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 for preserving the individual steps taken in known, successful completion of a repeatable task and using that recording to predict the success or failure of an ongoing attempt at completion of a same or similar task.

Method and System for Predictive State analysis using historical data
Computer based systems today are complex entities. They are made of many parts
and serve many varied functions. In order to make a particular product perform a
certain function in a particular environment, often a significant number of configuration
and set-up steps need to be followed. Many of these are straight-forward, but not all
are fool-proof. One of the most complex aspects of this problem is that many times an
error made in one operation is not noticed until somewhere much further down the line.
This will result at least in a waste of time. Often though, the impact is worse yet in that
subsequent changes have "wound themselves around" the initial error causing
irreparable harm to the system in question.
The goal of this invention is to prevent the above chain of events from occurring,
wherever possible. The objective is to create an environment where any misstep or
error which will result in that "wrong path taken" be identified as quickly as possible.
Identifying an incorrect action quickly will allow correction before follow-on impacts of
that mistake can occur.
The invention consists of 3 main parts. The first part is a recording technology. Many of
these exist today and can be used. The addition to these existing technologies is that
each recording would require the user or system to determine if the stored recording
resulted in a 'good' or a 'bad' state being reached. The second technology is a data
store, to store the set of recording associated with a product or system. This data store
might come prepopulated...
