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.

Categorizing footnotes based on buffer capacity and offloading long
footnotes eliminates footnote length constraints normally associated with a
desktop keyboard/display word processing system.
It is desirable to create footnotes during operation in a text create/revise
mode. However, any additional text which is to be included in the document,
such as tables, is created in a separate buffer from the document. This imposes
a size constraint on this additional text due to the limited capacity of the buffer.
Since this text may be footnote text and several pages long, the buffer capacity
limitation must be alleviated if operator flexibility is to be maintained.
This problem is solved by defining footnotes as short and long.
A short footnote can be created and stored in-line during normal
text create/revise operations. To accommodate long footnotes, an
operator may specify a diskette/document name and page number where
the footnote text is to be located. The include-type footnote
thereafter prepared is stored on the identified diskette.
