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.

3-D Scroll Bar
Provided is a technique for scrolling through a collection of objects displayed
in a simulated three-dimensional manner to overcome the difficulties of
conventional scrolling techniques.
The technique is used for scrolling through displayed three-dimensional
collections of objects, e.g., graphical pages in a graphical document. The user is
provided with a scroll box with a visual point of reference into the object being
scrolled. The 3-D scroll box is attached to the graphical 3-D object. The user
can perform "grab and drag" operations on the scroll box to access items in the
3-D object, while the visual point of reference is updated automatically. As an
item in the 3-D object is selected, it can move to the top of the object or "pop-up"
for further operations by the user.
The benefits to the user are an improved technique for navigating through
information displayed and perceived as having depth. Conceptual simplicity is
obtained over conventional scrolling devices designed for 2-D presentation of
