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.

Dissipating Sametime Windows
We are constantly using instant messaging windows to communicate with our colleagues and friends. From instant messaging windows it is quite common to track the status of incoming messages. For example in Lotus Sametime a message is displayed that says "User 1 is typing". This message is a indicator that the user is typing and a response is forthcoming. However in some instances the user sending the message may be distracted and only completes part of the response and gets pulled away to do other things or has to leave the computer for some reason. The receiver of the messaging exchange is left waiting for some response from the sender that ultimately may not come for some time or may not come at all (user decides to not respond and closes the messaging exchange connection).
In this disclosure we propose that after a certain period of time the Sametime window can be completely removed from the sender's and the receiver's desktop. On the sender's side of the instance message communication, once the messaging window is removed from the sender desktop, the user may want to note with a special icon that she/he is due a response from a messaging exchange buddy. On the receiver's side of the messaging exchange session a special icon can be added to the receiver's buddy list that indicated you are due to respond to one of the members in your buddy list and the transcript of the messaging exchange can be saved for further reference.
