  • Publication number: 20170351832
    Abstract: Individual health vulnerability is assessed by obtaining health risk prevalence level data containing health risk prevalence levels for one or more health risks over a given geographical area. The health risk prevalence level data to generate for each health risk a prevalence level forecast as a function of time and location. A health risk prevalence level map is generated for the given geographical area illustrating current and future health risk prevalence levels for each health risk at a plurality of locations within the given geographical area. Personal health status data are obtained for a given individual along with a proposed travel itinerary f covering at least a portion of the geographical area over a given time duration. The personal health status data, travel itinerary and map generate a personal health risk vulnerability model containing a quantification of vulnerability to the one or more health risks resulting from the travel itinerary.

  • Patent number: 8655812
    Abstract: A method for non-intrusive event-driven prediction of a metric in a data processing environment is provided in the illustrative embodiments. At least one set of events is observed in the data processing environment, the set of events being generated by several processes executing in the data processing environment. A subset of the set of events are tracked for an observation period, the tracking resulting in bookkeeping information about the subset of events. A pattern of events is detected in the bookkeeping information. The pattern is formed as a tuple representing a process in the several processes, the metric corresponding to the process. A prediction model is selected for the tuple. The prediction model is supplied with the tuple and executed to generate a predicted value of the metric.

  • Patent number: 8606622
    Abstract: An architecture, system, and method are provided for a commitment loop solution for on demand business activity management. A Business Performance Management (BPM) loop includes nodes each relating to different tasks for processing performance management trigger data generated by a business entity in real time. The beginning or sensing element of the loop is triggered by a token (representing a business event from a business process). The ending or executing element provides a business action to be implemented by the business entity. The token is passed from node to node sequentially in a particular order around the loop. Processing of the data represented by the token is governed by policies, which can be changed dynamically and follow a life cycle.

  • Patent number: 8326856
    Abstract: A method (and apparatus) for adapting an input parameter, for dynamically invoking target Web services, and for adapting output results, includes receiving an invocation request including an input parameter in a first format. A semantic information representation module MetaWSDL (Meta Web Service Description Language), wherein the MetaWSDL includes a universal XML (eXtended Markup Language) representation which includes semantic information of a Web service method signature, is retrieved from a memory. A MetaWSDL processor is invoked to adapt the input parameter to a second format using the retrieved MetaWSDL. The target Web services are dynamically invoked, using the adapted parameter in the second format, and the output result in the first format is adapted to the second format, using the MetaWSDL.
