Thomas P Moran, Scott L Minneman, Steve R Harrison, Donald G Kimber, William J van Melle, Polle T Zellweger, Gordon P Kurtenbach, Lynn D Wilcox, Sara A Bly, William C Janssen Jr, L Charles Hebel: System for the capture and replay of temporal data representing collaborative activities. Xerox Corporation, Richard B Domingo, February 10, 1998: US05717879 (360 worldwide citation)

A system for the capture and playback of temporal data representing a collaborative activity such as a meeting. Such temporal data is captured by one or more capture devices (e.g. audio recordings or an electronic whiteboard). Temporal data is comprised of timestreams and events. Timestreams are set ...

Lynn D Wilcox, Marcia A Bush: Wordspotting for voice editing and indexing. Xerox Corporation, March 30, 1993: US05199077 (228 worldwide citation)

A technique for wordspotting based on hidden Markov models (HMM's). The technique allows a speaker to specify keywords dynamically and to train the associated HMM's via a single repetition of a keyword. Non-keyword speech is modeled using an HMM trained from a prerecorded sample of continuous speech ...

Lynn D Wilcox, A Lawrence Spitz: Character and phoneme recognition based on probability clustering. Xerox Corporation, James T Beran, December 24, 1991: US05075896 (165 worldwide citation)

Prior to character or phoneme recognition, a classifier provides a respective probability list for each of a sequence of sample characters or phonemes, each probability list indicating the respective sample's probability for each character or phoneme type. These probability lists are clustered in ch ...

Xerox Corporation, Richard B Domingo, February 10, 1998: US05717869 (149 worldwide citation)

A system for capturing and controlling access to concurrently recorded timestreams of a session. A session is of a collaborative activity such as a meeting. Timestreams of the session are captured by various recording devices. The timestreams are analyzed to create a set of events for each timestrea ...

Lynn D Wilcox, William N Schilit, Nitin Sawhney, Joseph W Sullivan, Timothy W Bickmore: System for capturing and retrieving audio data and corresponding hand-written notes. Xerox Corporation, Fuji Xerox, Oliff & Berridge, October 19, 1999: US05970455 (134 worldwide citation)

An electronic notebook assigns properties to digital ink of note marks and keywords to digital pages. The properties indicate the type of note mark and the keywords indicate general content of the note marks on a digital page. The notebook also synchronizes audio data with the note marks and permits ...

Lynn D Wilcox, Patrick Chiu, Gene Golovchinsky, William N Schilit, Joseph W Sullivan: Method and apparatus for dynamically grouping a plurality of graphic objects. Fuji Xerox, Xerox Corporation, Oliff & Berridge, March 30, 1999: US05889523 (132 worldwide citation)

When dynamically grouping a plurality of graphic objects, such as displayed on a graphic input display apparatus, a cluster tree is formed for the plurality of graphic objects. The cluster tree is based on a plurality of different types of distance measures. These include a time distance and a spati ...

Francine R Chen, Lynn D Wilcox, Dan S Bloomberg: Word spotting in bitmap images using word bounding boxes and hidden Markov models. Xerox Corporation, Townsend and Townsend Khourie and Crew, August 1, 1995: US05438630 (118 worldwide citation)

Font-independent spotting of user-defined keywords in a scanned image. Word identification is based on features of the entire word without the need for segmentation or OCR, and without the need to recognize non-keywords. Font-independent character models are created using hidden Markov models (HMMs) ...

William Noah Schilit, Morgan N Price, Gene Golovchinsky, Lynn D Wilcox: Method and system for organizing documents based upon annotations in context. Xerox Corporation, Oliff & Berridge, August 21, 2001: US06279014 (117 worldwide citation)

A document organizing system extracts annotations made to a document along with the context surrounding each annotation and organizes the annotations based upon the annotation attributes and/or context. The annotations are created by grouping marks based upon their proximity in time and space. The d ...
