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.

MAKE READY SET SUBROUTINE (For a Recirculating DOCUMENT Feeder)
A program is disclosed that assists the operator of a photocopier with a
recirculating document feeder (e.g., the IBM Series III Model 85) in the creation
of a "make ready set".
A "make ready set" is simply a copy of all the originals that an operator
intends to use in one copy job. There are two main reasons for creating this
make ready set: 1. Certain types of paper are more likely to cause misfeeds in
the document feeder. These misfeeds may be avoided by use of the make ready
set, since the document feeder has been optimized to handle paper types
comparable to the output copy paper used in the photocopy process. 2. The
operator may wish to maintain the original documents in good condition.
Repeated cycling through the document feeder may, over an extended period,
deteriorate the condition of the original documents.
The MAKE READY SET SUBROUTINE facilitates the creation of a make
ready set when excessive document feeder errors are encountered during a
single copy job or before a copy job is initiated.
Fig. 1 diagrams the interface to the MAKE READY SET SUBROUTINE from
the present operator interface. Code already exists to alert the operator when
excessive failures are encountered in the recirculating document feeder; an
option would be provided in this machine state to transfer program control to the
MAKE READY SET SUBROUTINE in Fig. 2. An additional option would be
provided in the programmability function menu for creation of a make ready set
before the copy job is initiated; if selected, program control is transferred to the
MAKE READY SET SUBROUTINE, also in Fig. 2.
