  • Publication number: 20140207495
    Abstract: Provided are systems, machines, non-transitory computer medium having computer program instructions stored thereon, and computer-implemented methods for providing a premium or an indemnity for a supplemental crop insurance policy. The methods including providing for display of a supplemental crop insurance policy information content page including one or more loss parameter fields to be populated by a user with a corresponding set of supplemental crop insurance parameters, receiving a set of supplemental crop insurance parameters submitted by a user via populating the one or more parameter fields of the supplemental crop insurance policy information content page, determining a premium or an indemnity for the supplemental crop insurance policy based at least in part on the set of supplemental crop insurance parameters, and providing for the display of a supplemental crop insurance policy content page including the premium or the indemnity for the supplemental crop insurance policy.

  • Publication number: 20120317053
    Abstract: A machine-implemented method includes: obtaining transaction data relating to one or more financial assets, the transaction data including the identity of the one or more financial assets, corresponding valuation data for the one or more financial assets, and corresponding volume data for the one or more financial assets; receiving, at the data processing apparatus, a request to display information relating to a first financial asset from the one or more financial assets; generating, in response to receiving the request, output data for display at a user terminal, in which the output data includes a user interface that displays at least a portion of the transaction data relating to the first financial asset and market projection information relating to the first financial asset, in which the market projection information is substantially contemporaneous with the portion of transaction data; and transmitting the output data to the user terminal.

  • Patent number: 5694592
    Abstract: This is a procedure for determining text relevancy and can be used to enhance the retrieval of text documents by search queries. This system helps a user intelligently and rapidly locate information found in large textual databases. A first embodiment determines the common meanings between each word in the query and each word in the document. Then an adjustment is made for words in the query that are not in the documents. Further, weights are calculated for both the semantic components in the query and the semantic components in the documents. These weights are multiplied together, and their products are subsequently added to one another to determine a real value number(similarity coefficient) for each document. Finally, the documents are sorted in sequential order according to their real value number from largest to smallest value. Another, embodiment is for routing documents to topics/headings (sometimes referred to as faltering).
