  • Patent number: 9892193
    Abstract: A method for detecting solutions to a problem using content in online discussion sources. The method includes receiving a request, such request identifying a problem, and searching multiple online discussion sources for content related to the problem. Responsive to finding content related to the problem, the method searches the multiple online discussion sources for a plurality of solutions to the problem. Responsive to finding a plurality of solutions to the problem, the method forms groups containing the solutions from each of the multiple online discussion sources. The method then determines a likeliness to solve the problem for each of the groups and ranks the groups based on the determined likeliness to solve the problem. The method then determines that the rank of at least one group meets a threshold value, wherein the threshold value is based on a confidence in the likeliness to solve the problem.

  • Patent number: 9424611
    Abstract: A method for managing user-generated questions and answers across multiple social media data sources can begin with the receiving of query parameters, including a user-entered question, via the user interface of a social media Q&A manage. Social media data sources can be queried for knowledge related to the user-entered question. When knowledge related to the user-entered question exists, the existing related knowledge can be organized and presented in the user interface according to a determined answer quality. When knowledge related to the user-entered question does not exist or is deemed unsatisfactory by a user, the user-entered question can be automatically submitted to applicable social media data sources by the social media Q&A manager on behalf of the user. A status of the submitted user-entered question can be monitored. When the status of the submitted user-entered question changes, the method can be re-executed at the querying step.

  • Patent number: 9342587
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention relate to an approach for reusing information/knowledge. Specifically, embodiments of the present invention provide an approach for retrieving previously stored data to satisfy queries (e.g., jobs/tickets) for solutions to problems while maintaining privacy/security of the data as well as ensuring the quality of the results. In a typical embodiment, a query for a solution to a problem is received and details are extracted therefrom. Using the details, a search is performed on a set of data stored in at least one computer storage device. Based on the search, a set of results will be generated and classified into a set of categories. In any event, the quality of each of the set of results will be assessed based on the usefulness of the set of results.
