Today we are shar­ing a 2003 patent assigned to Accen­ture Glob­al Ser­vices Lim­it­ed. (As men­tioned, we are fea­tur­ing a foun­da­tion­al Per­va­sive Neu­rotech patent a day, from old­er to new­er by issue date)

U.S. Patent No. 6,611,822: Sys­tem method and arti­cle of man­u­fac­ture for cre­at­ing col­lab­o­ra­tive appli­ca­tion shar­ing.

  • Assignee(s): Accen­ture Glob­al Ser­vices Lim­it­ed
  • Inventor(s): Bri­an R. Beams, Scott B. Har­ris
  • Tech­nol­o­gy Cat­e­go­ry: Neu­rocog­ni­tive Train­ing
  • Issue Date: August 26, 2003

SharpBrains’ Take:

The ‘882 patent presents extreme­ly broad claims over sub­ject mat­ter relat­ing to online col­lab­o­ra­tive train­ing, which includes appli­ca­tions direct­ed towards cog­ni­tive train­ing. The three inde­pen­dent claims essen­tial­ly mir­ror each oth­er but pos­sess a large scope of pro­tec­tion. Almost any activ­i­ty relat­ing to online inter­ac­tive col­lab­o­ra­tion, whether through a shared screen appli­ca­tion or online video exchange, presents a rea­son­able chance of falling with­in the scope of the ‘882 patent claims. An exten­sive spec­i­fi­ca­tion describes approach­es for online inter­ac­tive appli­ca­tions includ­ing sim­u­la­tion mod­els that con­sid­er cog­ni­tion test­ing and improve­ment. Recit­ing 19 claims in total, the expan­sive claim cov­er­age and sub­stan­tial spec­i­fi­ca­tion (span­ning 83 illus­tra­tion sheets and 59 pages of writ­ten mate­r­i­al) are among the fac­tors mak­ing the ‘822 patent a key non-inva­sive neu­rotech­nol­o­gy patent.

Abstract:

A sys­tem is dis­closed that pro­vides a goal based learn­ing sys­tem uti­liz­ing a rule based expert train­ing sys­tem to pro­vide a cog­ni­tive edu­ca­tion­al expe­ri­ence. The sys­tem pro­vides the user with a sim­u­lat­ed envi­ron­ment that presents a train­ing oppor­tu­ni­ty to under­stand and solve opti­mal­ly. The tech­nique estab­lish­es a col­lab­o­ra­tive train­ing ses­sion, includ­ing the steps of estab­lish­ing a net­work con­nec­tion between a plu­ral­i­ty of users, select­ing a mode for the net­work con­nec­tion between the plu­ral­i­ty of users, estab­lish­ing a net­work con­nec­tion mode between the plu­ral­i­ty of users, and syn­chro­niz­ing the mode between the plu­ral­i­ty of users. Modes of oper­a­tion include appli­ca­tion shar­ing, white board­ing, media shar­ing, news­group infor­ma­tion shar­ing, cha­t­room ini­ti­a­tion and dis­cus­sion group ini­ti­a­tion.

Illus­tra­tive Claim 1. A method for estab­lish­ing a col­lab­o­ra­tive train­ing ses­sion, com­pris­ing the steps of:

  1. estab­lish­ing a net­work con­nec­tion between a plu­ral­i­ty of users;
  2. select­ing a mode for the net­work con­nec­tion between the plu­ral­i­ty of users;
  3. estab­lish­ing the net­work con­nec­tion mode between the plu­ral­i­ty of users; and
  4. syn­chro­niz­ing the mode between the plu­ral­i­ty of users.
