Patent Title: Event Handling System
I was doing some research on cyberspace situational awareness and was honored to noticed my prior art was referenced in a 2008 patent application by the Commonwealth of Australia. Here are some notable quotes from this patent application of an “event handling system.”
Section 8 of this part gives a brief overview of the requirement for intelligent interfaces with which a user may interact with the various elements of an agent Gestalt. Section 9 of this part provides some general comments on the architecture, while Section 10 of this part contrasts the system with the high-level work of Bass.
10.2 Comparison with the Bass Comments
The following discussion providing some background to the invention is intended to facilitate a better understanding of the invention. However, it should be appreciated that the discussion is not an acknowledgment or admission that any of the material referred to was published, known or part of the common general knowledge as at the priority date of the application.
In an edition of the Communications of the ACM “Intrusion Detection Systems & Multisensor Fusion: Creating Cyberspace Situational Awareness”, in Communications of the ACM 43(4), April 2000 Bass speculates on the future architecture requirements for Intrusion Detection Systems. In particular, he discusses the need for data abduction and points to the requirement for three main levels of semantic ascension.
The Shapes Vector architecture shows some necessary implementation strategies and architectural modifications in order to achieve that goal state. In particular Shapes Vector views the concept ascension requirement as a continuum where at any point in the AI agent Gestalt one “sees” knowledge production on looking “up”, and data supply looking “down”. The three main levels in the Shapes Vector Gestalt are delineated by the methods and logics used (i.e. first order predicate, possiblistic and probabilistic), rather than some delineation as to whether there is information, data, or knowledge as depicted in FIG. 13. Bass requirements for a “discovery module etc” become less important in the Shapes Vector architecture as any such function is a pervasive part of the system and is distributed amongst more primitive functions. The Agent Gestalt feeds the visualisation engines rather than some specific event though earlier papers do tend to indicate a separate module and as such those papers are a little misleading.
