The terms we show below are nothing more than the tip of the tip of the iceberg in Laugment - a collection of terms that contain the word dog or semantic variants, in this case, dogged and canine. The entire Laugment network currently consists of 372,443 terms connected by 1,585,373 "smart" relationships.
In the working version of Laugment, each of these terms has its own network of related terms, and the nature of the relationship to each related term is specifically identified.
You can imagine that many of the related terms in an intentionally constructed intellectual network do not have to have the word "dog" at all. For example, a dog is a "pet" and Laugment knows that, among other things.
To get a little more legalistic, it also knows that a dog is "tangible personal property", "bites" and might have "rabies" along with many, many more aspects of dogs and how they are used, classified, labeled and regulated by people and their legal institutions.
In the working version of Laugment, a click on any of the terms shown below will take you to the individual term's related terms. An individual term can have a few related terms or hundreds, depending on how central it is to life, business, government, law and law practice.
Next, you can view all of that new term's related terms, and navigate freely in, around, and through the vast collection of terms that lies at the core of Laugment.
Any term may have a note or annotation. A term may have associated resources. Users can change the way they look at terms and how much associated information will be displayed about them.
Any term, or even any few letters, can be used as a search term to search the term network to generate a list of all terms containing it, as has been done below for "dog."
Any term can be added to Laugment's brainbank with a click. Any term may be used to generate a tailored search assistant grid that lets you explore the near and far reaches of the Internet in a structured, intentional way that you devise given your term and your goal.
And rest assured that if Laugment knows a lot about dogs, it knows a lot about terms and topics that have far greater commercial and utilitarian value.
Note: Remember, this depiction below is intentionally stripped of all the additional features and powers of Laugment in its working form. The terms below won't "do" anything except to illustrate how you can quickly assess the dog "landscape" in a few seconds in an entirely different, more comprehensible, more comprehensive way than one could ever do in a search engine.
The goal of the working Laugment service is a lot more ambitious: to serve as thinking architecture that can refresh your own memory, spark new thoughts, stimulate your curiosity, and send you on your way to diagnosing, planning, or strategizing your legal problem or situation.
