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.

Computing Next Logical Product to calculate the next optimal thing to sell using a compute GRID of Call centre operator PC's
When a caller calls a call centre to purchase or make an enquiry, it is often thought to be an optimal time to propose a cross sell or up sell to increase the customer portfolio or increase wallet share. To achieve this we need to calculate the next logical product within a set of constraints. This can be a computational complex problem, requiring a large amount of compute resource, and for that reason is typically avoided. Given that in a typical call centre each operator is working with a PC type device, and that it is extremely unlikely all of these terminals are 100% computationally saturated, we propose a system which utilises a standard GRID compute toolkit to interlink all of the workstations together with a view to harnessing their computational resource. The objective of this computation is: given an inbound call from a customer, to calculate and re-calculate the next best product to offer during the call, based on the responses from the individual, known history of the individual, and the constraints of the business in offering that product.
When a call is initially received the customer behaviour profile (CPB) is retrieved from a suitable computer based medium. Next, if this is an inventory based product base, then shared amongst the network of available computational resources on the GRID, are sets of avail...
