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.
Hypertext links based on a pre-existing navigation system can be dynamically inserted into html files to prevent link maintenance in html files.

Dynamic hypertext link generation based on contextual hierarchy
Maintaining hypertext links in static html files is often time consuming and error prone.
Often the files pointed to by the links are moved and the links have to be changed. If
the link appears in multiple files, it must be changed in each file. The problem
becomes more pronounced in cases where a hierarchical navigation system exists and
the links must be changed to match changes to the navigation and vice versa. Another
case where static links become a problem is when the html file containing the links is
used in multiple contexts and therefore would require different links in each context.
One way to solve this problem would be to include two files: one for each
context. The problem with this option is it requires duplication. Another option would
be to use server-side includes for the links. But this still requires separate include files
for the links in each context.
The solution in these cases is to add the links dynamically to html at runtime
based on the context of whatever navigation hierarchy was being used. This allows
easy reuse of the html file, prevents defects and saves maintenance and development
time (because the html author does not have to be concerned about link management).
The prototype for this concept was a frames-based application with an applet in
the left hierarchical navigation frame. The applet inserts the links into the html file when
the html file is loaded into the rig...
