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 and System for Implementing User Hindrance Threshold Analysis and Optimization through Behavior Analytics
Generally, an advertiser may want to maximize advertisements in a video without causing viewers to switch from the video to a different video or application . Sometimes it is desirable to hinder a user's use of a computing resource without halting the usage . For example, the advertiser can deliver a maximum quantity of advertising to a user
while the user is watching television. This may be posed as a control problem, wherein
a cost functions of hindrance is an external factor driving the system model towards instability. Once the instability is achieved, a user is assumed to switch applications. The goal then is to find a system model that is both stable and that maximizes hindrance without suffering this instability due to external factors .
Disclosed is a method for modifying hindrance to a user of an application while modeling a user's hindrance threshold for switching to a different application . Firstly, the system observes a user's tolerance for hindrance by measuring user's reactions through application of different levels of hindrance and creates a model of user cognition under the control of certain hindrance signals . Then, the system uses a global user model to predict how a user reacts to a new or longer hindrance (or) change in frequency of hindrance. Subsequently, the system determines user's hindrance thresholds through observation...
