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.

Technique for Font/Size Switch for NLS User Interfaces
Provided is an automatic method for accommodating NLS expansion by
changing character fonts and sizes as opposed to conventional character
truncation or word wrapping techniques.
As a language is changed from U.S. English to other languages, there are
occasions when expansion is required to accommodate the effects of translation.
The effect in conventional user interfaces is to wrap or truncate the action bars,
function key areas, and instructions. This reduces the amount of display space
available for user data.
The proposed technique provides an algorithm which compares the space
requirements of the new language to the available space on the action bar,
function key area, and instruction area. If the space required is less than is
available, the fonts and sizes are automatically reduced until a fit is achieved.
The benefits to the end user are consistency in location of function and
information across languages. The benefits to the developer of software which is
translated is a simple method of developing equally usable software across
