides inventors and organisations with expert IP support

INDIA, January 26, 2021 / — BananaIP has recently announced the launch of Strategic Inventor, an online platform that enables inventors to draft and file patents on their own. The technology, available for users all over India, can be used free of charge to draft as many applications as needed.

Conceived by Dr Kalyan C. Kankanala, Managing Partner of BananaIP Counsels, the Strategic Inventor system allows Indian inventors and organisations to draft both provisional and complete specifications patent applications. While the cost of drafting a patent in India accounts for a significant part of the patent attorney fee, Strategic Inventor allows any inventor to create a free draft version by themselves. Once the patent specification is drafted, the inventor may choose to file it on their own or approach a patent attorney for review and filing.

“With Strategic Inventor and its AI-driven patent system, we hope to empower young inventors and start-ups all over India to draft, file, and acquire patents independently, without having to worry about the costs involved in the process,” says Dr Kalyan C. Kankanala. “By doing so, our firm seeks to increase and enhance patent filings in India. Our own technology is the subject of a patent filing, which is currently pending.”

Although any person looking to draft a free patent in India may use the platform, Strategic Inventor may be particularly useful for independent inventors, researchers, universities, start-ups, small and medium enterprises, and companies with limited intellectual property (IP) budgets.

The instructions for the use of Strategic Inventor are simple and rather straight-forward, as the different modules in the system provide inputs from different perspectives to the user. “All an Inventor needs to do is register on the platform and start using it once the registration is approved,” says Dr. Kalyan. “By using the technology to draft patent applications, the inventor can do away with, or even reduce the cost of acquiring patents.”

The online patent application platform also includes the option to seek expert support during the process of drafting a patent specification. For a fee, the Inventor may ask for expert inputs at any point in time. In addition to this feature, the inventor may request a patent attorney to review the same before filing the patent application once the patent draft is completed. Other IP support services may also be sought at the inventor’s discretion.

More information about Strategic Inventor and instructions to register and use the platform can be found at

About Strategic Inventor
Strategic Inventor is an initiative of BananaIP Counsels. It has been conceived, developed, and made available as a part of the firm’s initiatives towards IP knowledge dissemination and empowerment. Through Strategic Inventor, BananaIP hopes to enable and empower inventors and innovators to draft, file and acquire patents by themselves, without much reliance on patent attorneys.

Rare Earth Mining Media Alert for Defense Metals (TSX-V: $DEFN.V) (OTCQB: $DFMTF)


Defense Metals Corp. (TSX:DEFN.V)

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, January 26, 2021 / — Media alert for Defense Metals Corp. (TSX-V: DEFN / OTCQB: DFMTF / FSE: 35D) from Newswire. The company was featured in the following article : “LYNAS RARE EARTHS, DEFENSE METALS, ARAFURA RESOURCES – RARE EARTHS: STILL IN TIME TO GET IN BEFORE THE BOOM!”

Full article and Original source

China has dominated the rare earths market for a long time. A supply shortage in the People's Republic and a substantial increase in demand can lead to a massive price increase of the commodity group at any time. These price increases are then often reflected in the share price of relevant players. Rare earth metals are in demand in a wide range of industries and to close the emerging supply gap the production of rare earth metals must be increased outside of China. We present three opportunity stocks that will benefit from industry trends and scarcity prices as producers or prospective producers.

The Canadian exploration Company is focused on advancing the Wicheeda Rare Earth Project, which covers approximately 1,700 hectares in the state of British Columbia. The resource estimate includes 4.89 million tonnes of indicated light rare earth elements (LREO) at an average grade of 3.02% and an inferred resource of 12.1 million tonnes at an average LREO grade of 2.90%.

Recently, the Company announced that it would receive government funding in conjunction with the Saskatchewan Research Council to provide financial support for technological innovation. Specifically, the project is to conduct test work using an innovative X-ray method to improve the recovery of rare earth metals. The government will cover 70% of the costs.

Things are moving forward at Defense Metals. The Company is benefiting from rising rare earth prices and from further development of the project. With a current market capitalization of CAD 25 million, Defense Metals is still a bargain.

Facing Post-Graduation Planning Crisis, 140,000 Wisconsin Teens Now Have Access to Free Financial Planning App

Two teens and an educator use a laptop to access the Money Path app

Teens at a Wisconsin high school use the Money Path app to create a plan for life after graduation

Nonprofit, investment firm and state agency cooperate to bring financial goal-planning tool to high schools throughout state of Wisconsin

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, January 26, 2021 / — Faced with the generational challenge of planning for their futures amid a pandemic, Wisconsin high school students now have access to a free financial empowerment app thanks to a new effort by a local nonprofit, investment firm and state agency.

