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.

Centralized Network Document Organizer
When a networked printer or copier is installed in an
office environment, a work surface is necessary to sort the output documents
waiting to be picked up. These output documents are generally placed in folders
that are arranged alphabetically. This
necessitates the need for additional space requirements, as a small table or
credenza is required for this activity.
The design for some copiers can accommodate stacking trays at the back of
the machine as shown below. These trays
would allow the customer to file and collate documents that are waiting pick
up, without any additional space requirements.
The illustration below shows a 20" tall tower on either side of a
copier. It would be made of plastic material.
The trays on each side would be allowed for the customer to collate and
sort output from the network. This eliminates the need for a table and a folder or drawer filing system for the customer. This is
a viable solution for a space constrained office area.
