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.

A Method to Provide Table Cell Scrolling
A method is described which allows the operator of an interactive system to
scroll the contents of a cell of a spreadsheet.
Traditional spreadsheets do not allow the operator to key the contents of a
cell directly into the cell, but instead force the operator to use a prompt line.
When entering data directly into a cell, more data may exist than is displayable
within the defined width of a cell. A method for viewing/editing the non-displayed
data is needed.
As the operator enters/edits data the cell is allowed to automatically scroll
one character at a time when the right cell boundary is encountered. To
view/edit the data, the data may be scrolled left or right. If the cell is more than
one character high, the operator may scroll the data up or down into view when
the data exceeds the height of the cell. The following cursor keys are available: -
cursor left, right and boundary right, left keys cause scrolling when the cell
boundary is encountered. - cursor up, down and boundary up, down are
available for more than one character high cells and allows the cursor to go up to
the top and bottom boundary of the cells. - the carrier return key is available for
multiple character high cells and causes the editing cursor to be placed at the
beginning of the next line.
