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.

Development of an ‘N-Down option
This disclosure proposes an N-down feature for a document
scanner that reverses the action of the original scanning (the N-up feature).
In addition to the multiple pages that are normally placed on an N-up print, this
concept proposes that a code could be added to the output to identify this as
an N-up job. This code could also include a job identification number, paper
size information, and an indication of where in the original sequence of pages
these pages belong. If the user selects the N-down feature and scans this print
in, the printing device reconstitutes the job back to its original size. The
primary advantage of such a system is in the reduced cost of the (electronic or
physical) delivery of the described document.
One benefit for being able to “back-scan” multi-images to
their original size is that
faxes would take the minimum transmission times with
substantial cost savings as a result of the multiple-document being
re-constituted at the recipient.
