  • Publication number: 20200410057
    Abstract: An approach is provided to use a first translation attribute that is received at a user interface from a user to automatically translate a document. The source document that is in a source natural language is translated to a target document that is in a target natural language by using a machine translator that utilizes the first translation attribute, such as adequacy or fluency. The target document is analyzed with the analysis resulting in a second translation attribute (e.g., either adequacy or fluency, whichever is different from the first translation attribute). The target (translated) document and the second translation attribute are then provided to the user, such as at the user interface.

  • Patent number: 10789255
    Abstract: For presenting data chunks for a working memory event, a processor detects a trigger policy for a working memory event being satisfied by raw data from a sensor. The trigger policy is based on user attention. The processor further categorizes a data chunk for the working memory event from the raw data. The processor detects a query policy being satisfied by a query from subsequent raw data. In response to the query policy being satisfied, the processor identifies the data chunk based on the query. The processor further presents the data chunk.
