Health Discovery Corporation Issues Update On Developments Relating To Intel RFE-SVM Patent

Health Discovery Corporation (OTCBB: HDVY) is pleased to announce that a request for reexamination of Intel Corporation’s U.S. Patent No. 7,685,077 was filed this week in the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The request challenges Intel’s alleged rights to the RFE-SVM method as claimed in their patent entitled “Recursive Feature Eliminating Method Based on a Support Vector Machine.” The challenge is based upon the failure of the Patent Office to properly consider relevant prior art during the original examination of Intel’s patent application. This prior art includes the original 2002 publication by Guyon, Weston, Barnhill and Vapnik, which first described the RFE-SVM method, prior published patent applications of HDC, and published articles by others who reference the 2002 Guyon et al. paper, all of which predate the filing date of the Intel application.

In accordance with Patent Office rules, the filing of the request for reexamination was accompanied by written notice to Intel that the validity of its patent is being challenged. This represents the first direct notice to Intel of the Company’s prior rights in the RFE-SVM technology. The Company expects this notice to be followed shortly by notification of Intel by the U.S. Patent Office that interference proceedings have been initiated involving the same patent.

The value of the Company’s RFE-SVM technology is underscored by the identification of recently-published patent applications by several commercial entities and research institutions describing the use of RFE-SVM for various purposes. The published applications include one filed by Intel describing a smart phone sensor that uses SVM and RFE-SVM to analyze sensor input.
