  • Patent number: 10241992
    Abstract: A bipartite application implements a table auto-completion (TAC) algorithm on the client side and the server side. A client module runs a local model of the TAC algorithm on a user device and a server module runs a global model of the TAC algorithm on a server machine. The local model is continuously adapted through on-the-fly training, with as few as a negative example, to perform TAC on the client side, one document at a time. Knowledge thus learned by the local model is used to improve the global model on the server side. The global model can be utilized to automatically and intelligently extract table information from a large number of documents with significantly improved accuracy, requiring minimal human intervention even on complex tables.

  • Patent number: 10020900
    Abstract: An improved system architecture for making spectrum information available to one or more devices and for providing and using the spectrum information at a device. The improved architecture employs an arrangement of software processes that interact to provide a flexible and highly-configurable technique for controlling access to spectrum information. To that end, a spectrum information server executes a server process having a library of spectrum-related functions including, for example, functions for retrieving spectrum data from spectrum data sources and/or for processing retrieved spectrum data. The spectrum information server also executes one or more device host processes configured to communicate with at least one compatible device process executing on a spectrum-aware (SA) device. In an illustrative embodiment, a device process on the SA device may request spectrum information from a device host process on the spectrum information server.

  • Patent number: 8918709
    Abstract: An object template system is described herein that allows an administrator of an IT management application to define templates that provide a streamlined mechanism for pre-populating IT objects with common values based on business logic and processes. The object template system addresses manipulation of objects both as part of a user interactive session as well as in programmatic workflows, while also allowing for referencing of existing objects to assume integrity of data. A metadata-driven schema allows for portable definitions of simple and complex extensible objects. The system validates these definitions against the extensible types that define the objects to ensure structural integrity. Users can then apply these definitions at runtime to both create and/or update simple and complex management objects. Thus, the object template system allows an administrator to define controlled processes for creating and modifying management objects within a flexible IT management application.

    Abstract: A system and method for creating an electronic form used to chronicle a healthcare interaction between a patient and healthcare provider is provided. A repository stores form control data objects, each of the form control data objects enabling user data entry of information associated with a respective aspect of the healthcare interaction. A form processor acquires form control data objects associated with a particular healthcare interaction from the repository and generates form creation data including the acquired form control data objects and a formatting grid, the formatting grid receives at least one of the acquired form control data objects. A user interface generator generates a form creation user interface using the form creation data received from the form processor that enables a user to selectively position the at least one of the acquired form control data objects within the formatting grid in a desired position.

    Abstract: A system and method for creating integrated web form and database applications. One or more embodiments of the invention enable a system and method for creating integrated web form and database applications. The system enables click-and-drag form creation and automatically codes the markup, validation script and database schema. The system does not require programming to create forms or a database schema to associate form data with. In addition, the system does not require programming for integrating forms and a database. By generating the schema to implement a form, a non-database programmer such as a designer can create web forms that store and display data to and from a database without programming any software. In this manner, designers can perform tasks that heretofore have required software engineers. A system and method for creating integrated web form and database applications.

  • Patent number: 8799762
    Abstract: A technique for generating a form is described. In the technique, a user provides information associated with a user-defined field, including a data type and/or semantic information for an entry associated with the user-defined field. Then, a computer system generates the form, which includes the user-defined field and additional fields based on the information associated with the user-defined field and the additional fields. This form includes a spatial reference pattern that, when printed on paper, facilitates data input using a writing instrument (such as a digital pen). Furthermore, generating the form may involve translating from a computer-input format of the form to a writing-instrument format based on specified layouts or sequential positions of the user-defined field and the additional fields. Next, the computer system provides the form to a user.

  • Patent number: 8782065
    Abstract: A system supports discovering available web services, retrieving description documents describing the web services, and binding methods and their parameters to data of an application document. When a user wants to bind a discovered web service to an application document, the system retrieves a description document from the web service. The system then parses the description document to identify the methods supported by the web service along with their parameters. The system allows a user to map method names and parameter names to more user-friendly display names. The system allows the user to bind the parameters to data of an application document. When the document is to be updated, the system sends a request for services specifying a method and input parameters as indicated by the binding. When a response is received, the system stores output parameters of the response in the document as indicating by the binding.
