  • Publication number: 20190065471
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to the field of language processing. A server (30) is configured to respond to a query associated with a user device (21) by sending, to the user device (21), an indication of an item selected based on semantic importance attributed to grams of text in the query. Attributing semantic importance comprises: in the event that a number of occurrences of the gram in a first document is above an occurrence threshold, determining a gram score for said gram based on said number of occurrences; in the event that the number of occurrences of the gram in the first document is below the occurrence threshold, determining the gram score based on: (i) said number of occurrences, and (ii) a reference score for the gram based on a number of occurrences of the gram in a reference document different to the at least one first document; and attributing the semantic importance based on the gram score.

  • Publication number: 20110082867
    Abstract: A method, system, and computer program product. A method includes receiving a patient profile, the patient profile including a patient substance profile identifying a plurality of substances consumed by a patient and at least one patient-specific gene variant. The method includes identifying a gene associated with a first one of the plurality of substances, and performing a weighing process to determine an interaction between the first substance and the gene. The method includes producing a summary by the data processing system according to the determined interaction. Another method includes identifying at least one additional substance that has a potential effect on the patient, presenting the at least one additional substance to a user, receiving and storing a change to the patient profile based on the at least one additional substance.

  • Patent number: 7246567
    Abstract: An ROV comprising a topside, a fish and an umbilical cable for connecting the topside and the fish together. The fish is adapted to be powered by an onboard battery inductively coupled to the fish. The cable is of a fine diameter to reduce drag through the water. RF transmissions carry control and return signals to and from the fish and topside. The fish has two cameras. The front facing camera is located behind a dual layer flooded dome. A pan and tilt mechanism is fitted to one of the cameras and uses a pivotable gimbal frame driven by a lead nut moving along an arcuate bolt.
