  • Publication number: 20200004738
    Abstract: A method includes obtaining an initial answer entigen group from a knowledge database based on a query entigen group of a query. The method further includes determining that a reliable and definitive answer for the query is not obtainable from the initial answer entigen group. When an incomplete answer entigen is a cause for the inability to obtain the reliable and definitive answer, the method further includes determining a missing element, obtaining data regarding the missing element, updating the incomplete answer entigen with the data to produce an updated answer entigen, and updating the initial answer entigen group with the updated answer entigen to produce an updated answer entigen group. When the updated answer entigen group produces the reliable and definitive answer, the method further includes outputting the reliable and definitive answer.

  • Publication number: 20190362145
    Abstract: A method includes obtaining a set of image segment identigens for each image segment of an image to produce sets of image segment identigens. The sets of image segment identigens are possible interpretations of an image segment. The method further includes generating a set of relationships between image segments. The relationships provide a list of one or more ways in which the image segments are related. The method further includes processing different permutations of the sets of image segment identigens in accordance with the set of relationships to generate an entigen group. The entigen group represents a most likely interpretation of the image.

  • Publication number: 20190325022
    Abstract: A method includes generating a new entigen group regarding trusted new information. The method further includes generating entigen groups from phrases of a document and determining whether an entigen group of the entigen groups has a most likely meaning similar to a most likely meaning of the new entigen group. When the entigen group has a most likely meaning similar to the most likely meaning of the new entigen group, the method further includes updating the entigen group based on the new entigen group. When the entigen groups do not include an entigen group having a most likely meaning similar to the most likely meaning of the new entigen group, the method further includes updating the entigen groups to include the new entigen group.

  • Publication number: 20190325027
    Abstract: A method includes obtaining a string of words and determining whether two or more words of the string of words are in a word group. When the two or more words are in the word group, the method further includes retrieving a set of word group identigens for the word group and retrieving sets of word identigens for remaining words of the string of words. The method further includes determining whether a word group identigen of the set of word group identigens and word identigens of the sets of word identigens creates an entigen group that is a valid interpretation of the string of words. When the entigen group is the valid interpretation of the string of words, the method further includes outputting the entigen group.

  • Patent number: 10432658
    Abstract: Computer-implemented systems, methods, and computer-readable media are provided for causing an action to be performed in response to a network communication, such as a malicious network communication. In accordance with some embodiments, a first network communication sent from a client device is received, and a protocol used in the first network communication is determined. Once the protocol is determined, the protocol may be implemented to enable a second network communication with the client device. An action to be performed based at least in part on the protocol may be identified, and an instruction may be sent to the client device in the second network communication.

  • Publication number: 20190294666
    Abstract: A method includes generating a plurality of entigen groups from a set of phrases of a statement and identifying two plausible entigen groups based on a true meaning interpretation of the statement. The method further includes identifying a related entigen group based on a phrase of the statement and interpreting each of the two plausible entigen groups in light of the related entigen group to determine whether one of the two plausible entigen groups is a more likely interpretation of the statement than the other one of the two plausible entigen groups. When the one of the two plausible entigen groups is the more likely interpretation of the statement, the method further includes updating the one of the two plausible entigen groups using the related entigen group to produce an updated entigen group and adding the statement as the updated entigen group to a knowledge database.

  • Publication number: 20190230212
    Abstract: A method for selectively facilitating access to functionality of a mobile device by a user in a vehicle is provided, which involves causing at least one processor to receive a request for access to the functionality, causing the processor to initially cause access to the functionality to be denied, causing the processor to receive representations of one or more actions taken by the user, causing the processor to determine whether the one or more actions correspond to one or more passenger-related actions that if taken by the user would indicate that the user is not operating the vehicle by determining whether the representations meet at least one passenger-related action criterion, and causing the processor to, in response to determining that the one or more actions meet the criterion, cause the user to be provided access to the functionality of the mobile device. Apparatuses, systems, and computer-readable media are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20190220756
    Abstract: A method includes selecting an entigen group from a knowledge database. The entigen group is a most likely meaning of a phrase of a string of words. An entigen of the entigen group corresponds to a selected identigen from a set of identigens regarding a word of the string of words. The set of identigens represent different meanings of the word. The method further includes identifying other entigen groups of alternate phrases having the most likely meaning from the knowledge database. The alternate phrases are different permutations of the string of words. The method further includes determining a dominant digital representation of a human reaction of the other entigen groups and generating a digital representation of a human reaction for the entigen group based on the dominant digital representation of a human reaction.

  • Patent number: 9729362
    Abstract: Systems and methods for autonomous signal modulation format identification are disclosed. In an example embodiment of the disclosed technology, a method includes applying higher-order statistics to an input signal to identify the input signal's modulation format. The method may include applying higher-order statistics to the input signal to calculate higher-order cumulant values for the input signal as higher-order cumulants are indicative of a particular modulation format signature. The method may further include employing a decision tree to determine the modulation format of the input signal.

  • Publication number: 20150360238
    Abstract: The invention provides method to recover, by means of froth flotation, a desired metal value from a feedstock containing it. In a comminution step, the feedstock is comminuted using comminuting media of an iron and chrome steel alloy comprising from 12% to 30% chrome. In a conditioning step, the feedstock material is contacted with thiourea and/or oxalic acid as primary flotation reagents. The conditioning step comprises the comminution step, in which a quantity of the primary flotation reagent/s being added and preconditioned comminuted feedstock material being obtained. The conditioning step also comprises an optional conditioning finishing step, in which a mixture of the preconditioned comminuted feedstock material and a liquid is subjected to stirring and with conditioned comminuted feedstock material being obtained from the finishing step. In a recovery step, at least some of the desired metal value is recovered by froth flotation from the preconditioned or conditioned feedstock.
