Whenever a profile agrees to a given extent with a given document pattern, the serial number, title, and author of the affected document, together with the action-point profile designation, are transferred and stored in a monitoring device. During the past decade significant progress has been made in applying machines to the processes of information retrieval.

This process of encoding constitutes a further abstraction and involves procedures such as the categorization of words by means of a thesaurus.

The techniques proposed here to make these things possible are: If a list of the documents retrieved is available, the process of retrieval may be greatly simplified.

Today would have been his th birthday. Another problem in communication is to discover the person or section within an organization whose interests or intellligence coincide most closely with a given situation. However, instead of simulating a document pattern, a profile pattern is developed which represents most closely itnelligence characteristics of an action point sought. His inventions have found applications in diverse areas like computer science, the textile industry, linguistics, and information science.

The resulting patterns are then stored in the Pattern Storage area in a special profile-storage device. This phase of the system concerns itself with the retrieval of those stored documents which might be relevant to a topic under consideration by an action point. The functions described so far have concerned themselves with documents admitted or acquired by the system from the outside. One of the most crucial hanw in communication is that businesw channeling a given item of information to those who need to know it.

The considerations which prompted the step-by-step acceptance of documents in the dissemination process are also applied to information retrieval. The system described here employs rather advanced design techniques and the question arises as to how far away such systek may be from realization.

The older the profile pattern, the closer an agreement is needed for selection for dissemination, and consequently the fewer documents are selected. This is accomplished by means of an information pattern similar to that of the documents.

Among other things, it includes: Selective acceptance of disseminated information The dissemination of information so far has consisted in furnishing the action point with the serial number, title, and author of documents selected for it. With Safari, you learn the way you learn best.

As even Howard says: In those cases where pertinent information has been businses, the acceptance of the complete documents of such information will cause the updating of the action-point profile, as was the case in dissemination.

Ideally, an automatic system is needed which can accept information in its original form, disseminate the data promptly to the proper places and furnish information on demand. The microfilm copy is then recopied onto the storage medium of a document microcopy storage device.

The Business Intelligence System provides means for selective dissemination to each of its action points in accordance with shstem current requirements or desires. There is also a growing need for more prompt decisions at levels of responsibility far below those customary in the hand.

Document output The functions described so far have concerned themselves with documents admitted or acquired by the system from the outside.

It might be desirable to check each new document for duplication by comparing it with all of the documents in storage. In those businews where the document has been addressed specifically to an action point, the original is promptly transmitted to the addressee. The microfilm copy of the document is transcribed onto magnetic tape by a human transcriber or a print-reading device.

Luhn was a pioneer in hash coding. Prospects for establishing a Business Intelligence System The system described here employs rather advanced design techniques and the question arises as to how far away such systems may be from realization.


The information to be discovered may vary widely and may consist of anything ranging from factual data to an extensive bibliography on a broad subject. Since this lunn tends to swamp the peted with paper, the probability of not communicating at all becomes great.

An information pattern is then derived from the query document in a manner similar to that used for normal documents. It is surprising that his name and contributions to information handling are largely forgotten. The document pattern derived by the above process is then transferred into a special pattern-storage device together with the title, author, and document serial number.

In a paper in the IBM Systems JournalHans Peter Luhn describes a system for “selective dissemination” of documents to “action points” based on the “interest profiles” of the individual action points.

Auto-abstracting of documents; Auto-encoding of documents; Automatic creation and updating of action-point profiles. Also stored, with each of these profile patterns, is the date of entry. The comparisons are carried out on the basis of degree of similarity, expressed in terms of a fraction, for each of oeter profile patterns. He also proposes “reporters” to periodically sift the data and selectively move information to action points as needed.

A Business Intelligence System. In businesw case the specialized system would each assume the role of an action point in the mother system. This would be justified where many of the inquiries concern lookup-type retrieval of data.

Since a history of the usage of the system is stored in the monitor, an analysis of its records will disclose the efficiency of system operation. Instead the system is to be operated by experienced library workers.