Money Path, the game-changing teen financial education and planning tool from Milwaukee nonprofit SecureFutures, will now be available at no cost to high schools throughout the state of Wisconsin. The roll-out of Money Path to high school educators is taking place in cooperation with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and with the financial support of Heartland Advisors.

Money Path is a web-based app that uniquely links academic and career planning with financial planning, allowing high school students to chart a course towards their life goals. In a year when nearly fifty percent of high school seniors changed their post-graduation plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, preparing teens to make sound career and financial decisions is all the more crucial in building economic health for individuals, families and communities. The app will be made available in multiple formats, including through Xello, the platform used by Wisconsin public high schools for college and career planning.

“We are so excited to have Money Path in our high schools to support our students and educators,” said Sheila Briggs, Wisconsin Assistant State Superintendent, Division for Academic Excellence. “It’s a unique and powerful tool that helps students make decisions about their future academic and career path as well as understand how to plan their financial future.”

The statewide expansion is made possible through a generous lead gift from Bill and Marian Nasgovitz and Heartland Advisors. Heartland, the founding sponsor of Money Path, is an independent investment firm in Milwaukee. In addition to sponsoring the statewide expansion, Heartland also provided the initial funding for the app’s development.

“We view our support of Money Path as an investment in bright young minds throughout the community,” said Bill Nasgovitz, founder and chairman of Heartland Advisors. “The skills and concepts students develop through the program are essential building blocks that can lead to a lifetime of financial security and informed decision making.”

Money Path: details & teen testimonial

The Money Path app guides students through an intuitive, step-by-step simulation of life after graduation, integrating up-to-date data on post-secondary education and job training costs and career starting salaries. It allows students to connect the dots between career path and pay, college expenses and student loan debt, managing a budget, and establishing a timeline for achieving important financial goals like purchasing a car or home and saving for retirement.

Since Money Path was first rolled out in 2018, more than 6,000 young people have benefitted from the app. Ninety-five percent of Money Path users said the app will be useful in helping them build a good plan for their financial future.

Miles, a high school senior in Milwaukee, described Money Path as “a really eye-opening experience.”

“It also got a conversation started with my parents, which makes us more prepared,” Miles said. “In my family we haven’t really talked about finances. It was a very helpful tool overall in deciding how to plan the rest of my future, especially financially.”

“Money Path is a truly life-changing tool, and expanding access throughout Wisconsin will allow more young people to confidently plan their futures and build financially secure lives, families, and communities,” said Brenda Campbell, President and CEO of SecureFutures. “We're so grateful to Heartland for their support — this is an important investment in the next generation and the long-term financial health of our state."

Software de triagem da CureMetrix baseado em IA para mamografia recebe aprovação da ANVISA no Brasil

cmTriage – ANVISA Aprovado – Triagem, Sort, Priorizar a lista de trabalho de mamografia

cmTriage™ da CureMetrix® ajuda a triar e priorizar o fluxo de trabalho de mamografia para radiologistas.

o uso do cmTriage demonstra uma melhora significativa nas medidas de desempenho da mamografia, assim como o potencial para redução substancial da carga de trabalho”

— Dra. Alyssa Watanabe, Diretora Médica da CureMetrix

LA JOLLA, CA, UNITED STATES, January 27, 2021 / — A CureMetrix, Inc., uma empresa global de tecnologia de saúde que desenvolve softwares baseados em Inteligência Artificial (IA) para radiologia, agora tem o cmTriage™, seu software de triagem baseado em IA para mamografia, registrado na Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária (ANVISA). O registro obtido junto à ANVISA (81464750075) permite que a CureMetrix comercialize o cmTriage™ para práticas de radiologia no Brasil.

O cmTriage é uma ferramenta de otimização de fluxo de trabalho que usa IA para sinalizar casos suspeitos de mamografia na lista de trabalho de radiologia. Em vez de analisar as mamografias na ordem de entrada, o cmTriage auxilia os radiologistas a personalizarem, classificarem e priorizarem rapidamente suas listas de trabalho com base em casos que podem precisar de atenção imediata.

