The chapter presents software for extracting predicate-argument constructions that characterizing the composition of the structural elements of the inventions from cyber-physics domain and the relationships between them. The extracted structures reconstruct the component structure of the invention in the form of a net. Such data is further converted into a domain ontology and used in the field of information support of automated invention. A new method for extracting structured data from patents has been proposed taking into account the specificity of the text of patents and is based on the shallow parsing and segmentation of sentences. The ontology scheme includes the structural elements of technical objects as the concepts and the relationship between them, as well as supporting information on the invention. The results suggest that the proposed approach is promising. A further direction of research is seen by the authors in improving the existing method for extracting data and expanding ontology.
