  • Patent number: 7792671
    Abstract: Outputs of an automatic probabilistic event detection system, such as a fact extraction system, a speech-to-text engine or an automatic character recognition system, are matched with comparable results produced manually or by a different system. This comparison allows statistical modeling of the run-time behavior of the event detection system. This model can subsequently be used to give supplemental or replacement data for an output sequence of the system. In particular, the model can effectively calibrate the system for use with data of a particular statistical nature.

  • Publication number: 20100156407
    Abstract: An arrangement and method recognizes and classifies preferably hidden objects in object and/or human traffic. Objects relevant to security are recognized, located and tracked through the surroundings thereof in moving object and human traffic isolated in real time. Use is made of a combination of a field generator, the field of which is modified by at least one corresponding object within the scanned space, first sensors which repeatedly record the changes in the field and provide corresponding signals, second sensors which record defined surroundings of the object in real-time with relation to the first sensors and provide corresponding signals and analytical means which correlate and collate the signals from the sensors with each other and which give from the same the shape, spatial position and/or spatial orientation of the object.

  • Patent number: 7712038
    Abstract: A device and a method for finding information elements (1) in one or more objects (7), the information elements (1) being storable in a storage device and the objects (7) being displayable on a display device via a graphical user interface (18). The present invention has the feature that the information elements (1) are arranged in a coordinate system of a graphically displayed object (7) so that each information element (1) has associated therewith at least one coordinate point in the graphically displayed object (7), that, for finding the desired information element (10) using the graphical user interface (18), at least one selection window (6) is present which is variable in size and shape and which allows selection of an arbitrarily-sized subset of coordinate points and associated information elements (1) of the object (7), and that the selected information elements (9, 10) are displayable on the graphical user interface (18) of the display device.

  • Publication number: 20090174400
    Abstract: The invention relates to an arrangement for the non-contact defined movement of at least one magnetic body, free to move in at least one dimension. A simple arrangement of this type, taking up a reduced volume, of universal application, for both positioning and orientation and also for energy generation and transmission, can be achieved, by means of arranging the body with a magnetic moment in the primary magnetic field of at least one permanent magnet which moves in a defined manner, said body having a secondary magnetic field extending from the body, aligned with the primary magnetic field. At least one magnetic field sensor is provided to record the secondary magnetic field in any position of the body.

  • Publication number: 20090012970
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for processing a plurality of data items includes defining a set of one or more categories having a corresponding set of conditions that associate the data items with the categories. A sub-categorization request, requesting to divide a category from among the categories into lower-level categories, is accepted from a user. The data items associated with the category are processed responsively to the sub-categorization request, so as to automatically suggest the lower-level categories. The automatically-suggested lower-level categories are presented to the user, and direction with respect to the automatically-suggested lower-level categories is accepted from the user. A hierarchical structure representing the categories is constructed responsively to the direction, by dividing the category into the lower-level categories. Output based on the hierarchical structure is presented to the user.
