A method implemented by a computer. The method includes displaying, on a tangible display device, a pinboard including a first breadcrumb on a first area of the display device, wherein the breadcrumb points to first data. The method also includes displaying, on a second area of the tangible display device different than the first area, a plurality of categories of information regarding the first data. The method also includes responsive to selecting a first category of the plurality of categories, performing both of: displaying details regarding the first category in a third area of the tangible display device different than the first area and the second area, as well as updating the breadcrumb to point to second data relating to the first category, whereby faster operation of the computer is enabled by avoidance of intervening user actions.

A method and apparatus for normalizing data. A computer system receives category data for a first code from a first client of a plurality of clients. The computer system also generates a category rule based on the category data. The computer system also assigns a category to a second code of a second client of the plurality of clients using the category rule. The category data is generated using input from the first client. Assigning the category to the second code of the second client comprises selecting the category rule to use to assign the category to the second code from a plurality of category rules.

A computer system comprises a display system and a portfolio builder in communication with the display system. The portfolio builder identifies activities of an employee. In response to identifying the activities, the portfolio builder identifies achievements of the employee from the activities. Further, the portfolio builder identifies recommended achievements from the achievements based on the application of one or more rules in a policy. Still further, the portfolio builder associates the recommended achievements with an achievement portfolio of the employee, enabling performing an operation for the organization based on the skills for the people in the organization.

A method for computer security. A gallery comprising a first identity of a first human person is maintained, the first identity associated with a plurality of tags, with first properties, useful for identifying the first human person. A first Internet search for facial images of the first human person is performed using the plurality of tags. A first facial image is selected from the results of this search. A second Internet search is performed for facial images of other human persons based on second properties that are generated by modifying the first properties of the plurality of tags. A plurality of additional facial images of the other human persons retrieved by the second Internet search is selected. A palette of randomized facial images including the first facial image together with the plurality of additional facial images is presented. Access is denied unless the correct facial image is selected.


A method and apparatus for accessing a graph database having nodes and relationships describing an organization. An interface in a computer system receives a request from a client to access information about the organization. Further, the interface in the computer system retrieves the information from the graph database having nodes and relationships describing the organization. Still further, the interface in the computer system sends a portion of the information to the client based on how much of the information is displayable by the client.

RESCCUE aims to deliver a framework enabling city resilience assessment, planning and management by integrating into software tools new knowledge related to the detailed water-centred modelling of strategic urban services performance into a comprehensive resilience platform. These tools will assess urban resilience from a multisectorial approach, for current and future climate change scenarios and including multiple hazards. The project will review and integrate in the general framework existing options to assess climate change impacts and urban systems vulnerabilities allowing to assess multisectorial dependencies under multiple climate change scenarios. An adaptation strategies portfolio, including climate services, ecosystem-based approaches and resource efficiency measures will be incorporated as key components of the deployment strategy. The possible approaches will be ranked by their cost-efficiency in terms of CAPEX and OPEX to evaluate their benefits potential. This will enable city managers and urban system operators deciding the optimal investments to cope with future situations. The validation platform is formed by 3 EU cities (Barcelona, Lisboa and Bristol) that will allow testing the innovative tools developed in the project and disseminating their results among other cities belonging to major international networks. In terms of market potential, RESCCUE will generate large potential benefits, in terms of avoided costs during and after emergencies, that will contribute to their large-scale deployment. The structure of the consortium will guarantee the market uptake of the results, as the complete value chain needed is already represented. The project is coordinated by Aquatec, a large consultancy firm part of a multinational company focused on securing and recovering resources, and includes partners from the research domain, operation of critical urban systems, city managers and international organisations devoted to urban resilience.


InteGrids vision is to bridge the gap between citizens, technology and the other players of the energy system. The project will demonstrate how DSOs may enable all stakeholders to actively participate in the energy market and distribution grid management and develop and implement new business models, making use of new data management and consumer involvement approaches. Moreover, the consortium will demonstrate scalable and replicable solutions in an integrated environment that enables DSOs to plan and operate the network with a high share of DRES in a stable, secure and economic way, using flexibility inherently offered by specific technologies and by interaction with different stakeholders. To achieve these objectives, a complementary partnership covering the distribution system value chain has been established. The consortium includes three DSOs from different countries and their retailers, innovative ICT companies and equipment manufacturers as well as customers, a start-up in the area of community engagement and excellent R&D institutions. InteGrids concepts and approaches are based on the these two elements: 1. the role of the DSO as system optimiser and as market facilitator and 2. the integration of existing demonstration activities in three different regions allowing to move from single solutions to an integrated management at a higher scale while focusing on the scalability and replicability considering current and evolving market (and regulatory) conditions. The three conceptual pillars proactive operational planning with DER, business models for flexible DER, information exchange between different power system actors offer an opportunity to maximize the economic, societal and environmental gains from the combined integration of DRES and flexible DER. A market hub platform coupled with smart grid functions and innovative business models will open opportunities for new services and an effective roll-out of emerging technologies in the short-term.
