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.

System and Method for Accessible Keyboard Navigation Among Portlets Within a Portal
Currently, navigation among portlets contained within a portal environment, although tedious if there are numerous portlets, can be achieved easily by simply using a mouse to scroll up/down/left/right within a web page and visually search for the requested portlet. However, for users who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome or require some type of accessibility for navigation without the use of the mouse, there is no obvious technique for scrolling to a portlet containing the desired item within the constraints of a web page. This problem is exacerbated with the conglomeration of portlets within a portal. For example, as shown below in Fig. 1, if a user is presented with a portal, containing several portlets, and requires keyboard accessibility, there is no convenient process for the user to quickly navigate to portlet A. In turn, if the user must visit a series of portlets within a portal, again requiring keyboard accessibility, there is no method for doing so. Instead, the user will be forced to use the up/down/left/right arrow keys to visually scan a page and use the tab key to eventually place focus within an GUI component or link of a portlet to eventually gain an input action within a portlet.
