  • Patent number: 10298676
    Abstract: A method and associated systems for enabling digital asset reuse. Users are each associated with a collection of digital assets and each user and each asset is assigned an eminence value. When a first user initially accesses an asset, the asset is copied to the first user's collection, thus indicating the first user's favorable view of the asset. When a second user accesses the first user's copy, the asset is copied to the second user's collection, and the eminence of the first user and of the asset are increased. If a third user accesses the second user's copy, the asset is copied to the third user's collection and eminence values of the first and second users and of the asset increase. The second user may locate an asset in the first user's collection through means that include the second user's decision to “follow” the first user.

  • Publication number: 20190028689
    Abstract: A system, computer program product and computer-implemented method for presenting data. The system includes a sensor that obtains a measurement related to a viewing parameter of a viewer in the environment, a presentation surface that provides data for viewing by the viewer, and a processor. The viewing parameter of the viewer indicates the viewer's ability to perceive the data. The processor determines the viewing parameter of the viewer from the obtained measurement and dynamically alters a presentation parameter of the presentation surface based at least in part on the viewing parameter of the viewer.

  • Patent number: 10089147
    Abstract: A scheduling system and method for high-performance computing (HPC) applications includes a network management component stored in physical memory and executed by a processor. The management component is configured to transform HPC resources into a schedulable resource catalog by transforming multi-dimensional HPC resources into a one dimension versus time resource catalog with a dependent graph structure between resources such that HPC resources are enabled to be provisioned into a service environment with predictable provisioning using the resource catalog. A graphical user interface component is coupled to the network management component and configured to provide scheduling visibility to entities and to enable a plurality of different communication modes for scheduling and communication between entities.

  • Patent number: 10025629
    Abstract: A system and method for scheduling resources includes a memory storage device having a resource data structure stored therein which is configured to store a collection of available resources, time slots for employing the resources, dependencies between the available resources and social map information. A processing system is configured to set up a communication channel between users, between a resource owner and a user or between resource owners to schedule users in the time slots for the available resources. The processing system employs social mapping information of the users or owners to assist in filtering the users and owners and initiating negotiations for the available resources.

  • Patent number: 9960974
    Abstract: Analytics and visualization for logical dependency mapping of computer servers may be provided. Data collected from computer servers is received and analyzed to discover logical dependencies among the computer servers, for example, to discover communications between one or more of operating systems, middleware and applications associated with the computer servers. The computer servers may be grouped into one or more dependency groups based at least on a user-defined grouping criterion. The one or more dependency groups and their logical dependencies may be output.

  • Patent number: 9628551
    Abstract: A method and associated systems for reusing digital assets and automatically updating user and asset eminence values associated with each asset reuse. Users each control a collection of digital assets and each user and each asset is assigned an eminence value that represents a relative importance of a user or asset. When a first user accesses an asset, that asset is copied to the first user's collection. When a second user accesses the first user's copy, the asset is copied to the second user's collection, and the eminence of the first user and of the asset are increased. When a third user accesses the second user's copy, the asset is copied to the third user's collection and first-user's, second-user's, and asset's eminence values increase. The second user may automatically locate an asset in the first user's collection by “following” the first user.

  • Publication number: 20130325536
    Abstract: In a method for selecting a worker to whom to suggest a task, a set of workers is selected initially, each having LCS and RSC values derived from prior performances of the task. A game score is acquired for each worker, wherein each game score is a measurement of the level of a cognitive aptitude which is needed to perform the task. A given worker of the initial set is placed into a task performance candidate set, only if the game score of the given worker is no less than the LCS of the given worker. The method further comprises selectively processing data provided collectively by the LCS and the RSC of each worker in the candidate set, in order to select one of the workers in the candidate set to whom to recommend the specified task.
