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.

specify various destination and formatting information prior to the transmission.
A prompt system is incorporated which requires the printing of questions to which
the operator must respond in order to assure that the required information is
entered prior to the transmission of the document. This method leads an operator
