Patents by Inventor David Linus Ostby

David Linus Ostby has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20200104370
    Abstract: Systems and methods for analyzing a large number of textual passages are described. A computing device receives the textual passages as input and generates a Raw Pair Distance (RPD) table. The device then determines a Node table and an Node-Node Distance (NND) matrix from the RPD table. An energy reduction process is used to generate an NSPACE matrix from the NND matrix. Finally, a 3D visualizer displays aspects of the Nodes table and the NSPACE matrix to a user. The systems and methods may enable a user to quickly search and understand the text relationships within the large number of textual passages.

  • Publication number: 20190324959
    Abstract: A system and method for enterprise searching of documents. The system comprises a computing system configured to receive one or more search terms, and responsively analyze a group of documents to return analysis results. A method for enterprise searching includes indexing the group of documents, determining relevant terms and measuring the context between terms. Relevant portions of documents, also called passages of interest, are determined as part of the analysis process. The analysis also uses a calculated importance value of terms as part of the analysis process.

  • Patent number: 10372718
    Abstract: A system and method for enterprise searching of documents. The system comprises a computing system configured to receive one or more search terms, and responsively analyze a group of documents to return analysis results. A method for enterprise searching includes indexing the group of documents, determining relevant terms and measuring the context between terms. Relevant portions of documents, also called passages of interest, are determined as part of the analysis process. The analysis includes analyzing the passages of interest for words, repeating term sequences, non-consecutive repeating root term sequences, and non-word terms. The terms/sequences are scored and sorted, resulting in a set of high-importance items, allowing a user to quickly subselect search results without reading through the results.
