Almost like a genome sequence, only difference is instead of letters A, T, C, G, the contract document is made up of sequence of clause categories-symbols.

This terse representation is effective in various downstream machine learning based natural language processing workflows such as document similarity, contract type classification, etc.

Here is the full patent.
