Better Late Than Never!!!
Patent Target: Content Systems and products (Data transparency and auditability for content – from raw data collection to customer desktop delivery)
Executive Summary: Data (numbers) customers often see on our products have gone through significant amount of calculations. Complex calculation using data taken from different documents are required to come up with the correct results. Using this patent customer can click on a number on our product and see the formula with actual values used – if the number used in the formula was also derived through a calculation they customer can that formula as well (recursively), until customer gets to the raw data. (The raw data could be a set of numbers from multiple 1,000+ page documents like annual report, research report, court filing etc.)
Technology Implementation Summary: Standardized a way for content systems to represent complex proprietary formulas by extending MathML and integrating it in the content and product delivery systems.
