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.

Type Element Sorting System
A type element sorting system may be constructed which employs magnetic
scanning means for differentiating among the different type faces, as shown
schematically in the drawing.
Type to be sorted is supplied from a hopper 1 to a suitable aligning means 3
and then is transported past a sensing station 5 to a plurality of receiving pockets
7, only two of which are shown in order to simplify the drawing. Each of the
pockets 7 has associated therewith a selectively operable diverter 9 operated by
an associated actuator 11. The actuators 11 are under the control of a
recognition system 13, which in turn is governed by sensing signals received
from one or more magnetic probes 15 at the sensing station 5.
In operation, as the type elements are moved past the sensing station 5, the
relative motion between the type elements and the probe(s) 15 generates signals
which are characteristic of the type face. These signals are analyzed by the
recognition system 13, which then supplies control signals, delayed by an
appropriate amount, to the actuator 11, so that when the type elements arrive at
the pocket corresponding to the type face which they carry, they will be diverted
to that pocket.
