  • Patent number: 10140363
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention provide for social network crowd translation. A method for social network crowd translation includes selecting a source document to be translated into a specific target language from a source language and parsing the document to determine a context for the source document. The method also includes querying a social network for different individuals with profile data indicating proficiency with the target language and including keywords mapping to the context of the document. Thereafter, in response to locating an individual in the social network having profile data which indicates proficiency with the target language and including keywords mapping to the context of the document, the located individual is notified of a request to translate the document.

  • Publication number: 20180255016
    Abstract: A method, system and computer program product for improving the quality of the posts in a social network. A topic of a post to a social network environment is identified using natural language processing. The tense of the post directed to the identified topic is detected using natural language processing. The post is transformed to a suggested post of a second tense directed to the same topic to the user using natural language processing. A suggested message to be posted by the user to the social network in a third tense (e.g., past tense) based on the posts directed to the identified topic in the first and second tenses (e.g., future and present tenses) is generated using natural language processing thereby forming a past/present/future pairing of posts. By forming a past/present/future pairing of posts, a more complete and understandable view of the user's personal history may be obtained.

  • Patent number: 9930136
    Abstract: In an approach to form groups based on an emotional state of a user, a computer determines an emotional state of a first user. The computer determines an emotional state of a plurality of users and determines the emotional state of at least one user of the plurality of users corresponding to the emotional state of the first user. The computer provides a recommendation for forming a group, based, at least in part, on the corresponding emotional states of the first user and the at least one user. The computer then determines, based on at least one criteria on the group, a duration for the group.

  • Patent number: 9881269
    Abstract: A method, system, and/or computer program product manages update operations for a hardware resource. A time, date, and location of the future meeting for which a predetermined feature from a hardware resource has been designated as being required for the future meeting is retrieved from a calendar. A determination is made as to whether or not the predetermined feature of the hardware resource is scheduled for updating during the time and date of the future meeting at said location. A level of detriment that will occur to the future meeting if the future meeting proceeds without the updating of the predetermined feature from the hardware resource is determined. A schedule for updating the hardware resource is then adjusted according to the level of detriment that will occur to the future meeting if the future meeting proceeds without the updating of the predetermined feature from the hardware resource.

  • Patent number: 9871758
    Abstract: An approach for facilitating handling of a post to an online social network is provided. In the approach, a first post to an online social network is received. A processor identifies keywords associated with the first post. A processor identifies one or more posts similar to the first post based on at least the identified keywords, wherein the identified one or more posts were previously posted to the online social network. A processor determines one or more posts, of the identified one or more posts, that are within a predetermined threshold of similarity to the first post, based on at least a comparison between the identified one or more posts and the first post. A processor determines at least one recommendation of an action to perform in the online social network based at least on actions associated with the determined posts that are within the predetermined threshold of similarity.

  • Patent number: 9754051
    Abstract: A method, system and computer program product for improving the quality of the posts in a social network. A topic of a post to a social network environment is identified using natural language processing. The tense of the post directed to the identified topic is detected using natural language processing. The post is transformed to a suggested post of a second tense directed to the same topic to the user using natural language processing. A suggested message to be posted by the user to the social network in a third tense (e.g., past tense) based on the posts directed to the identified topic in the first and second tenses (e.g., future and present tenses) is generated using natural language processing thereby forming a past/present/future pairing of posts. By forming a past/present/future pairing of posts, a more complete and understandable view of the user's personal history may be obtained.
