  • How to use mergify!

    With mergify! you can add sources to mergeflow directly from your browser, without installing any software.  Possible sources include feeds as well as web pages or PDFs that you view in your browser.  Here is how mergify! works:

  • How to add more documents to your search

    For our example here, we run a search “anomaly detection” OR “intrusion detection” (i.e. documents containing either “anomaly detection” or “intrusion detection”).  Here is the result (click on the screenshot in order to see a larger version).  Notice that your results may vary, depending on the setup of your source repositories:

  • How to add a source

    You can add sources to mergeflow by clicking on “Add source” in the top menu: Then paste the URL of your source into the popup (currently, adding sources works for web feeds).  For our example, we want to add the feed of Bruce Schneier’s blog; Bruce Schneier is a prominent cyber security expert (click on the screenshot in order to… Continue reading "How to add a source"

  • How to use repository-entity-matrices

    mergeflow lets you group search or monitoring results by repository (repositories in mergeflow are collections of internet sources, cf. http://blog.mergeflow.com/2015/01/what-are-repositories/).  In addition to the default repositories provided by mergeflow, you can set up your own repositories (e.g. with journals or blogs you find particularly interesting).

  • How to save filters

    Monitoring profiles (cf. http://blog.mergeflow.com/2015/01/topic-monitoring-profile/) let you save filters.  Resuming our “energy harvesting” monitoring profile (cf. http://blog.mergeflow.com/2015/01/topic-monitoring-profile/), imagine you have a filter consisting of several query terms; imagine further that you would like to check this filter on a regular basis (e.g. to see if there are any updates).

  • How to set up alert feeds

    You can use alert feeds to get updates on a specific search, without having to run the search manually all the time.  Alert feeds also allow you to get updates from mergeflow searches on your smartphone, for example (via feed reader apps on your smartphone). For this example, let us consider “miniaturized satellites”.  Miniaturized satellites or nanosatellites are very small, light weight… Continue reading "How to set up alert feeds"

  • How to use relationship graphs

    Relationship graphs in mergeflow show how objects (people, organizations, technologies, etc. identified by mergeflow) relate to each other.  By “relate to each other”, we mean “appear in a common context in the content of a document”.  Here we illustrate how relationship graphs work. As topics, we selected “named entity recognition”(cf. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Named-entity_recognition) and “social network analysis” (cf. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_network_analysis).  As data source, we… Continue reading "How to use relationship graphs"

  • How to create a custom repository

    mergeflow includes a set of standard repositories (scientific journals, research project descriptions, investor activity updates, company profiles, blogs and news, and a few others).  For more information on these standard repositories, cf. http://blog.mergeflow.com/2015/01/standard-repositories-sources/.
