Method, system and computer program product for automating expertise management using social and enterprise data

A method includes performing contextual association of entities using multi-source data. For each context the method performs co-clustering to identify distinct expert-skill associations; constructing single-entity unipartite graph representations and performing a random walk within each single-entity unipartite graph; for each single-entity unipartite graph, obtaining steady state distributions using the random walks to obtain clusters of experts and skills; performing a weighted two-way random walk across entity graphs (graph edges), giving preference to traversal within members of the same co-cluster; and performing link prediction for each context by dynamically adding edges, and obtaining overall skills predictions, analyses and inferences by merging the contexts and weighting the links of each context.

Self learning radio frequency monitoring system for identifying and locating faults in electrical distribution systems

Electrical faults are detected in electrical distribution systems (eds) by detection and location of radio frequency (rf) emissions generated by the fault with multiple time-synchronized radio frequency monitors (rfm) distributed about the eds. The rfms are coupled to a self-learning, electrical fault monitor (efm) that characterizes and/or locates electrical faults based on operating state (os) patterns learned from transmission of test signals generated within the eds.

System and method that applies relational and non-relational data structures to medical diagnosis

A medical diagnosis system comprises one or more databases configured to store a plurality of relational tables within a relational data structure and a non-relational table within a non-relational data structure. The plurality of relational tables comprise a symptom table configured to associate a plurality of symptoms having symptom name fields with a corresponding plurality of symptom identifier fields (symptom id).


System for genome analysis and genetic disease diagnosis

The method for genome analysis translates the clinical findings in the patient into a comprehensive test order for genes that can be causative of the patient's illness, delimits analysis of variants identified in the patient's genome to those that are “on target” for the patient's illness, and provides clinical annotation of the likely causative variants for inclusion in a variant warehouse that is updated as a result of each sample that is analyzed and that, in turn, provides a source of additional annotation for variants. The method uses a genome sequence having the steps of entering at least one clinical feature of a patient by an end-user, assigning a weighted value to the term based on the probability of the presence of the term, mapping the term to at least one disease by accessing a knowledge base containing a plurality of data sets, wherein the data sets are made up of associations between (i) clinical features and diseases, (ii) diseases and genes, (iii) genes and genetic variants, and (iv) diseases and gene variants, assigning a truth value to each of the mapped terms based on the associated data sets and the weighted value, to provide a list of results of possible diagnoses prioritized based on the truth values, with continuous adjustment of the weightings of associations in the knowledge base based on updating of each discovered diagnosis and attendant clinical features, genes and gene variants.
