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 technique to provide comprehensive coverage of any code that was written to implement a particular requirement. A technique to provide traceability between a requirement and implemented code.

Requirements to Code Traceability
Requirements gathering and analysis is the first step of any software project. The ability to add relationships between requirements and other artifacts that are created during the course of software development is critical in tracking changes made to either and how it affects other artifacts within that relationship. This relationship is typically a traceability relationship. Some examples of artifacts are requirements, documents, defects, etc.
There is great value in adding traceability between a requirement and the lines of code that implement this requirement.
Currently there are tools that track changes made to code and create a relationship between these sets of changes and the requirement. There are no techniques or tools that provide a comprehensive coverage of code that was written to implement a particular requirement.
The main idea of this concept is a technique to provide comprehensive coverage of any code that was written to implement a particular requirement. In other words: a technique to provide traceability between a requirement and implemented code.
The capability to create traceability between requirements and snippets of code is of great value to developers and software development managers.
Software development managers can use this to:
Evaluate how much it cost to implement a requirement by looking at the lines of code and complexity
