  • Patent number: 11386270
    Abstract: A facility for identifying multi-word expressions in a natural language sentence is described. The facility provides the sentence to each of multiple natural language processing modules including a first module, a second module, and a third module. Each natural language processing module uses a different approach to identify a multi-word expression and a type of the multi-word expression. Upon determining that the multiple identifiers of the multi-word expression differ, the facility determines the multi-word expression using a resolution process, which can involve a logical rule set or a machine learning model.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 11216495
    Abstract: Generating a compliance framework. The compliance framework facilitates an organization's compliance with multiple authority documents by providing efficient methodologies and refinements to existing technologies, such as providing hierarchical fidelity to the original authority document; separating auditable citations from their context (e.g., prepositions and or informational citations); asset focused citations; SNED and Live values, among others.

  • Publication number: 20210365638
    Abstract: A facility for representing a mandate occurring in an authority document with a control is described. For each of one or more controls in a set of existing controls, the facility determines a similarity score measuring the similarity of the mandate and the control; where the similarity score exceeds a similarity threshold, the facility links the mandate to the control. Where the mandate is not linked to any control in the set of controls, the facility adds a control to the set of controls that is based on the mandate, and links the mandate to the added control.

  • Patent number: 10606945
    Abstract: A dictionary data structure is described. The data structure is made up of first, second, and third tables. The first table is comprised of entries each representing a natural language term, each entry of the first table containing a term ID identifying its term. The second table is comprised of entries each representing a definition, each entry of the second containing a definition ID identifying its definition. The third table is comprised of entries each representing correspondence between a terminate definition defining the term, each entry of the third table containing term ID identifying the defined term and a definition ID identifying the defining definition. The contents of the data structure are usable to identify any definitions corresponding to a term.
