Xerox Corporation is an American multinational document management corporation that produces and sells a range of color and black-and-white printers, multifunction systems, photocopiers, digital production printing presses, and related consulting services and supplies. Xerox is headquartered in Norwalk, Connecticut , though its largest population of employees is based around Rochester, New York, the area in which the company was founded. On September 28, 2009, Xerox announced the intended acquisition of Affiliated Computer Services for $6.4 billion. The deal closed on February 8, 2010. As a large developed company, it is consistently placed in the list of Fortune 500 companies.Researchers at Xerox and its Palo Alto Research Center invented several important elements of personal computing, such as the desktop metaphor GUI, the computer mouse and desktop computing. These features were frowned upon by the then board of directors, who ordered the Xerox engineers to share them with Apple technicians. The features were taken on by Apple and, later, Microsoft. Partly thanks to these features, these two firms would then go on to duopolize the personal computing world. Wikipedia.

A trip-planning method and system employ a user profile for each user which includes the users preferences for each of a plurality of transportation modes, user goals, and optionally user constraints on trips. Inferred user preference (resp. goal) values and stated user preference (resp. goal) values are aggregated using a coefficient which places more emphasis on stated goals/preferences that have been recently set. Candidate itineraries for a requested user trip that meet the users constraints are ranked based on the aggregated goal and preference values and the costs/contributions of each itinerary to the respective goal/preference. A subset of the ranked itineraries may be output to the user for the user to select one for making the trip.


In authentication based on an image region read from a surface of a target object, authentication based on a position corresponding to the image region is executed. An authenticating server 2 receives an image region as an authentication target read from a surface of a target object possessed by a user together with an authentication request from the user, identifies a position corresponding to the image region as the authentication target and one reference image region corresponding to the image region as the authentication target in a plurality of previously stored reference image regions read from respective surfaces of a plurality of target objects, and executes authentication in response to the authentication request based on the identified position.


An information processing system includes a first apparatus and a second apparatus. The first apparatus includes a first transmission unit that transmits, to the second apparatus, a program or feature information for generating an electronic signature and a level thereof, a first reception unit that receives an electronic signature or a program having the electronic signature, and a first addition unit that adds the electronic signature to the program. The second apparatus includes a second reception unit that receives the feature information or the program, and the level, a generation unit that generates an electronic signature, a second addition unit that, when the electronic signature is generated from the program and the level, adds the electronic signature to the program, and a second transmission unit that transmits, to the first apparatus, the electronic signature when the electronic signature is generated from the feature information and the level, and the program when the electronic signature is generated from the program and the level.


A program causing a computer to execute a process for causing at least portions of display screens of plural terminals connected to each other through a network to display information in a synchronous manner, includes receiving material information indicating information regarding a material to be displayed, receiving operation information indicating details of operations that users perform on the respective terminals, and recording minutes information in which the material information, the operation information, and time information indicating times at which the users perform the operations are associated with each other.


An authentication information management system 1 includes a portable information processing terminal 2 that transmits check target authentication information and an authentication information management server 4. The portable information processing terminal 2 includes an activation requesting unit 12 that transmits account identification information used to identify registered authentication information, and the authentication information management server 4 includes an activation performing unit 22 that associates terminal identification information about the portable information processing terminal 2 with the registered authentication information identified using the received account identification information. In response to transmission of check target authentication information, authentication is performed in accordance with whether the transmitted check target authentication information corresponds to the registered authentication information associated with the terminal identification information about the portable information processing terminal 2.

Methods and systems recognize alphanumeric characters in an image by computing individual representations of every character of an alphabet at every character position within a certain word transcription length. These methods and systems embed the individual representations of each alphabet character in a common vectorial subspace (using a matrix) and embed a received image of an alphanumeric word into the common vectorial subspace (using the matrix). Such methods and systems compute the utility value of the embedded alphabet characters at every one of the character positions with respect to the embedded alphanumeric character image; and compute the best transcription alphabet character of every one of the image characters based on the utility value of each embedded alphabet character at each character position. Such methods and systems then assign the best transcription alphabet character for each of the character positions to produce a recognized alphanumeric word within the received image.

Devices have a movable roller (256), a fixed-position roller (252) contacting the movable roller to form an exit nip transporting planar media (232), biasing members (260) operatively connected to the movable roller, and adjusters (262, 264) contacting the movable roller. Such devices are connectable to a first machine (272) or a second machine (270). Contact areas (274) of the first machine hold the adjusters in a first position to position the movable roller in a position resulting in the exit nip transporting the planar media in a first exit direction. The second machine instead has void areas (278) positioned to allow movement of the adjusters to position the movable roller in a position resulting in the exit nip transporting the planar media in a second exit direction different from the first exit direction.


A comparison service provider 400 receives, from each of plural object-related information management servers, image information items representing unique patterns included in surfaces of objects and identification information items of the objects, stores the image information items and the identification information items received by the receiving means, receives from a user device an image information item representing the unique pattern included in the surface of the object, identifies one of the identification information items stored by the storing means based on the image information item received by the user image information receiving means, and transmits to the user device the identification information item identified by the identification information identifying means or a related information item of the object stored in the object-related information management server as related to the identification information item identified.
