Digital Reasoning secures additional patent

Local software company Digital Reasoning announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued it a patent related to image resolution.

The patent (read more here), specifically for a "system and method for coreference resolution," is part of the Cool Springs-based company's portfolio that includes five issued patents and numerous other pending patent applications.

"We are now able to perform entity resolution at an unprecedented quality and scale,” Matthew Russell, Digital Reasoning chief technology officer, said in a release. “The benefit for consumers of our technology is that they'll be able to employ a machine to identify the unique identities for people, places, and organizations across millions of documents containing human language. Transforming digital human language data into actionable information is a monumental task that is difficult for even highly competent teams of subject matter experts to accomplish, and we can now use automated and customizable processes to do it in a scalable manner.”

The patent announcement follows the company’s recent addition of two enterprise software executives. (Read more here.)

Moontoast lands second patent

Moontoast, the social commerce platform company that is co-based in Boston and Nashville, has landed its second patent.

Marcus Whitney, Moontoast's Nashville-based co-founder and chief technology officer, landed the patent (titled "System and method of analyzing and valuating social media campaigns”) with John Baker of Cambridge, Mass.

“It’s the analytics message for scoring so that we can know what is successful or not successful for those social media campaigns our clients use,” Whitney (pictured) told the Post via phone.

The patent is a continuation of the first Moontoast patent, Whitney said.
