A World Wide Web browser makes requests to web servers on a network which receives and fulfills requests as an agent of the browser client, organizing distributed sub-agents as distributed integration solution (DIS) or intelligent decision server (IDS) servers on an intranet network supporting the web server which also has access agent servers accessible over the Internet. DIS or IDS servers execute selected capsule objects which perform programmable functions upon a received command from a web server control program agent for retrieving, from a database gateway coupled to a plurality of database resources upon a single request made from a Hypertext document, requested information from multiple data bases located at different types of databases geographically dispersed, performing calculations, formatting, and other services prior to reporting to the web browser or to other locations, in a selected format. … [Read more...] about Google Acquires More IBM Patents In September

A search engine having a controller, a memory, and at least one hash-CAM (H-CAM). The memory includes a database of search values and associate content or just associate content. The controller uses search values to access the memory to obtain the search results. The H-CAM includes at least one set of paired hash units and CAM units and at least one logic unit. The CAM units hold values known to cause hash collisions in the paired hash units, and the logic unit prioritizes the hash and CAM unit outputs to address values usable to access the memory and obtain a search result at the controller that is not the result of a hash collision. The H-CAM may optionally include a search data storage to store the search values, so that they need not be stored in the memory, and a comparator to determine and handle new search data based hash collisions. The H-CAM may optionally also be cascaded. … [Read more...] about Google Acquires Non-Strategic Mosaid Technologies Patents

As a side note, one issue with any large index is keeping it fresh. Cuil says that they crawl 1 to 1.5 billion pages per day, which means it would take 3 months to refresh everything they’ve currently spidered. However,some important pages are crawled on a weekly basis, they said. That’s good — but Google has pages that can be added in near-real time thanks to its instant layer. … [Read more...] about Cuil Launches — Can This Search Start-Up Really Best Google?
