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.

Method for Placement of Minidisks
A method is described in which the operator doesn't have to worry about
sector numbers of a minidisk during its creation.
In the new method, the starting and ending sector numbers for minidisks and
free space are resolved by the minidisk manager to a minidisk location of high,
medium, low, or a combination of these. The operator can request that a minidisk
which he is creating be placed in a high, medium, or low location, and the
concept of sector numbers is never presented.
Some personal computer systems which employ a hard disk file for data
storage allow the operator to establish a "minidisk" as a relatively small subset of
the main disk storage file. Since the format of the main disk is in sector numbers,
the location of the minidisk on the minidisk must be defined in sector numbers.
