The method is described as a way for adapting elements of a network, comprising: providing graphs each representing a particular sequential snapshot of a dynamic graph obtained over the course of a time period that is historical wherein the nodes of the graphs denote entities, while edges of graphs represent interactions between the entities over the network, computing community graphs based on graphs and computing meta-community graphs in accordance to the community graphs analysing the dynamics of community graphs to detect changes between two temporally adjacent community graphs. meta-community graphs’ dynamics to identify the changes between two adjacent temporally meta-community graphs, identifying at least one person which is related to node(s) of the dynamic graph based on the likelihood that it is likely to perform an unnatural action during a future time interval, and generating instructions to modify the component(s) of the network to ensure availability of network resources to support interactions between entities in the future time interval.

The present invention, as various embodiments of it, relates to the detection of anomalies, and more specifically, but certainly not exclusively to detecting abnormal actions of the nodes in a network.

Anomalous actions within the computer network could be the result of data that does not conform to a pattern that is expected. Anomalous actions may be indicative of a problem, or may be indicative of unexpected actions that are not necessarilyproblematic or malicious.

What is a patent?

A patent is granted by the government in order to protect the idea. The patent grants the inventor the exclusive right to develop, utilize and market the invention. Society gains when new technology is introduced to market. These benefits could be realized directly as people can achieve previously unattainable feats or through the economic benefits that innovation offers (business growth, jobs).

A lot of pharmaceutical companies and researchers at universities seek protection from patents in their research and development. Patents can be granted for products, processes, or method of making new materials. To be granted patent protection an invention has to be innovative, novel and not be obvious to others within the same area.

Patents are awarded to inventors who have commercially viable inventions. They act as a motivator for inventors to come up with new ideas. Patents allow inventors and small businesses to know that there is the possibility that they’ll be paid back on their time, effort and money spent on the development of technology. It means that they can earn money from their work.

Businesses that have the capacity to:

Protect innovative products and services;

Improve the value, the visibility, and attractiveness of your product on the market

Stand out and differentiate yourself and your product from the rest.

Find out about business and technical information.

Beware of the possibility of using proprietary third-party content, or losing your valuable information, innovative outputs, or another creative output.

Patents convert knowledge of the inventor into a valuable asset which creates new opportunities for employment creation by licensing joint ventures and joint ventures.

Investors involved in the development and commercialization of technology will appreciate small businesses with patent protection to be more attractive.

Patenting may lead to the development of innovative ideas and inventions. This information can promote creativity and could be eligible to be protected by patents.

Patents are a way to stop untrustworthy third parties from making money from the invention’s efforts.

Revenues from patent-protected technology that are commercially successful can be used to fund the development of technology through research and development (R&D), which will increase the chance of better technology in the future.

Intellectual property ownership can be used to convince investors and lenders that there are genuine chances to commercialize your product. Sometimes, one powerful patent could open the door to multiple financing options. You can use patents and other IP assets as collateral or security for financing. Investors can also see the patents you own to increase the value of your company. Forbes and other sources have pointed out that every patent could add anywhere from $500,000 to a million dollars in company valuation.

A well-written business plan is crucial for start-ups. It must be based on IP and demonstrate the way your product or service is distinctive. Investors will also be impressed if you have IP rights are secured or in the process to becoming secure, and that they agree with your business strategy.

It is essential to protect an invention before applying for patent protection. The public disclosure of an invention before filing it is often detrimental to its novelty and render it unpatentable. Pre-filing disclosures, such as for investors, test marketing, or other business partners should be done only after signing a confidentiality agreement.

There are numerous types of patents. Knowing them is essential for protecting your invention. Utility patents protect new processes and machine creations. Design patents cover ornamental designs. Patents for utility are the best option and shield the proprietor from copycats and other competitors. In most cases they are granted for modifications or improvements to existing inventions. Utility patents can also be used to improve or alter existing inventions. For example, a procedure patent covers acts or methods for performing an action, while a chemical composition will include a mixture of ingredients.

