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.

"Window Shades" Capability
Provided is a technique for displaying more than one set of information in a
single window in order to overcome the deficiencies of current implementations.
The user is provided with conventional window functions. In addition, the
user is provided with "Window Shades", i.e., window-sized pulldowns (top,
bottom, side) which can be dragged by the user from a defaulted "closed"
position to an "opened" position. The Window Shades can be used to display
other application information within the window, e.g., another object or another
view of the same object. A blank Window Shade can be used to hide/lock
window information. The user can have multiple shades opened to various
lengths. The Window Shades would function conceptually like wall-mounted
map boards. The user can close the Shades as required. Conventional actions
are allowed upon information contained in the Window Shade.
An alternative technique is "window shutters" to see thru the information
displayed in a window to a layer of information "below" the window surface.
The benefits to the user include new function, reduced screen space
requirements, enhanced productivity and usability, and more natural/simplified
methods for using multiple levels of information in a single window.
