  • Patent number: 10013481
    Abstract: A method of matching a first entity to a second entity by evaluating Boolean expressions includes identifying a set of criteria vertices for a second entity vertex by traversing a graph database in a manner constrained to fact vertices identified for the second entity. The graph database relates fact vertices to the criteria vertices by edges corresponding to Boolean expressions for satisfying criteria for matching first entities to second entities. The method additionally includes selecting one of the first entities based on the criteria vertices of the set. The method further includes matching the first entity to the second entity based on the selection.

  • Publication number: 20140188553
    Abstract: A method of matching a panelist to a market research project includes assigning, by one or more computer processors, priorities to quota cells. The method additionally includes accessing, by the one or more computer processors, a set of the prioritized quota cells identified for the panelist. The method also includes selecting, by the one or more computer processors, one of the quota cells based at least in part on the priorities. The method further includes matching, by the one or more computer processors, the panelist to the market research project based on the selected quota cell.
