A sequence of events may be planned by drawing on knowledge of existing sequences of events, and combining those events in accordance with a set of constraints. In one example, the sequences of events are events in a social agenda, such as dinner, drinks, movie, etc. Actual social agendas that users have carried out are monitored (with the users' permission), and these events are stored in a database. A sequence of events may be referred to as an existing path. Using the database, a system can respond to a query such as “plan an evening in Seattle,” or “plan an evening in that includes a movie” by querying the database to determine what sequences have already happened, and either retrieving an existing sequence or synthesizing a new one from existing sequences.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
