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.

Automated "WYSIWYG" Presentation of Hardware
Provided is a method of graphically displaying computer system hardware to
which a user has access to eliminate forcing the user to understand the available
devices in a manual and non-visual manner.
The technique provides automatic detection of hardware features to which
the user has access. The system then constructs a visual display of the
hardware devices and connections. As hardware is added or deleted from the
configuration, the system automatically rebuilds the graphic presentation to
reflect the change.
The benefits of the technique are a more usable system in that less time is
required to understand available hardware features, especially as changes are
made over time. The user can easily change configurations with fewer worksteps
and reduced errors. The technique can be applied consistently across different
types of IWS or MFI computer systems.
