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.

Partitioning and saving a document/image scan into separate files
Disclosed is a system that is designed to expedite document scanning. Currently, when trying to scan a single document, splitting up the scanned image and then saving it to multiple files is a very inefficient and cumbersome process. Currently, one has to do a separate scan per individual image file saved.
The idea is to provide a user interface to allow a person to partition the scan preview for a single document and save the partitioned scans to separate, user specified image files. In other words, during a scan preview, one will be able to choose regions from the entire preview and specify target scan files for these individual regions. After the initial setup and execution, the partitioned scans will all save to separate files in a single scanning sweep.
The proposed system will require changes to the scanning software user interface. The user interface will offer all the normal scanning options plus a new option to partition a preview scan into separate files as discussed above.
