Automatic, personalized online information and product services

A method for providing automatic, personalized information services to a computer user includes the following steps: transparently monitoring user interactions with data during normal use of the computer; updating user-specific data files including a set of user-related documents; estimating parameters of a learning machine that define a User Model specific to the user, using the user-specific data files; analyzing a document to identify its properties; estimating the probability that the user is interested in the document by applying the document properties to the parameters of the User Model; and providing personalized services based on the estimated probability. Personalized services include personalized searches that return only documents of interest to the user, personalized crawling for maintaining an index of documents of interest to the user; personalized navigation that recommends interesting documents that are hyperlinked to documents currently being viewed; and personalized news, in which a third party server customized its interaction with the user. The User Model includes continually-updated measures of user interest in words or phrases, web sites, topics, products, and product features. The measures are updated based on both positive examples, such as documents the user bookmarks, and negative examples, such as search results that the user does not follow. Users are clustered into groups of similar users by calculating the distance between User Models.

Method, system, and computer program product for visualizing a data structure

A data structure visualization tool visualizes a data structure such as a decision table classifier. A data file based on a data set of relational data is stored as a relational table, where each row represents an aggregate of all the records for each combination of values of the attributes used. Once loaded into memory, an inducer is used to construct a hierarchy of levels, called a decision table classifier, where each successive level in the hierarchy has two fewer attributes. Besides a column for each attribute, there is a column for the record count (or more generally, sum of record weights), and a column containing a vector of probabilities (each probability gives the proportion of records in each class). Finally, at the top-most level, a single row represents all the data. The decision table classifier is then passed to the visualization tool for display and the decision table classifier is visualized. By building a representative scene graph adaptively, the visualization application never loads the whole data set into memory. Interactive techniques, such as drill-down and drill-through are used view further levels of detail or to retrieve some subset of the original data. The decision table visualizer helps a user understand the importance of specific attribute values for classification.

Card dispensing shoe with scanner apparatus, system and method therefor

The present invention is directed to a playing card dispensing shoe apparatus, system and method wherein the shoe has a card scanner which scans the indicia on a playing card as the card moves along and out of a chute of the shoe by operation of the dealer. The scanner comprises an optical-sensor used in combination with a neural network which is trained using error back-propagation to recognize the card suits and card values of the playing cards as they are moved past the scanner. The scanning process in combination with a central processing unit (CPU) determines the progress of the play of the game and, by identifying card counting systems or basic playing strategies in use by the players of the game, provides means to limit or prevent casino losses and calculate the Theoretical Win of the casino, thus also providing an accurate quality method of the amount of comps to be given a particular player. The shoe is also provided with additional devices which make it simple and easy to access, record and display other data relevant to the play of the game. These include means for acconunodating a "customer-tracking card" which reads each player's account information from a magnetic stripe on the card, thus providing access to the player's customer data file stored on the casino's computer system, and one or more alpha-numeric keyboards and LCD displays used to enter and retrieve player and game information. Also included are keyboards on the game table so that each player can individually select various playing or wagering options using their own keyboard.

Logical access block processing protocol for transparent secure file storage

Network data files are secure through the operation of an infrastructure gateway-based network file access appliance. Network file data, corresponding to network pocket payload data, are further reduced to a sequence of data blocks that are secured through any combination of block encryption, compression, and digital signatures. File meta-data, including encryption, compression and block-level digital signatures are persistently stored with the file data, either in-band in the file as stored or out-of-band key as a separately stored file or file policy record. File meta-data is recovered with accesses of the file data to support bidirectional encryption and compression and to detect tampering with the file data by comparison against block-level digital signatures.