How long does a patent last? Although utility patents are valid up to 20 years from their initial filing, they can be extended through delays at the Patent Office.

How to Search for Patents

Patent searches are the first step in obtaining your patent. You can do a google patent search or do a USPTO search. After the patent application is filed, the item covered by the application can be called patent-pending, and you can find the patent application online on the public pair. After the patent office has approved the application, you can perform a patent search to locate the patent issued and your product will now be patented. Alongside the USPTO search engine, you may also use other search engines, such as espacenet, as detailed below. It is possible to seek help from an attorney for patents. Patents granted in the United States are granted by the US trademark and patent office or the United States patent office. The trademark office also evaluates trademark applications.

Interested in finding more similar patents? Here are the steps to follow:

1. Brainstorm terms that describe your invention based upon its purpose, composition, and use.

Begin by writing down a succinct and precise description of your idea. Do not use generic terms such as “device,” “process,” and “system.” Instead, look for synonyms for the terms you chose initially. Then, take note of important technical terms as well as keywords.

To help you find terms and keywords, you can use the following questions.

  • What is the objective of the invention? Is it a utilitarian device or an ornamental design?
  • Invention is a method to create something or perform a function? Are you referring to a product?
  • What is the purpose and composition of the invention? What is the physical makeup of the invention?
  • What’s the purpose of the invention
  • What are technical terms and key words that define the essence of an invention? A technical dictionary will help you find the appropriate phrases.

2. Use these terms to find relevant Cooperative Patent Classifications on the Classification Text Search Tool. If you are unable to find the right classification to describe your invention, look through the classification’s Schemas of classes (class schedules) and then try again. If you do not get results using the Classification Text Search, you may consider substituting the words to describe your invention using synonyms.

3. Review 3. Review the CPC Classification Definition to verify the validity of the CPC classification you’ve found. The hyperlink to the CPC classification definition will be given when the classification you have selected contains a blue box with “D” to the left. CPC classification definitions can be used to determine the relevant classification’s scope which is why you can be sure to select the most appropriate. They may also provide search tips or other suggestions that could be helpful for further research.

4. Retrieve patent documents with the CPC classification from the Patents Full-Text and Image Database. You can look through and find the relevant patent publications by focusing first on the abstract and the drawings that are representative.

5. Take advantage of this list of most relevant patent publications to examine each in detail for similarities to your invention. Be sure to read the specification and claims. You may find additional patents through contacting the patent examiner as well as the applicant.

6. Find patent applications published in the public domain using the CPC classification you picked in Step 3 of the Applications Full-Text and Image Database. It is possible to use the same search strategy as in Step 4. You can narrow your results to the most relevant patent applications through the abstract and representative illustrations on every page. After that, you must review every patent application that has been published with care, paying special attention to the claims, and other drawings.

7. You can look up other US patent publications by keyword searching in AppFT or PatFT databases, and also search for patents classified as not from the United States in the following table. You can also utilize web search engines to search non-patent documents that describe inventions in the literature. Here are a few examples:

  • Add keywords to your search. Keyword searches may turn up documents that are not well-categorized or have missed classifications during Step 2. For example, US patent examiners often supplement their classification searches with keyword searches. Think about the use of technical engineering terminology rather than everyday words.
  • Search for foreign patents using the CPC classification. Then, re-run the search using international patent office search engines such as Espacenet, the European Patent Office’s worldwide patent publication database of over 130 million patent publications. Other national databases include:
  • Search non-patent literature. Inventions can be made public in many non-patent publications. It is recommended that you search journals, books, websites, technical catalogs, conference proceedings, and other print and electronic publications.

To review your search, you can hire a registered patent attorney to assist. A preliminary search will help one better prepare to talk about their invention and other related inventions with a professional patent attorney. In addition, the attorney will not spend too much time or money on patenting basics.
