  • Patent number: 10235028
    Abstract: Techniques are described for text extraction on graphs. In one example, techniques include receiving a graphical representation of data, the graphical representation of data being a format other than a spreadsheet or table; and receiving user input selecting a portion of the graphical representation of data; and generating one or more text analytics rules based on the selected portion. The graphical representation may be a pie chart or a radial sunburst diagram.

  • Patent number: 10169423
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for ranking answers of question-answer pairs in ground truth. The computer-implemented method includes annotating, via an annotation tool, the domain dictionary, including, at least one or more of lexicons, glossaries, knowledge base query for ranking the question-answer pairs. The computer-implemented method further includes defining search patterns of the annotated domain dictionary. The computer-implemented method further includes searching a documents corpus or knowledge based query of the domain dictionary for candidate answers of the question-answer pairs, based on the defined search patterns, the candidate are returned based on the search.

  • Patent number: 9602453
    Abstract: Aspects of the present invention associate an unsent electronic message with a target file that is attached to a first stored electronic message. A command to attach a file to the unsent electronic message is received. A list identifying one or more files attached to one or more stored electronic messages is displayed. The target file is one of the one or more files. An input identifying the target file is received. One of the target file and a file that identifies a location of the target file on a storage device is attached to the unsent electronic message.

  • Publication number: 20160188610
    Abstract: A technique for suggesting patterns to search documents for information of interest includes acquiring a working set of spans for a document set that includes one or more documents. A list of one or more suggested patterns is generated by applying a pattern suggestion algorithm (PSA) to the set of spans for each document in the document set. One or more unique patterns are generated by applying a pattern consolidation algorithm (PCA) to the generated list of suggested patterns. Pattern information for each of the unique patterns is then generated. The pattern information includes a respective first count that corresponds to the number of times each of the unique patterns occurs in the document set.

  • Patent number: 8990169
    Abstract: A method and system for collecting statistics on database tables. In one embodiment, the method includes identifying a plurality of tables for statistics collection, wherein each table of the plurality of tables are remote tables; examining at least one attribute for each table identified for statistics collection; prioritizing the tables for statistics collection based on the at least one attribute; and collecting statistics on the identified tables in a priority sequence.

  • Patent number: 8392973
    Abstract: A remotely located, uniquely identified resource can serve an application utilized by the Web browser. Access to the application can require authentication including a userid and password. A memory for a record associated with the application can be queried. The memory can include a set of userids and passwords indexed against unique application identifiers that are independent upon server identifiers or URLs. Responsive to querying the memory, a match between the application requiring authentication and a unique application identifier in the memory can be determined. A userid and password can be provided without manual input from a user from memory that is associated with the unique application identifier to the remotely located. The uniquely identified resource can use the userid/password as authentication to access the served application.

  • Patent number: 8190693
    Abstract: A system and method of reclaiming lost Internet customers may involve detecting an outage condition associated with a host of an electronic commerce (e-commerce) web site. Customer data can be extracted from packets destined for the host, wherein the packets could be associated with transactions between customers and the web site. The extracted customer data may be stored and, upon detecting a resolution of the outage condition, a customer database can be searched based on the extracted customer data in order to identify customer contact information. A customer reclamation message may then be sent to the customer, wherein the message can incentivize the customer to return to the web site and request completion of the transaction.

  • Publication number: 20090259932
    Abstract: A stored document of a persistent data store can include digitally encoded content. A version of the stored document can be created that is placed in a non-persistent memory. This version can be referred to as a rendered document. Content from the rendered document can be presented in a user interface. A user selection of a user defined portion of the presented content can be received. Additionally, a user issued command to hide the selected portion of the presented content can be received. The rendered document can be responsively changed to omit the user defined portion of the presented content when outputting the presented content to at least one output device. The changing of the rendered document to omit the user defined portion is unable to affect the stored document in any fashion.