System and method for comprehensive general electric protection for computers against malicious programs that may steal information and/or cause damages

In the prior art of computer security by default programs are allowed to do whatever they like to other programs or to their data files or to critical files of the operating system, which is as absurd as letting a guest in a hotel bother other guests as he pleases, steal their property or copy it or destroy it, or have free access to the hotel's management resources. The present concept is based on automatic segregation between programs. This is preferably done by creating automatically an unlimited number of Virtual Environments (VEs) with virtual sharing of resources, so that the programs in each VE think that they are alone on the computer, and (unless explicitly allowed by the user) any changes that they think they made in virtually shared resources are in reality only made in their own VE, while the user preferably has an integrated view of the computer.

Methods and systems for selectively displaying advertisements

A system, including a planning module, a control module and a receiver module, configured to schedule display of one or more advertising impressions of available advertising inventory. The planning module enables scheduling a requested quantity of advertising impressions in accordance with target criteria. Further, the planning module enables selecting an advertising impression goal for advertisement, assigning an advertising type and defining a weight for the advertisements. The control module receives the schedule, the advertising type and the defined weights and generates one or more metadata files that contain target criteria, advertising type and weights for the advertisements. The one or more metadata files, with the advertisements, are delivered to the receiver module that is configured to define a display frequency for the advertisements based upon one or more of the metadata files. The receiver module selectively displays advertisement content associated with the advertisements to achieve the advertising impression goal.

Computer system for management of resources

The invention concerns a system for managing resources, which can take the form of (a) computer-compatible information, such as data files and programs, and (b) non-computer-compatible information, as data contained on microfiche, and (c) physical objects. The resources are located at graphically diverse sites. The invention contains a descriptive profile for each resource, and allows any user to search all profiles, and to search the profiles according to "fields" (a database term), such as by location of the resources, or by category of the resources. The user can order delivery of a selected resource, and the system causes delivery of the resource to be executed, irrespective of the form (eg, physical object) of the resource. The invention allows a provider of a new resource to limit access to the resource, by identifying users who are authorized to obtain access to the resource. Non-authorized users cannot obtain access to the profiles of these resources.

Virtual desktop manager system and method

The present invention comprises a method and computer implemented system for presenting multiple virtual desktops on a display of a computer system. A “pager” window is displayed on a desktop (either real or virtual) which comprises multiple subpanes, each of which contains a scaled virtual desktop having dimensions that are proportional to, but less than the dimensions of a corresponding virtual desktop. Each scaled virtual desktop provides a representation of the corresponding full-size virtual desktop that would display one or more application windows whose content may optionally be replaced by the icon designating the application program or data file displayed therein, for sake of visual clarity. The present invention also provides a mechanism for varying the background image of virtual desktop, and thus, of each scaled virtual desktop pane, in addition to a number of enhancements to the user interface for controlling the virtual desktop environment including transparency hiding of the pager window, constant aspect ratio scaling of the pager window, mouse desktop changing with corner exclusion, display and interaction with window lists, individual pop up menus for windows, starting desktop selection, a method for moving windows between virtual desktops, a method to override virtual desktop behaviors, a method for placing child windows on the same desktop as the parent window, notification of desktop changes, tracking topmost application on other desktops, sticky monitors, and API remote control.

Method and storage and manipulation of storage system metrics

A method for storage and manipulation of storage system metrics incorporates a self-describing format wherein each data file includes a header block that contains the description and order of the periodic data. The header block is followed by a data block in which the data items are presented in the order that they appear in the data description block for that category. Two types of data are managed, including Base Metrics and Derived Metrics. Base Metrics are metrics that appear in the data file sent by an agent. Derived Metrics are computed based on a set of functions that derive new metrics from the base metrics as well as from previously defined derived metrics. A subset of the data block or file describes the configuration of the storage system at the time that the data file was created. Thus the data file contains a header section that in addition to describing the metrics also describes the configuration. A performance view component a user interface that facilitates access to the archives, and data manipulation effecting enhanced performance analysis, workload characterization and capacity planning. The performance view component facilitates generation of factory and user defined views of monitored metrics / parameters. Metrics from a storage system can be correlated using the performance view features, and parameters across machines can be correlated as well. System configuration(s) can be viewed and changed via the performance view user interface.
