  • Patent number: 11080258
    Abstract: An apparatus acquires a first input-table, based on target table information, and acquires a script for generating a first output-table from the first input-table, and a constraint condition between columns included in the first input-table and the first output-table. The apparatus converts the first input-table into a second input-table such that the second input-table obtained by converting a column structure of the first input-table and a second output-table to be obtained by converting a column structure of the target table comply with the constraint condition, and generates assignment information indicating a correspondence relationship between columns to be included in the second output-table and the target table. The apparatus generates the second output-table from the script and the second input-table, and converts the second output-table into the target table, based on the assignment information.

  • Publication number: 20200117662
    Abstract: A group of nodes corresponding to respective pieces of data included in a second data-set are identified from nodes in a first data-set described based on ontologies each defining a link referencing a node in the first data-set. A determination is made, on a path following links in the first data-set from each of the group of nodes, whether there is an association between a first ontology of a first link referencing a source node and a second ontology of a second link referencing a destination node. A common node, at which a first path from a first node and a second path from a second node intersect, is searched for by tracing links between the source node and the destination node based on a result of the determination, and a search result representing the common node, the first node, and the second node is output.
