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.

Just it time compiler (JIT) testing using self checking randomly generated test cases
A Java* just-in-time compiler (JIT) receives a Java class file and turns it into machine instructions appropriate to the hardware architecture on which the program is running. It also performs various optimizations on the code in an attempt to make the resulting program execution be as fast as possible.
The Java class files which the JIT needs to be able to compile are infinite in variation possibilities. The testing of the JIT therefore lends itself to automatic test case generation techniques where a test program generates other Java programs which are given to the JIT to compile.
The first type of error which this testing might provoke is that the JIT is unable to compile the test case successfully resulting in a fatal failure of the generated code or a failure of the JIT itself. Either of these failures would cause the Java virtual machine to crash, thereby pointing out the error. A second type of error which this testing might provoke is that the JIT produces valid machine instructions for the platform on which it is running, but the instructions are incorrect with respect to the logic of the (Java) program. Detecting this type of defect is a problem because the Java program itself was generated automatically and the correct result of its execution is not known. This submission proposes a solution to this second problem. 1. As part of the test case generation process, each time an object is created, a reference to...
