  • Patent number: 11361572
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes a processing unit, an extraction unit, a memory unit, a determination unit, and an assignment unit. The processing unit executes a character recognition process. The extraction unit extracts at least one area located within a predetermined range from a first area that is included in a designated image and that is designated to undergo the character recognition process. The at least one area is a second area. The memory unit stores an attribute on a per character string basis. The determination unit determines, on a basis of the attribute stored by the memory unit, an attribute corresponding to a character string recognized as one or more characters from the first area by the processing unit and a character string recognized as one or more characters from the second area by the processing unit. The assignment unit assigns the determined attribute to the designated image.

  • Patent number: 10489429
    Abstract: The invention aims to provide a relationship evaluation system capable of effectively evaluating a relationship of a node to a reference node in a relationship graph in which plural nodes are connected by links. A reference point node is selected based on selection information regarding the reference point node input from the selection information input unit. Based on the reference point node, a relationship graph becoming an evaluation target is extracted from the relationship graph database to create a virtual communication network based on the graph. In the virtual communication network, simulation is executed by sequentially propagating a virtual communication packet to adjacent nodes from a reference point node selected by the reference point node selection unit as propagation origin. The relationship of the node to the reference node is evaluated based on the content of the communication packet received at the node as a result of executing the simulation.
