  • Publication number: 20190266235
    Abstract: A method for administering a plurality of Things in a knowledge base includes receiving a statement. A first verb action parses the statement into a parsed Thing. A second verb action evaluates the parsed Thing using a vocabulary, and computes and sets a performable statement Thing having a verb in the vocabulary representing a performable action. A third verb action performs the performable action upon a target Thing, wherein the vocabulary encompasses a set of performable action Things and a set of target Things a performable action Thing can act upon.

  • Publication number: 20190265399
    Abstract: A system includes a plurality of optical identifiers and a reader for the optical identifiers. Each optical identifier has an optical substrate and a volume hologram (e.g., with unique data, such as a code page) in the optical substrate. The reader for the optical identifiers includes an illumination source (e.g., a laser), and a camera. The illumination source is configured to direct light into a selected one of the optical identifiers that has been placed into the reader to produce an image of the associated volume holograms at the camera. The camera is configured to capture the image. The captured image may be stored in a digital format by the system.

  • Publication number: 20190253254
    Abstract: A system and method for securing a resource includes a combination code generator configured to receive a first input sequence and a first panel context and generate a first computed combination code. A second computed combination code is generated from a received second input sequence and a second panel context. A set panels module receives the first computed combination code and the first panel context and re-orders the panels of the first panel context to set the second panel context. a hash key generator converts the received second panel context and the second combination code into a first hash key.

  • Publication number: 20180157993
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method is disclosed for a first (P(TM)) to gain knowledge. The method includes: performing a first P(TM(i)) to interact with a P(TM(thing)) to set a first Thing that is representative of content, performing a second P(TM(i)) to interact with the P(TM(thing)) to parse the content of the first Thing as a second Thing that is representative of a statement, performing a third P(TM(i)) to interact with the P(TM(thing)) to evaluate the statement of the second Thing to compute a third Thing that is representative of a performable statement, and performing a fourth P(TM(i)) to interact with the P(TM(thing)) to perform the performable statement of the third Thing, The fourth P(TM(i)), in performing the performable statement, interacts with P(TM(thing)) to set one or more Things that are representative of posterior knowledge.

  • Publication number: 20180082216
    Abstract: A Thing Machine is provided having a processor, non-transitory memory, non-transitory computer readable media, and performable machine code P(TM). The P(TM) is comprised of a first set of performable machine code actions, having one or more performable machine code P(TM(i)) action, wherein each performable machine code P(TM(i)) action is configured as an implementation of an algorithmic procedure of a model, wherein a first P(TM(i)) provides an action of self-configuring a first vocabulary of Things in said non-transitory memory of the Thing Machine, said Things representative of Things that said processor can perform as actions, and the set of Things an action can act upon, and wherein at least one P(TM(i)) machine code action is performed to configure a second vocabulary of Things in the non-transitory memory of the Thing Machine representative of a core vocabulary through which an application can be provided.

  • Publication number: 20060265508
    Abstract: The Namespace Management System comprises a run-time configurable state information management system that evaluates a request within a semantic domain defined by the state information at a given moment in time. The Namespace Management System comprises a Namespace Management application, executing on a computer system that is connected to the Internet or other Autonomous System. The Namespace Management System is programmatically and dynamically configurable to take part in and administer a multiplicity of namespaces, each of which contains listings, data, and services or other state information required to satisfy a request and/or interact with callable services. A multiplicity of Namespace Management Systems can register services, provide services, discover services, communicate with services, and participate in one or more dynamic network namespaces, with each Namespace Management System having at least one associated dynamic network namespace listing.
