Conversation to reach a goal may be created by stitching together pieces of past conversations. Conversations are stored and indexed. A user specifies a goal that the user would like to achieve through conversation. Pieces of conversation that could achieve that goal are retrieved and/or stitched together from smaller conversation fragments, and the resulting conversation pieces are evaluated for merit. The merit evaluator is pluggable so that different merit calculations may be used for various different situations. The conversation may be displayed or spoken to the user as a prompt, so that the user can engage in a real conversation with a real person based on the guidance received. The system can react to the current state of the conversation, and may change conversational strategies or even conversational goals during the course of the conversation.
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.
