  • Publication number: 20160062735
    Abstract: Mind-enabled question answering (MEQA) systems (300, 340) and methods (400, 500) produce answers (313) that are not inferable from information available from private databases, online searching or other traditional sources. MEQA systems utilize information provided by using devices (200) and methods that are responsive to an influence of mind. Preferred embodiments of MEQA technology use a Bayesian Network to calculate the probability of an answer's correctness. MEQA systems and methods utilize high speed non-deterministic random number generators (NDRNGs). Preferred NDRNGs (202) achieve high statistical quality without randomness correction, which allows improved response of a mind-enabled device (200, 302).

  • Patent number: 8423297
    Abstract: Mental influence detectors and corresponding methods are useful for detecting an influence of mind and hidden or classically non-inferable information. An anomalous effect detector includes a source of non-deterministic random numbers, a converter to convert a property of numbers, a processor to accept converter output and to produce an output signal representative of an influence of mind. The processor output signal contains fewer numbers than the input. A quantum computer includes a physical source of entropy to generate output numbers; a source of test numbers; a measurement processor to accept output numbers and to measure a relationship between process numbers and at least one test number to produce an output representative of an influence of mind.

  • Patent number: 7752247
    Abstract: An RNG circuit is connected to the parallel port of a computer. The circuit includes a flat source of white noise and a CMOS amplifier circuit compensated in the high frequency range. A low-frequency cut-off is selected to maintain high band-width yet eliminate the 1/f amplifier noise tail. A CMOS comparator with a 10 nanosecond rise time converts the analog signal to a binary one. A shift register converts the serial signal to a 4-bit parallel one at a sample rate selected at the knee of the serial dependence curve. Two levels of XOR defect correction produce a BRS at 20 kHZ, which is converted to a 4-bit parallel word, latched and buffered. The entire circuit is powered from the data pins of the parallel port. A device driver interface in the computer operates the RNG. The randomness defects with various levels of correction and sample rates are calculated and the RNG is optimized before manufacture.

  • Patent number: 4897880
    Abstract: A data acquisition control method and system for alphanumeric character recognition. An unknown pattern is normalized, the normalized pattern is then divided into top and bottom parts. A center of mass is calculated for the two parts and is utilized for vertically aligning the unknown pattern. The vertically aligned pattern is width normalized and feature vectors are obtained. The feature vectors of the unknown pattern are then compared with feature vectors of known patterns stored in memory and the characters are identified.