O cmTriage também é a primeira solução de triagem baseada em IA aprovada pelo FDA para mamografia nos EUA. Com base em pesquisas recentes, o cmTriage ajuda a agilizar o processo de análise, oferecendo uma leitura até 40% mais rápida de casos normais. Em um estudo recente, foi demonstrado que os radiologistas podem, usando o cmTriage, o qual apresenta sensibilidade de 93%, ter uma redução de 63% da carga de trabalho, sem prejuízo nos diagnósticos de câncer e com uma redução ou eliminação de falsos negativos.

A Dra. Alyssa Watanabe, Diretora Médica da CureMetrix, afirma que “o uso do cmTriage demonstra uma melhora significativa nas medidas de desempenho da mamografia, assim como o potencial para redução substancial da carga de trabalho.”

Depois de um ano sem precedentes que exigiu que muitas práticas de radiologia fossem alteradas rapidamente para adequar-se às restrições do COVID-19, os radiologistas que usam o cmTriage™ têm o potencial de se recuperar rapidamente. Classificar e priorizar suas cargas de trabalho os ajudará a lidar com um acúmulo de exames de rotina e diagnosticar com mais precisão os pacientes que podem ter mamografias atrasadas por causa da pandemia.

“Simplificar as cargas de trabalho não economiza apenas o tempo dos radiologistas”, diz Navid Alipour, diretor executivo da CureMetrix. “De acordo com os dados mais recentes, os primeiros sinais de câncer de mama são perdidos, em média, em cerca de 50 por cento das vezes. O uso de um software de triagem inteligente permite que os radiologistas foquem onde é necessário e identifiquem um maior número de casos de câncer de mama mais cedo, melhorando as taxas de sobrevida de pacientes em todo o mundo. Temos o prazer de oferecer aos médicos no Brasil e às suas pacientes uma ferramenta que aumenta a capacidade dos radiologistas de diagnosticar com mais precisão o câncer de mama e salvar mais vidas, e somos gratos à ANVISA pela ágil revisão do registro do cmTriage.”

Oferecendo CAD that Works®, a CureMetrix é líder global em inteligência artificial para imagens médicas e está comprometida com o avanço da tecnologia que melhora as taxas de sobrevida ao câncer em todo o mundo.

Nossa missão é salvar vidas e apoiar melhores resultados clínicos e financeiros.

A CureMetrix foi recentemente indicada como uma das finalistas no Fast Company’s 2020 Innovation By Design awards, e venceu o 2019 Aunt Minnie awards, homenageando a inovação e excelência no campo da radiologia. Visite

Sobre as Soluções CureMetrix
A CureMetrix é a criadora das soluções IA de mamografia cmTriage™ e cmAssist®
O cmTriage é a primeira solução de triagem baseada em IA aprovada pela FDA para mamografia nos EUA. Estudos mostraram que, com o cmTriage, os radiologistas podem realizar uma redução de até 30% no tempo de leitura da mamografia, apoiando a prática geral para agilizar a carga de trabalho.

Em estudos publicados no Journal of Digital Imaging, o IA-CAD da Curemetrix cmAssist demonstrou a capacidade de reduzir falsos positivos em 69% em relação ao CAD tradicional e ajudar os radiologistas a melhorarem suas taxas de detecção de câncer de mama em média 27%, sem aumentar as taxas de recall.

JUPITER, FL, USA, January 26, 2021 / — A new company led by experts in green energy solutions wants to help facilities managers, property managers, and building owners worldwide transition to running energy efficient commercial operations.

Energy Pro Inc. ( is a supplier in the global energy monitoring and management industry offering clients best-in-class solutions to key problems related to energy efficiency.

In the age of COVID-19, Energy Pro is now helping commercial clients upgrade to Germicidal Ultraviolet Lighting (GUV), a type of lighting that is both efficient and effective at deactivating disease-causing viruses and bacteria in interior environments.

According to company founder and CEO Fred Morrill, in addition to helping clients profit by transitioning to the use of smart building technologies, Energy Pro's products exist to help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for greater corporate social responsibility.

“By harnessing the power of the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data and Artificial Intelligence (AI), companies everywhere are seeing tremendous savings as they begin incorporating clean energy technologies,” he said. “Not only will you save money by working with us, you’ll also create more pleasant interior environments for your guests and employees.”

The presence of a large number of small firms focusing on niche markets is offering significant opportunities for larger investment banking firms. This is driving the M&A activity in the investment banking industry, and such investment banking market trends drive the market.

The global investment banking market size is expected to grow from $102.84 billion in 2020 to $111.45 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.4%.

According to investment banking market analysis, the market is expected to reach $137.97 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 5%.
