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.

Automatically Synchronized Objects
Automated comparison of objects and highlighting differences reduces
manual comparison and finding of differences. The differences are highlighted
either on a display or other output device.
The technique provides for automatic or user selected incorporation of
highlighted differences into the base object. The objects compared can be either
different computer system files or marked areas within one or more computer
system objects displayed in different documents or windows.
The advantages to the approach are automatic support for user tasks
involving comparison of data or objects, reduced worksteps and errors in
performing such tasks, and a consistent technique across different systems,
applications, and object types.
