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.

Magnetic Stripe Reader with Audio Confirmation
An operator scans a wand across magnetically encoded data on a card. A
processor translates the information into synthesized speech supplied back to
the operator to confirm proper data entry.
A card, or other substrate, carries a magnetic stripe encoded with data in a
predefined format. As the operator scans a magnetic sensor wand along the
stripe, serial data accumulates in a serial to parallel converter which then
transfers it to a buffer in parallel. A processor receives data from the buffer,
stores it in memory, translates it to readable characters, and displays the data. A
table in memory supplies phonetic pattern data, as a function of the scanned
data, to a voice synthesizer which then generates words and phrases
representing the data.
The magnetic stripe may be encoded by an IBM 3642 Data Collection
System and scanned by an IBM Hand-Held Magnetic Wand Scanner. An IBM
Series/1 Computer System may process the data for an Audio Response System
of Votrax, Inc. (Troy, Michigan).
