  • Publication number: 20170039297
    Abstract: A learning graph is generated for documents according to a sequencing approach. The learning graph includes nodes corresponding to the documents and edges. Each edge connects two of the nodes and indicates a sequencing relationship between two of the documents to which the two of the nodes correspond that specifies an order in which the two of the documents are to be reviewed in satisfaction of the learning goal. The learning graph is a directed graph specifying a learning path through the documents to achieve a learning goal in relation to a subject.

  • Publication number: 20070024915
    Abstract: A method for embedding covert information on a printed substrate is provided. The method can include the steps of printing overt indicia on a substrate and generating a pattern of microtext representative of at least a portion of the overt indicia. Such microtext is capable of being printed in at least two distinct fonts, including a first font and a second font. The method can further include steps of varying the pattern of microtext such that at least one character of the pattern of microtext is configured to be printed in the first font and at least one character is configured to be printed in the second font, thereby providing a font variation which corresponds to a covert code, and printing the pattern of microtext which includes the font variation on the substrate.

  • Publication number: 20060255132
    Abstract: There is disclosed a method of identifying a product involving generating a code unique to the product, said code being provided by a multitude of individual identifiers, applying the multitude of the identifiers of the code to the packaging of the product as a pattern to identify the product. The method also involves applying a sub-set of two or more of the multitude of the identifiers of said code to the product, said sub-set of the multitude of the identifiers of the code being applied so they will be presented in the same pattern order as they appear in the pattern order of the multitude of the identifiers of the code applied to the packaging. The product can be identified with a reasonable likelihood of being a genuine product by determining that a presented pattern order of the sub-set of the multitude of the identifiers applied to the product corresponds to a presented pattern order within the multitude of the identifiers applied to the packaging.
