  • Patent number: 10759016
    Abstract: A machine tool includes a cover body for separating at least a machining area from the outside. The cover body has an opening for allowing the machining area to communicate with the outside and includes a door for opening and closing the opening. The cover body does not include a transparent window for allowing the machining area to be visually checked from the outside. The cover body can be formed to be of a sufficient strength throughout and, if an unexpected accident occurs, structures within the machining area can be reliably prevented from being shot out of the machining area.

  • Patent number: 9087123
    Abstract: When there are no evaluation values from a user who has evaluated both contents X and Z, an indirect similarity calculation unit 32 of an arithmetic processing unit 30 of an information processing center 10a indirectly calculates the similarity between the contents X and Z using evaluation values of a content Y whose evaluation value is present from a user who has evaluated both the contents X and Y and whose evaluation value is present from a user who has evaluated both the contents Y and Z. A predicted evaluation value calculation unit 33 calculates a predicted evaluation value from a user who has not evaluated either of the contents X and Z using the similarity between the contents X and Z calculated by the indirect similarity calculation unit 32 and the evaluation values of the contents X and Z. Thus, it is possible to calculate the predicted evaluation values of the contents X and Z which are not directly calculable.
