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.

Control Panel Configuration for Multiple Machine Models
Fig. 1 shows a control panel 10 for a machine whose different models may
have any combination of controls at apertures 11-13.
All three locations lie in recess 14, and have individual screened or engraved
legends, such as 15. The outside dimensions of plugs 20 fit those of recess 14,
and lie side-by-side, as at locations 12 and 13. The rear of each plug 20 (Fig. 2)
has upstanding walls 21 and darts 22, which snap into any of the apertures 11-
Plugs 20 hide both the aperture and the legend of a control which is not used
for a particular machine model, thus allowing only two different parts to serve a
large number of differently featured machines.
