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.

Accordingly, the present invention discloses an interactive/photographic system that allows a use to point to successively smaller machine parts or subassemblies until the desired assembly or part is selected. Once an item is selected, specific information concerning part number, cost, fasteners, and assembly are displayed. Alternatively, the system works in reverse order thereby allowing the user to enter a specific part number for the purpose of obtaining other information parameters.
Ordering information would be displayed on demand or presented at an appropriate time as, for example, when the toner level is low. The order can be further dispatched in one of several forms including: an electronic network interface, facsimile transmission, or by synthesized voice output.
The video display would show pictures of selected items so that product application information is also available to the user. Pictures of supplies and products would be promoted when the display is otherwise unused.
