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.

A Graphical Approach to Linguistic Functions
A graphical approach to access and use of system linguistic functions as
opposed to conventional menu-based approaches is described.
The graphical user interface to the linguistics functions begins with an icon
which is displayed in a cross-system toolkit of functions. The icon represents
access to dictionary services, which includes spelling, thesaurus, grammatical,
and other linguistics services functions. When selected, a graphical
representation of an indexed dictionary is displayed in a window. The
appearance is similar to a "cardfile-like" presentation; direct manipulation
techniques are valid for scrolling or accessing specific items in the indexed file.
A small interactive parameter entry field is provided for direct access of specific
terms. Selections display the term, its definition if provided, synonyms, etc. Cut
and paste functions from the dictionary are provided.
The advantages to the end user are that the function is easier to access and
learn than current approaches. The user also has the benefit of a graphical and
highly visible technique for accessing and viewing terms across multiple
applications and in a systems environment. This approach reduces operator
errors and subsequent rework, thus eliminating extra keystrokes and time spent.
The approach is also quicker to access, activate, and deactivate, thus saving
