    Abstract: Architecture that facilitates the discovery of interesting and relevant content by a user in a serendipitous way on a microblogging site. For example, relevant content can be defined as connected to the user, the user's work, and user interests, while interesting content can be defined as content that does not directly affect the user, yet the user chooses to obtain (e.g., for viewing, interacting, etc.). The content can be presented as a tile cluster, where each tile is a specific content type (e.g., image, link, post, user recommendations, tags, etc.). Additionally, the content can be obtained and presented relative to a specific temporal setting such as the latest content. The different content types are visually distinguished such that one type of content looks and behaves differently from another content type. The user can also drill into content details from the top content.

    Abstract: Systems and methods for clustering content according to similarity are provided that identify and group similar content using a set of tags associated with the content. A topic model of a group of content is built, producing a probability distribution of topic membership for the content. Individual items of content are then clustered using a clustering algorithm, and a distance matrix from the probability distribution is built. Based on the distance matrix, individual items of content are labeled as “must-link” or “cannot-link” pairs with the group of content. The topic model is then embedded into successively smaller dimensions using a kernel method, until the clustering is stable with respect to both the behavioral and content domains.

    Abstract: A system and method is provided for the management of a patient's medical records by a central data repository under the direction of the patient and enabled by an entity managing records on behalf of the patient. Medical records from a plurality of the patient's healthcare providers, including past and present healthcare providers, are maintained in this central repository in a way that provides a centralized, comprehensive, and accessible medical history of the patient, as well as a comprehensive organizational structure across all records. An embodiment has the patient directed central repository as the hub in a hub-and-spoke arrangement, where each spoke goes to one of the patient's healthcare providers, both past and present. The patient's medical records are collected from all the patient's healthcare providers, then classified, stored, and organized for use by the patient, healthcare providers, and any other authorized individuals.

    Abstract: A reproducing apparatus includes a storage section, a judgment section, an analysis section, a classification section, an input section, and a reproduction section. The storage section stores a plurality of pieces of audio data. The judgment section judges, based on a length of each piece of audio data stored in the storage section, an analysis time interval for each piece of audio data. The analysis section analyzes the audio data in the analysis time interval judged by the judgment section. The classification section classifies the respective pieces of audio data into a plurality of predetermined classification items based on results of the analysis. The input section causes a user to select the classification item of the audio data to be reproduced. The reproduction section reproduces the audio data belonging to the classification item selected by the input section from a reproduction start point within the analysis time interval.

    Abstract: Automatically extracting information that matches a predetermined criterion from one or more web pages at one or more web sites and automatically producing one or more extracted data-field names from the information extracted from the one or more web pages at the one or more web sites. The extracted information includes at least one extracted data-field value associated with one of the one or more extracted data-field names. If one of the extracted data-field names matches an existing data-field name in a previously constructed data base including one or more data fields each associated with a data-field name and a data-field value, the method updates an extracted data-field value associated with the data-field name in the data base. If one of the extracted data field names does not match any of the existing data-field names in the data base, the method adds the extracted data-field name to the data base.

    Abstract: Accessing data through a social network. User input may be received at a node in a social network requesting access to data or requesting a search for data. The node includes data for an entity. In some embodiments, the entity controls the data at the node exclusive of centralized control of the social network. The node further comprises one or more references defining relationships to other nodes. The relationships are defined on an informational basis such that information in data at one node is related through a relationship to information in data at another node. Each of the other nodes includes other data about other entities. Embodiments may further include receiving data at the node from one or more of the other nodes based on one or more of the relationships. At the node, the data from the other nodes may be published.

    Abstract: A method for classifying and recommending wine includes establishing a network connection between a server and a computer, recording a wine inventory within a database management system (DBMS) of the sever, and populating the inventory with information describing the different wines. A weighted value is assigned to the information for each wine to determine a numeric bin value, and an objective personal taste profile (PTP) of the user is calculated as a number that objectively rates the user's taste preferences. The method matches a wine with the user based on the bin value and PTP, and displays a graphic of the wine on a web browser. A server-based system includes a data base management system (DBMS) and a server having an algorithm for classifying and recommending wine based on the user's PTP, and displaying a graphic of the wine on a web browser.
