    Abstract: Methods and systems for interacting with multiple three-dimensional (3D) object data models are provided. An example method may involve receiving an annotated template of a first three-dimensional (3D) object data model. The annotated template may be associated with a given category of objects and may include one or more annotations to one or more aspects of an object described by the first 3D object data model. The method may also include determining matching correspondences between the first 3D object data model and a second 3D object data model that is a given object in the given category. For the one or more matching correspondences, an annotation that is associated with a correspondence point of the first 3D object data model may be applied as a call-out to a matching correspondence point of the second 3D object data model.

  • Publication number: 20130144908
    Abstract: Methods and systems for identifying stability exceptions in a data log are disclosed. In one method, at least one key that is present in the data log is determined. The data log is comprised of at least one data set, at least one of which includes a plurality of iterations indicating states of the corresponding data set at different points in time. For each data set and for each key, a map is generated. The map indicates, for each iteration of the corresponding data set, whether the corresponding key is present in the corresponding iteration. Moreover, at least one expression pattern rule that models data item stability characteristics over data set iterations is compared to each of the maps to determine whether the corresponding map satisfies the one or more expression pattern rules. Further, at least one unstable data item is identified in the data log based on the comparison.

  • Publication number: 20120011152
    Abstract: A program generation system is described that generates a program based on a plurality of input-output examples. The input-output examples include input items and corresponding output items. The program generation system can include three component modules. A parsing module processes the input items and output items to provide a plurality of input parts and output parts, respectively. A transformation module determines, for each output part, whether the output part can be produced from a corresponding input part using one or more converter modules selected from a collection of candidate converter modules. A formatting module generates formatting instructions that transform selected output parts into a form specified by the output items. These three modules provide a generated program that embodies logic learned from the input-output examples; the generated program can be subsequently used to transform new input items into new respective output items.

    Abstract: Methods, apparatus and systems, including computer program products for creating an index for search in a search system by collecting and analyzing documents to be searched. A first storage section stores system configuration information of the search system. A second storage section stores attribute information of a collected document and the system configuration information at the time of document collection for each document. A comparison section compares the attribute information of the documents to be collected and the system configuration information stored in the first storage section with the attribute information and the system configuration information stored in the second storage section, respectively, if forced re-collection of the documents is performed. A document collection section collects the documents according to a predetermined schedule under normal conditions and re-collects only documents for which a mismatch is detected by the comparison section in the case of forced re-collection.

  • Publication number: 20100325157
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system in which Aan NFA conversion meansunit 21, receives the number of simultaneous/parallel processing characters from an input device 1 and, using a one-character transition finite automaton description matrix stored in an NFA description matrix storage unit 31 and a description matrix which is stored in an NFA conversion result matrix storage unit 32 as an intermediate conversion result, converts the finite automaton to a finite automaton whose transition condition is described in the number of characters subjected to simultaneous/parallel processing. The NFA conversion means 21 sequentially stores the intermediate result in the NFA conversion result matrix storage unit 32. When the conversion is completed, a result output meansunit 22 reads the resulting NFA description matrix from the NFA conversion result matrix storage unit 32 and outputs it to an output device 4.

    Abstract: Disclosed herein is an improved architecture for regular expression pattern matching. Improvements to pattern matching deterministic finite automatons (DFAs) that are described by the inventors include a pipelining strategy that pushes state-dependent feedback to a final pipeline stage to thereby enhance parallelism and throughput, augmented state transitions that track whether a transition is indicative of a pattern match occurring thereby reducing the number of necessary states for the DFA, augmented state transition that track whether a transition is indicative of a restart to the matching process, compression of the DFA's transition table, alphabet encoding for input symbols to equivalence class identifiers, the use of an indirection table to allow for optimized transition table memory, and enhanced scalability to facilitate the ability of the improved DFA to process multiple input symbols per cycle.

    Abstract: A computer-based system enables the creation of a time series based sequence of observations of a selected object. Each observation consists of a predefined, fixed set of standardized object views from which metadata about the visual data can be automatically determined and associated with the views. A set of standardized views and associated metadata, captured in an observation at a point in time, enables comparison of changes to a specific object over time on a view-by-view basis, or changes to a specific object over time in comparison to second reference object of the same type as the first object on a view-by-view basis. Metadata about the object in the domain are organized and made available in the domain specific processing system to support visual search, retrieval, analysis, and decision making by users within the domain.
