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.

Retrieval of Information From Disc Storage Unit
Documents or jobs stored on a disc are machine retrievable upon input
keying directed to an anticipated log.
It is well-known to log jobs with letters of the alphabet, titles, etc. In order to
retrieve these jobs, it is necessary for an operator to utilize a handwritten log,
sequentially key down through the alphabet for a partial display of each job or
title, mentally note the job location, etc. For example, assume that a desired job
is identified in a log on the disc only by the letter "K". If this has not been
mentally or physically noted by the operator, alphabet keying is required to obtain
a partial document printout or display for locating the job. It is also well-known to
log jobs by words, phrases and titles. In this case, every character is keyed for a
word included in the log, and then matches are printed out or displayed for
operator verification or selection. This presents a substantial improvement over
the previously mentioned alphabet logging and retrieval scheme, but excessive
keying is still a drawback.
In order to better aid an operator in terms of increasing throughput and
improving productivity, minimum character keying toward an anticipated log has
been established as a target for rapid and uncomplicated retrieval. In attempting
to meet this target, the first important consideration is log space. In order that the
operator be provided with a reasonable degree of logging flexibility, the log must...
