  • 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: 4207559
    Abstract: An alarm system in which local transmitters emit substantially pure acoustic signals for at least a predetermined minimum interval. The receiver includes a microphone and amplifier for transducing the acoustic signals into electrical signals. These electrical signals pass through two bandpass stages, the second being a phase locked loop circuit. An RC timing network is connected to the second bandpass circuit. After about 7500 cycles of the electrical signal have been received an "alarm received" signal occurs. The "alarm received" signal is applied to the triggering input of a free-running pulse generator which supplies pulse trains to a counter and is itself halted when the counter reaches a first intermediate state. A second "alarm received" signal is required to restart the free-running pulse generator and thus advance the counter beyond said first intermediate state.
