  • Patent number: 11176332
    Abstract: Time dependent media (TDM) content is received, and text features and non-text features are extracted from the TDM content. The TDM content is split into two or more documents. A document, which includes non-text features from the extracted non-text features, is selected. Non-text features in the document are compared to context patterns. When a context pattern matches a non-text feature in the document, a context element linked to the context pattern is linked to the non-text feature as well. The TDM content is modified based on the context element.

  • Patent number: 11151321
    Abstract: A method, a structure, and a computer system for resolving an anaphora. The exemplary embodiments may include extracting individual context data from an individual expression and determining whether the individual expression includes an anaphora representation based on the individual context data. The exemplary embodiments may further include, based on determining that the individual expression includes the anaphora representation, extracting anaphora context data and identifying an object of one or more objects to which the anaphora representation refers based on comparing the individual context data and the anaphora context data to data detailing the one or more objects.

  • Publication number: 20210224344
    Abstract: Provided are techniques for performing a search based on position information. A search request that provides location information for a region of a screen image is received. A selection of a type indicator is received, where the type indicator indicates one of a text item and an image. In response to the type indicator indicating the text item, one or more of the text item and a date and time are received. A search is performed using the location information and the one or more of the text item and the date and time to identify one or more screen image identifiers of one or more corresponding screen images of a plurality of screen images. The one or more screen image identifiers are used to retrieve the one or more corresponding screen images. The one or more corresponding screen images are displayed as search results.

  • Patent number: 10963490
    Abstract: A system, computer program product, and method are provided to selectively index one or more subsets of documents or files. As data is extracted from a document or file, extracted text is organized into data portions and subject to evaluations. Meta characteristic data is leveraged to assess the extracted text. One or more subsets of the organized data portions are selectively identified and subject to enrichment processing, which creates and returns enriched and indexed subsets of the documents or files.
