Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.

CROSS-COUNTRY NETWORK BANDWIDTH
The following computation of cross-country network bandwidth was
contributed by Butler Lampson of PARC.
Consider what happens when a TIP user on the West Coast, connected to a
full-duplex Host on the East Coast, strikes a key on his terminal.
The TIP sends a one-character message (1 packet).
The destination IMP sends a RFNM (1 packet).
The destination Host sends an ALLocate - this seems to be the strategy
used by TENEX Hosts, at least (1 packet).
Thc TIP sends a RFNM for the ALLocate (1 packet).
The same sequence repeats itself, with roles interchanged, for the echo
character (4 packets).
This constitutes 4 packets or 4OOO bits in each direction. The current
cross-country transmission capability of the ARPANET is 3 5OKb phone
lines; ergo, it can only support 3*50000/4000=37.5 such characters per
It may be that RFNMs are transmitted between IMPs more efficiently; at
best this can only double the network capacity.
This computation may help explain why cross-country TIP users (e.g. the
substantial West Coast community of BBN-TENEX users) experience such
bad echo response, at least in bursts: the network itself may be
experiencing momentary peak loads.
If this argument is correct, the proposed remote echoing facilities of
the new TELNET protocol could have a major effect on network operation.
