  • Patent number: 7555496
    Abstract: A method for spatializing text content for enhanced visual browsing and analysis. The invention is applied to large text document corpora such as digital libraries, regulations and procedures, archived reports, and the like. The text content from these sources may be transformed to a spatial representation that preserves informational characteristics from the documents. The three-dimensional representation may then be visually browsed and analyzed in ways that avoid language processing and that reduce the analysts' effort.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 7266537
    Abstract: A predictive modeling system and methodology makes predictions using unstructured content as an input, either alone or in conjunction with structured content. Content transformation rules are selected for application to the unstructured content, such as emails, call center notes, and other forms of human communication, by identifying the rules that are likely to improve the performance of a predictive modeling system.

  • Patent number: 7249312
    Abstract: The present invention provides for a system and method of assigning attribute scores, including those for abstract and diverse concepts such as sentiment (e.g., happiness, anger, sadness) to documents containing unstructured content (natural language content). Such content may include, but is not limited to, Web pages, e-mails, word processing documents, computer logs, chat logs, audio files, graphical images, text files, books, magazines, articles, etc. The attributes that are scored are specialized views of the unstructured content. Accordingly, attribute scoring denotes the processes of assigning one or more new measures to a document containing unstructured content. The attribute score or measure indicates the degree of the attributes found within the document.

  • Patent number: 6772170
    Abstract: A sequence of word filters are used to eliminate terms in the database which do not discriminate document content, resulting in a filtered word set and a topic word set whose members are highly predictive of content. These two word sets are then formed into a two dimensional matrix with matrix entries calculated as the conditional probability that a document will contain a word in a row given that it contains the word in a column. The matrix representation allows the resultant vectors to be utilized to interpret document contents.

  • Publication number: 20040049505
    Abstract: The present invention provides for a system and method that allows OLAP analysis of unstructured content. This is accomplished by transforming isolated, unstructured content into quantifiable structured data, thereby creating a common measure for performing OLAP analysis. This allows the seamless integration of unstructured content with structured data sources. It also allows for the ability to query what was before unqueriable information that enterprises were in possession of.
