  • Patent number: 11068459
    Abstract: A computer implemented and computer controlled method of arranging, in memory, data subsets retrieved from a single or from different data sources, and structured in accordance with a logical data model, for the processing of these data subsets by an action-based logical data model. The action-based logical data model comprises actions, data categories, including a subject data category, an object data category, a spatial data category and a temporal data category, action topology combinations, instance information supplemented to an action topology combination, and constructors. A constructor comprises a plurality of properties in accordance with a constructor topology combination. A property operates on action topology combinations matched to data subsets elements of data subsets in accordance with the action-based logical data model, for presenting structured relations between data subset elements of data subsets.

  • Patent number: 10437872
    Abstract: A computer implemented and computer controlled method of arranging data for processing and storage thereof at a data storage engine. To identified data elements, an action is assigned from a plurality of actions as well as an association between data elements of an action according to a respective topology comprised of an ordered plurality of data categories including a subject data category, an object data category, a spatial data category and a temporal data category. By matching the identified data elements with action topology combinations and using the order of the data elements, one data element is matched with one data category. Instance information is supplemented to matched action topology combinations. In a computer readable format, at a data storage engine, identified data elements, instance information and associations between identifiers resulting from identifying, assigning, matching and supplementing are stored.

  • Patent number: 9053145
    Abstract: A computer controlled method for automatically segmenting an ensemble of data. The method starts by acquiring an ensemble of data and data is segmented by identifying a first subset of sequences of Linking Data Elements based on a repository of Linking Data Elements. A second subset of sequences of Information Carrying Data Elements is identified, wherein the sequences are linked by the Linking Data Elements. The subsets are provided in a structured format.

  • Publication number: 20100211594
    Abstract: A method and system for sensor signal data analysis are disclosed. In one aspect, a method includes acquiring sensor signal data from a plurality of sensors. Signal processing is performed on the sensor signal data to extract one or more features of the sensor signal data. The features are signal extracts that are distinguishable among and reproducible along the sensor signal data. With at least one of the features, a plurality of information attributes is associated, and information evaluation is performed on the plurality of information attributes.
