(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Targeted News Service Targeted News Service ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 20 -- The following federal patents were awarded to inventors in New Hampshire.

*** Veveo Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 20 -- Veveo, Andover, Mass., has been assigned a patent (8,380,726) developed by Murali Aravamudan, Windham, N.H., Ajit Rajasekharan, West Windsor, N.J., and Kajamalai G. Ramakrishnan, Nashua, N.H., for "methods and systems for selecting and presenting content based on a comparison of preference signatures from multiple users." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method of selecting and presenting content based on a comparison of preference signatures from multiple users is provided. The method includes providing a set of content items and presenting a subset of these content items in response to search input received from users. The method further includes receiving content selection actions and learning users' preferences, wherein the preferences are weighted based on user activity. The method further includes identifying users with similar preferences by comparing sets of learned user preferences and using this information to select and present content items to a user." The patent application was filed on March 6, 2007 (11/682,533). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,80,726.PN.&OS=PN/83,80,726&RS=PN/83,80,726 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.


*** Mathworks Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 20 -- Mathworks, Natick, Mass., has been assigned a patent (8,380,880) developed by five co-inventors for a scalable architecture. The co-inventors are Edward Whittington Gulley, Watertown, Mass., Joseph F. Hicklin, Upton, Mass., James N. Gonthier, Sutton, Mass., John Richard Langley, Hollis, N.H., and Joseph Conti, Newton, Mass.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Exemplary embodiments may employ techniques for dynamically dispatching requests to resources operating in a distributed computing environment, such as a computing cloud, according to one or more policies. Embodiments may further dynamically adjust resources in the computing environment using predictive models that use current loads as an input. Embodiments may still further maintain a state for a processing environment independent of the type or configuration of a device used to access the environment on behalf of a user." The patent application was filed on Dec. 31, 2009 (12/651,284). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,380,880&OS=8,380,880&RS=8,380,880 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "In at least one embodiment, an apparatus for determining one or more affinity groups in a distributed network is provided. A first distributed computing device is operably coupled to a plurality of clients for enabling electronic interactive activities therebetween. The first distributed computing device is configured to detect at least one network interaction among the plurality of clients. The first distributed computing device is further configured to generate at least one weighted value based on the number of detected network interactions. The first distributed computing device is further configured to establish an affinity group comprising at least one client from the plurality of clients based on the at least one weighted value." The patent application was filed on Sept. 10, 2009 (12/556,672). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,380,843&OS=8,380,843&RS=8,380,843 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.
