  • Patent number: 9639751
    Abstract: A data verification system is configured to verify machine-recognized data elements acquired during a machine-implemented data acquisition process. The system includes a data verification workstation, an image server, and a data entry server. The data verification workstation is configured to obtain document images from the image server, present portions of document images to an operator, wherein the document images include text, and receive input from the operator based on the text. The input includes data elements. The data verification workstation is also configured to acquire machine-recognized data elements from the data entry server. The machine-recognized data elements were acquired from the document image during a machine-implemented data acquisition process based on the text.

  • Patent number: 8064703
    Abstract: A method of extracting data from a document image includes selecting a document classification for the document image that includes text. The classification is selected from a plurality of predetermined document classifications based on recognized text. The method also includes selecting rules from a database of rules based on the document classification. The rules define data elements to be populated based on recognized document text. The method also includes selecting target data elements from a database of data elements based on the selected document classification and the selected rules. The method also includes recognizing selected portions of the document image. The selected portions are determined by the selected rules. Recognizing selected portions of the document image generates one or more character strings based on recognized text. The method further includes comparing a specific character string to a target data element, thereby producing a match measure based on the comparison.

  • Publication number: 20060150200
    Abstract: A web services namespace pertains to an infrastructure for enabling creation of a wide variety of applications. The infrastructure provides a foundation for building message-based applications of various scale and complexity. The infrastructure or framework provides APIs for basic messaging, secure messaging, reliable messaging and transacted messaging. In some embodiments, the associated APIs are factored into a hierarchy of namespaces in a manner that balances utility, usability, extensibility and versionability.

  • Publication number: 20060097564
    Abstract: An ice resurfacing machine for small and medium-size indoor and outdoor ice skating rinks comprises a light towing vehicle, a resurfacing attachment, and a lifting and leveling assembly connecting them. To eliminate ruts in the ice, the machine removes only a thin layer of ice by scraping, fills the ruts with “snow” created by the scraping, skating, and precipitation, and adds water to fill the rut. The cold from the base ice and/or the atmosphere freezes the water and thus eliminates the rut. The machine may also be used to remove heavy snow or reduce the thickness of the ice.

  • Publication number: 20060048220
    Abstract: The present invention extends to methods, systems, and computer program products for securely inspecting electronic messages. A computer system receives a control message that is passed through one or more receiving path components, positioned in a message receiving path, to a security component. The security component authenticates the received control message and passes the received control message to an inspection control component. The inspection control component activates message inspection in accordance with instructions contained in the received control message. When message inspection is activated, the computer system passes accessed messages to corresponding inspection components positioned in message paths (either receiving or sending) of the accessed message. The inspection component generates an inspection report (e.g., including a portion of contents of the accessed message) in accordance with instructions contained in a previously authenticated control message.

  • Publication number: 20060047846
    Abstract: The present invention extends to methods, systems, and computer program products for integrating messaging diagnostics into a messaging pipeline. A messaging pipeline receives a control message and passes the control message through one or more pipeline components (potentially a security component) positioned in the messaging pipeline. The control message is passed to a diagnostic control component positioned in the messaging pipeline subsequent to passing the received control message through one or more pipeline components. The diagnostic control component activates message diagnostics at diagnostic components positioned within one or more messaging pipelines in accordance with instructions contained in the control message. When message diagnostics are activated, messaging pipelines pass accessed messages to diagnostic components positioned in the messaging pipeline.

  • Publication number: 20050198390
    Abstract: Mechanisms in which upon receiving a message, the message is passed through one or more receiving path components that are positioned in the receiving path of the message prior to being passed to a dispatching component. One or more of the receiving path components may modify the message to include information that may be helpful to the dispatching component in order to perform the dispatch. The dispatching component receives modified message, and uses information from the modified message (including potentially the modification itself) to perform the dispatch. Since the message is modified to include additional information helpful to the dispatching component, the dispatching component may be more flexible in identifying the processing that should occur with the message. Accordingly, specialized and flexible processing may be enabled that is ideally suited for the message.

  • Publication number: 20050047880
    Abstract: A shaving collector for collecting ferrous metal shavings produced by the operation of a drill bit in drilling a hole in a ferrous metal panel comprises a hollow cup-shaped body having an open end, with the open end including a ring magnet around the periphery thereof. The open end can be magnetically attached over a hole drilling location in the rear side a ferrous metal panel, opposite a front side of the panel where a drill is to be applied to the panel. Shavings that fall through the hole produced by the drilling operation are collected in the open interior of the collector, the collector being removable from the ferrous metal material after the drilling operation in order to discard the shavings at a remote location. The shaving collector preferably is formed of a moldable plastic and can either have a permanently closed outer end or the end can be covered by a removable cap. Both ends can be covered by removable caps, so that the collector can be used as a container for a drill bit or other tool.
