An information type is a specific category of information (e.g., privacy, medical, proprietary, financial, investigative, contractor sensitive, security management) defined by an organization or, in some instances, by a specific law, Executive Order, directive, policy, or regulation.

Method and apparatus for the management of data files

The present invention provides a network system for storage of medical records. The records are stored in a database on a server. Each record includes two main parts, namely a collection of data elements containing information of medical nature for the certain individual, and a plurality of pointers providing addresses or remote locations where reside other medical data for that particular individual. Each record also includes a data element indicative of the basic type of medical data found at the location pointed to by a particular pointer. This arrangement permits a client workstation to download the record along with the set of pointers which link the client to the remotely stored files. The identification of the basic type of information that each pointer points to allows the physician to select the ones of interest and thus avoid downloading massive amounts of data where only part of that data is needed at that time. In addition, this record structure allows statistical queries to be effected without the necessity of accessing the data behind the pointers. For instance, a query can be built based on keys, one of which is the type of data that a pointer points to. The query can thus be performed solely on the basis of the pointers and the remaining information held in the record.

Customizable flip and browse overlays in an interactive television system

Systems and methods are provided for customizing the display of interactive television overlays. A condition related to the display of an overlay on top of video for a television channel may be defined for each of a plurality of television channels. A default set of information types for an interactive television overlay (e.g., a FLIP overlay, a BROWSE overlay, etc.) may be defined for the plurality of television channels. When the overlay is displayed on top of video for a given television channel of the plurality of television channels, the overlay may include information of the default set of information types. One or more television channels of the plurality of television channels may be identified as channels for which the default set of information types does not apply (e.g., channels for which the overlay is not displayed or for which a custom set of information types is defined).

Method of cache management to dynamically update information-type dependent cache policies

A set associative cache includes a cache controller, a directory, and an array including at least one congruence class containing a plurality of sets. The plurality of sets are partitioned into multiple groups according to which of a plurality of information types each set can store. The sets are partitioned so that at least two of the groups include the same set and at least one of the sets can store fewer than all of the information types. To optimize cache operation, the cache controller dynamically modifies a cache policy of a first group while retaining a cache policy of a second group, thus permitting the operation of the cache to be individually optimized for different information types. The dynamic modification of cache policy can be performed in response to either a hardware-generated or software-generated input.

Dynamic information object cache approach useful in a vocabulary retrieval system

A concept cache useful in a vocabulary management system stores references to individual information objects that can be retrieved and dynamically assembled into electronic documents. Information objects are organized in one or more hierarchical trees, and references to nodes in the trees are cached. A query processor receives a cache query from a delivery engine that is attempting to dynamically construct an electronic document with content that matches the query. For example, a common Web site query contains a concept and an information type. The cache is searched to identify one or more rows that match the query concept and the query information type. An intersection of the rows is determined, yielding a result set of rows. Index pointers in the rows of the result set lead to stored information objects, which are passed to the delivery engine. The delivery engine assembles the electronic document using the information objects. Unlike past approaches that cache static pages, rapid delivery of dynamic pages is facilitated. Vocabularies and relationships are cached with their references to other objects, as needed, facilitating speed of execution of both the logic of constructing a document and in finding the appropriate cached version of an information object.

Data conversion environment

Converting data from a first format to a second format may be used to merge two databases having different formatting. Conversion maps may be defined for pairs of formats and may be used to convert data between the pair of formats. Data may further be transformed from one information type or format into another information type or format. In one example, a first format may allow storage of a social security number while a second format might not. Thus, a social security number stored in the first format may be converted to an employee number for storage in the second format. Collisions between pieces of data may be detected and managed by generating an identifier for the pieces of data (e.g., data records) and merging the pieces of data into a single piece or portion of data (e.g., a single data record) corresponding to the assigned identifier.

Techniques for forming electronic documents comprising multiple information types

Techniques for forming electronic documents include storing a plurality of information types for describing how information is used. Also, a plurality of document types is stored. Each document type includes a unique set of information types. A plurality of units of information is also stored. Each unit of information is associated with an information type. A document is produced based on a particular document type having a particular set of information types, and based on a first set of units of information. Each unit of information of the first set is associated with a corresponding information type in the particular set of information types. This invention allows content to be associated with a particular use, through the information type, so that the content can be incorporated in all documents where such usage is desired. This invention also allows the enterprise to control the method of generating and presenting a particular content or information object based on its use and its temporal data, e.g., how often it is refreshed. Such control is employed in predictive caching technologies. Further, the system can allow and reference which documents or info types point to other documents or info types, thereby enabling the system to replace all affected objects and pointers when changes occur, and facilitating caching all objects that are affected by a change.

Automatic online form filling using semantic inference

A machine learning based automated online form-filling technique provides for automatically completing user input controls based on previously stored information. An associative parser is used to identify and associate characteristics related to form controls with the corresponding form controls. The characteristics of the user input controls are input into a machine learning based semantic inference engine that was trained for the purpose of identifying the type of information that is supposed to be input into various user input controls. The semantic inference engine operates to label the controls in a manner that describes the meaning of the control, i.e., the type of information that should be automatically input into the corresponding controls. Consequently, the user input controls can be automatically filled in with previously stored user profile information associated with the corresponding labels.
