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.

Source-Independent Virtual Motion Chair
a method of controlling virtual reality motion
base, either a chair or platform, without a direct program control
interface with the video source.
reality motion chairs and platforms simulate motion by
moving or tilting the user in synchronism with a video source. The
source of the video stream typically generates the control signals
for the motion base. The video source,
whether it is a game or
passive video, has to provide the sound, video, and motion control
information. These are highly customized
data streams and only work
for specific motion bases and have to be hand crafted for each use.
invention is a means to generate the control information
for the motion base independent of the source.
This would give the
user a much larger selection of video sources that could be enhanced
with virtual motion.
There are a
large number of video sources including computer
games, broadcast television, VCR tapes, and special first person
perspective video sequences that would benefit from virtual motion.
Without special hand crafting, these video sources cannot be used
with any present motion bases.
idea of this invention is to use a computer to
analyze the video signal being displayed to the user and extract the
apparent motion to control the motion base.
Moving Pictures Experts
Group (MPEG) compression techniques use motion detection algorithms
to determine the motion of each group of 16 x 16 pixals. By
analyzing the motion of each small area of the scene, it is possible
to determine how the camera was moving relative to the background
when the scene was recorded. This motion
information can be used to
control the motion base to simulate motion.
