  • Patent number: 7657493
    Abstract: Personal data mining mechanisms and methods are employed to identify relevant information that otherwise would likely remain undiscovered. Users supply personal data that can be analyzed in conjunction with data associated with a plurality of other users to provide useful information that can improve business operations and/or quality of life. Personal data can be mined alone or in conjunction with third party data to identify correlations amongst the data and associated users. Applications or services can interact with such data and present it to users in a myriad of manners, for instance as notifications of opportunities.

  • Patent number: 7647522
    Abstract: The claimed subject matter provides a system and/or a method that facilitates re-locating a web application associated with a network service utilizing a portion of serialized data. The network service can be any collection of resources that are maintained by a party (e.g., third-party, off-site, etc.) and accessible by an identified user over a network (e.g., WAN, Internet, etc.). A receiver component can receive a request for initiating and execution of a process that is maintained by the network service. A servicing component can analyze representations of multiple processes within the network service and determines whether to enable initiation and execution of the process based at least in part upon the analysis.

  • Publication number: 20080091613
    Abstract: Innovative aspects provided herein pertain to digital rights management (DRM) and/or enforcement in conjunction with remote network clouds and services. Digital rights management licenses/rights/policies can be applied to personal files to facilitate worry free remote storage and/or file sharing. These rights can be identity-centric rather than machine centric, thereby facilitating access and usage from any network device anywhere. Various mechanisms are also disclosed to deter assorted uses of content and/or encourage rights acquisition as an alterative or in addition to technologically prohibitive means. Additionally, a system and method are provided that can afford a frictionless marketplace for file distribution, wherein content is protected and freely distributed and identity-centric rights can be purchased to access the content.

  • Publication number: 20080082671
    Abstract: A system and method that facilitates and effectuates communications between disparate clients that reside in a network topology (e.g., cloud). The system and method provides a component that receives one or more prospective end points, a set of desired communication criteria/characteristics, and desired content extant on one of the clients that reside on network topology. Additionally, the system and method provides a component that establishes communications pathways to one or more prospective end points or to subsequently identified end points to facilitate transfer of desired content from the end point to a requesting client.

  • Publication number: 20080082465
    Abstract: An intelligent personalized agent monitors, regulates, and advises a user in decision-making processes for efficiency or safety concerns. The agent monitors an environment and present characteristics of a user and analyzes such information in view of stored preferences specific to one of multiple profiles of the user. Based on the analysis, the agent can suggest or automatically implement a solution to a given issue or problem. In addition, the agent can identify another potential issue that requires attention and suggests or implements action accordingly. Furthermore, the agent can communicate with other users or devices by providing and acquiring information to assist in future decisions. All aspects of environment observation, decision assistance, and external communication can be flexibly limited or allowed as desired by the user.

  • Patent number: 7254569
    Abstract: The present invention provides a unique system and method that can employ machine learning techniques to automatically fill one or more fields across a diverse array of web forms. In particular, one or more instrumented tools can collect input or entries of form fields. Machine learning can be used to learn what data corresponds to which fields or types of fields. The input can be sent to a central repository where other databases can be aggregated as well. This input can be provided to a machine learning system to learn how to predict the desired outputs. Alternatively or in addition, learning can be performed in part by observing entries and then adapting the autofill component accordingly. Furthermore, a number of features of database fields as well as constraints can be employed to facilitate assignments of database entries to form values—particularly when the web form has never been seen before by the autofill system.

  • Publication number: 20070005573
    Abstract: A method and system for customizing a search of a data source linked to a computer in response to a search request from a user. A search tool application (STA) is executed on a client computer in response to the search request received from the user. The STA determines the context of a software application active when the STA is executed. The STA determines a scope of data to search based on the determined context. A user-interface is responsive to a search term received from a user to initiates a search the determined scope of data for content that matches the received search term. The results of the search are displayed in the UI.

  • Publication number: 20060294223
    Abstract: A web accelerator reduces web latency experienced when retrieving and displaying content. The web accelerator includes an interceptor component, a resolver component, a predictor component and a tracer component. The interceptor component captures web requests. The web requests are tracked by the tracer component, which logs the web requests to generate a statistical model that reflects web browsing activity. The predictor component utilizes the statistical model to predict subsequent web requests, and the resolver component resolves hostnames specified in the subsequent web requests and pre-loads content specified in the subsequent web requests when there is a strong likelihood that a user is interested in the content specified in the subsequent web requests.

  • Publication number: 20060294063
    Abstract: Application launching on a computer via indexed data. Based on a search term entered by a user, the computer searches an index containing metadata representative of one or more applications installed on the computer. A user interface on the computer's display has a window for displaying the results of searching the index. In addition, the user interface receives user input to select an application from the search results to be initiated. The computer is responsive to the user input via the user interface for initiating the selected application installed on the computer. A computer-readable medium including a persistent component, an index component, a query component, and an execution component embodies further aspects of the invention.

  • Publication number: 20060179404
    Abstract: The present invention provides at least a method for automatically filling forms appearing on web pages. With respect to the present invention, a user populates personal information such as addresses, credit cards, and passwords in a tool to subsequently fill forms without re-typing the same. The user may input the personal information or retrieve it from another source. The tool gives the user flexibility in selecting the personal information to be populated in the form.
