  • Publication number: 20200250159
    Abstract: Cross-matching of match indexes assigned to respective data sources can be performed. Each match index can store at least a portion of data from a subset of data records in the data source to which the match index is assigned. Such data can be stored in the match index as match index records. Responsive to identifying matches between match records of different match indexes, the data records in the data sources to which the match records correspond can be updated to add links between the respective data records.

  • Publication number: 20200143076
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a method for a secure storage, matching and linking of data records. The method comprises: receiving a current data record having one or more attributes, each attribute having an attribute value. For each attribute of at least part of the attributes a predefined set of variations of the attribute value of the attribute may be generated. The received attribute values may be encrypted resulting in an encrypted record and the generated sets of variations may be encrypted. The encrypted record may be stores in a storage system in association with the respective encrypted sets of variations.

The method comprises providing a centralized master repository for storing data records in a predefined data structure having a set of attributes. At least one clustering metric is provided. Clusters of records may be determined using a clustering function that is based on the at least one clustering metric. For each particular cluster, a set of configuration data for the record linkage algorithm may be defined based on a value of the clustering metric within that particular cluster. The individual data records may be assigned to one or more clusters of the clusters using the clustering metric values and the record linkage algorithm may be applied to a set of two or more individual data records assigned to at least one common cluster using the set of configuration data for the common cluster.

  • Patent number: 10540383
    Abstract: An ontology is automatically generated for a set of data from multiple data sources. A semantic network of known concepts serves as an ontology template for a target domain of knowledge with known concepts defined as base entity types. Logical groupings of data and associated technical metadata are read from the data sources. Data discovery techniques are applied to detect semantic and/or syntactic classification of data attributes in the logical groupings of data. For each of the logical groupings of data, an entity type with properties for the data attributes are generated and the generated entity type is added to the semantic network with classifications of the properties as derived from the applied data discovery techniques. Semantic meanings of the generated entity types are generated and associated with other entity types within the semantic network and the semantic network is output as a resultant ontology for the set of data.

  • Patent number: 10224837
    Abstract: A method for starting a drive motor. The drive motor includes a motor stator with stator coils and a motor rotor, and a control electronics system and a power electronics system which supply power to the stator coils with a predefined coil voltage and a predefined constant start-up rotation frequency to generate a rotating field to drive the motor rotor. The method includes supplying power to at least one stator coil with a coil voltage corresponding to a start value, increasing the coil voltage in steps, monitoring an electric current flowing through the power electronics system, and, when a specific minimum voltage drop is detected, terminating the increasing of the coil voltage in steps, and performing a safety increase of the coil voltage by increasing a start-up voltage value by a predefined safety value to a first operating voltage value where the motor rotor is drivable in an unregulated mode.

  • Patent number: 7522277
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an imaging optical system for imaging the peripherally extending lateral surfaces (9) of an object (10) on to an imaging plane, comprising a reflecting element (6) and a first angle-reducing element (3, 17) which is arranged downstream of the reflecting element in the beam direction and which reduces the angle between a light beam emanating from the object (10) and the optical axis (12). In order to provide an imaging optical system for imaging the peripherally extending lateral surfaces of objects, which is both simple and inexpensive to produce and also has a large acceptance angle for the incident radiation and which is tolerant in relation to inaccurate positioning of the object, it is proposed in accordance with the invention that arranged upstream of the reflecting element (6) in the beam direction is a second angle-reducing element (13) which reduces the angle between a light beam (1, 1) emanating from the object (10) and the optical axis (12).
