    4. Chinese word segmentation apparatus

      A Chinese word segmentation apparatus relates to processing of a Chinese sentence input to a computer. A character-to-phonetic converter of the segmentation apparatus initially converts a Chinese sentence into a phonetic symbol string while referring to a character phonetic dictionary and a ductionary for characters with different pronunciations. Thereafter, a candidate word-selector refers to a system dictionary to retrieve all of the possible candidate characters or words in the phonetic symbol string and relevant information, such as frequency of use, using the phonetic symbols as indexing terms. Unfeasible candidate characters or words are discarded. Subsequently, an optimum candidate character string-decider ...

    7. Techniques for controlling distribution of information from a secure domain

      Techniques for controlling distribution of information from a secure domain by automatically detecting outgoing messages which violate security policies corresponding to the secure domain. Semantic models are constructed for one or more message categories and for the outgoing messages. The semantic model of an outgoing message is compared with the semantic models of the message categories to determine a degree of similarity between the semantic models. The outgoing message is classified based on the degree of similarity obtained from the comparison. A determination is made, based on the classification of the outgoing message, if distribution of the outgoing message would ...

    10. Topological methods to organize semantic network data flows for conversational applications

      A system and methods for enforcing uniform branching of node-to-node inheritance links within semantic networks, to control data flows to and from such networks in conversational applications. Enforced uniform branching criteria converge the population of directly connected nodes of each node toward a small system-wide constant, and converge each sibling inheritance node to a similar level of abstractness, and are also used to select the best candidate tree from a set of competing representation trees within the semantic network. Uniform branching criteria are applied to competing trees for speech recognition, for object recognition in vision systems, for concept recognition in ...

    12. Categorization based text processing

      A rules based configurable system efficiently and effectively determines for a given electronically represented text document which linguistic analysis and extraction processes and which application specific processes should be invoked to provide more accurate answers to a user's query. In a rules based classifier, where each category or topic is represented by a set of rules, in an application such as routing, the categorization effecting the routing can be effectively combined with processes extracting other information. This may be in the form of a prompt for the user to input additional information.

    16. Meaning-based information organization and retrieval

      The present invention relies on the idea of a meaning-based search, allowing users to locate information that is close in meaning to the concepts they are searching. A semantic space is created by a lexicon of concepts and relations between concepts. A query is mapped to a first meaning differentiator, representing the location of the query in the semantic space. Similarly, each data element in the target data set being searched is mapped to a second meaning differentiator, representing the location of the data element in the semantic space. Searching is accomplished by determining a semantic distance between the first ...
