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.

Dynamically Changing Cursors
Provided is a technique to allow selection cursors to automatically vary in
size and shape depending upon the cursored item to overcome deficiencies with
conventional cursor definitions.
The technique allows the selection cursor to vary automatically in size,
shape, and other characteristics to allow highlighting of objects or selections of
variable size. For example, a list showing font size numbers in actual size
requires a cursor that increases or decreases in vertical and horizontal size as
the size of the selection varies. The cursor size also varies as the font is
changed. Similarly, as object or selection colors change, the selection cursor
automatically changes to allow for variance in showing selected emphasis.
The main benefit to the user is a conceptually simple selection cursor without
arbitrarily restrictive sizes, and screen space is conserved for selections which
are variable in size.
