  • Patent number: 11516981
    Abstract: A novel maize variety designated X85P994 and seed, plants and plant parts thereof are produced by crossing inbred maize varieties. Methods for producing a maize plant by crossing hybrid maize variety X85P994 with another maize plant are disclosed. Methods for producing a maize plant containing in its genetic material one or more traits introgressed into X85P994 through backcrossing or genetic transformation, and to the maize seed, plant and plant part produced thereby are described. Maize variety X85P994, the seed, the plant produced from the seed, and variants, mutants, and minor modifications of maize variety X85P994 are provided.

  • Publication number: 20220300709
    Abstract: Systems, computer-implemented methods, and computer program products to transform a lexicon that describes an information asset are provided. According to an embodiment, a system can comprise a memory that stores computer executable components and a processor that executes the computer executable components stored in the memory. The computer executable components can comprise a term validation component that can determine from a subject matter expert, a validated term that can indicate validation of a candidate term that describes an information asset. The computer executable components can further comprise a lexicon transforming component that, based on the validated term, can transform a lexicon that describes the information asset, by incorporating the validated term into the lexicon.

  • Patent number: 11416562
    Abstract: In an approach to corpus expansion using lexical signatures, one or more computer processors retrieve a donor corpus of text, wherein the donor corpus includes a plurality of documents. One or more computer processors generate a document signature for each of the plurality of documents in the donor corpus. One or more computer processors retrieve a target corpus of text for expansion. One or more computer processors generate a corpus signature for the target corpus. One or more computer processors compare each document signature to the corpus signature. Based on the comparison, one or more computer processors determine a similarity score for each document signature. One or more computer processors rank the plurality of documents by the similarity score. One or more computer processors add one or more top-ranked documents of the plurality of documents to the target corpus.

  • Patent number: 11379669
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to a system, program product, and method for dictionary membership management directed at identifying ambiguity in semantic resources. A dictionary of seed terms is applied to a text corpus and matching items in the corpus are identified. The linguistic properties for each matching item are characterized and a context pattern of each matching item is constructed. Each context pattern is applied to the dictionary and matching content between the seed terms and the context pattern is identified and quantified. Lexicon items from the dictionary that have anomalous behavior reflected in the quantification are identified. One or more seed words identified as having anomalous behavior are selectively removed from the dictionary.

  • Patent number: 8631009
    Abstract: Systems and methods allow a user of a text or graphics editor to quickly create multiple robust internet search queries by selecting and ranking groups or individual key words from a document. A user who is composing or reading a document can identify and link multiple sets of key words into separate search queries by highlighting and assigning either unique search numbers, colors or other readily ascertained indicators of their logical relation. Each individual search query is routed to selected internet search engines, and the results are returned to the user in the same viewed document. The user may select the form in which the results are displayed. For example, results may be listed within the document by way footnotes, endnotes, or separate hover or pull-down windows accessible from the search terms. In addition, the user can browse, sort, rank, edit or eliminate portions of the results.

  • Publication number: 20070032225
    Abstract: Enhancements of and to cell phone operations are based in whole or in part on determining the location of the cell phone. Systems and methods select and determine locations or areas of importance or relevance, and based on that information and other programmed factors affect or alter the operations of the cell phone. While the systems and methods are illustrated by use of cell phone embodiments and applications, they are equally applicable to virtually any portable or mobile communication device, including for example, wireless laptop computers and PDAs.

  • Publication number: 20070032240
    Abstract: A system and method of interactive and live computerized matching in which a first user is provided with a personal data device including a wireless communication system. A secure network is configured to include a server programmed with a personal characteristic database and a database searching algorithm, and a wireless communication system at a specific geographic location that is capable of communicating with the user's personal data device. The first user is allowed to log on through the wireless communication system to the secure network using his or her personal data device, and communicates to and stores in the database personal data defining his or her characteristics and those for his or her ideal match. Either the secure network automatically identifies the first users precise geographic location, or the user himself otherwise indicates and stores in the database of the network an identifying address that indicates his current specific geographic location.
