Health Discovery Corporation (“Health Discovery”, “HDC” or the “Company”), an intellectual property development company with an intellectual property portfolio using patent protected advanced mathematical techniques, announced today that it has filed an infringement lawsuit against Intel Corporation (“Intel”) (NASDAQ: INTC). This infringement suit pertains to Health Discovery’s Support Vector Machine-Recursive Feature Elimination methods (“SVM-RFE”) patents.
On February 27, 2019, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) ruled in favor of Health Discovery on the SVM-RFE Patents in the Interference proceeding between HDC and Intel. The Patent Trial and Appeal Board (“PTAB”) of the USPTO issued its decision, finding that Health Discovery is entitled to claim exclusive rights to the SVM-RFE technology as set forth in the patent application that was filed to provoke the Interference. The decision ordered Intel’s Patent No. 7,685,077 to be cancelled. The decision also dismissed Intel’s motions challenging the validity of Health Discovery’s pending claims and issued patents covering SVM-RFE.
