What is a Patent for Method, system, and computer program for performing outsourced computing that is distributed
A system, method and computer program products are available for performing distributed outsourced computing. A master node in the general distributed computing cluster manages the computing resources of the network. The master node is a part of the general distributed computing cluster. There are also slave nodes. The master node is the one that determines if computing resources are available on one or more of slave nodes. The master node determines if computing resources are available and identifies the slave nodes as an additional master node. Further the master node posts information related to one or more unfinished computing tasks assigned to the master node to the blockchain to allow access by the one or more of slave nodes to process.
Computing resources dedicated to solving the problem in question are limited and are expensive to scale. But, computing power in general (e.g. even in house, such as employees’ work stations, mobile devices, etc.) is enormous.
Distributed systems within enterprises currently execute large amounts of in-house computations on dedicated hardware resources. Hardware scaling makes this procedure prohibitive for day-to- daily maintenance of IT resources such as power, electricity and hardware costs, and network usage.
Once there is a need to increase the size of a cluster, the business purchases new equipment, configures it, and connects the new computing resource to the existing cluster. But, the majority of employees’ workstations are underutilized as less than 60% of their computing power is utilized.
The issues mentioned above and others are dealt with.
The method, system and computer program product that support distributed outsourced computing are explained. A master node of a general distributed computing cluster is responsible for managing computing resources in the network. The general distributed computing cluster comprises the master node and many slave nodes. The master node determines whether computing resources are accessible at any of the slave nodes. If resources for computing are in use the master node will recognize the slave nodes as an additional master node. The master node also publishes details about the unfinished computing tasks that it has assigned to it for the use of one or more of the slave nodes in the plurality.

What is a patent?
Granted by the government to safeguard an invention, patents give the inventor with exclusive rights to create, use to sell, and promote the invention?society benefits when a new technology is brought to the market. The benefits can be in the direct sense, since it can allow people to do previously impossible things. Or indirectly, through the economic opportunities (business expansion and job creation) that the innovation offers.
Many drug firms and university researchers are seeking patent protection for their research and development. Patents may cover the physical or abstract nature of a product or process, or an approach or composition of materials that are new to the field. Patent protection has to be granted to any invention that is valuable or novel and is not yet known by other people in the same area.
Patents reward inventors who have commercially viable inventions. They provide a reason for inventors to create. Small companies and inventors can be certain that they will receive the most return from the investment they make in technology advancement through patents. They could earn a decent income through their work.
Businesses that have the capacity to:
Secure innovative products and services;
Improve the value, the popularity, and appeal of your products market
Stand out and differentiate yourself and your product from the rest.
Access to business and technical knowledge and information;
Beware of the possibility of accidentally using third-party proprietary content, or losing your important information, creative outputs, or another creative output.
Patents transform inventor’s knowledge into an asset that can be sold, that opens new avenues to create jobs through licensing and joint ventures.
Investors in the development and commercialization of technology will appreciate small-scale businesses that have patent protection to be more attractive.
Patents can help develop new ideas and inventions. These information may be eligible for patent protection.
Patents can be used to serve as a deterrent to untrustworthy third parties that profit from an invention’s efforts.
Commercially successful patent-protected technology revenues can be used to fund technological research and development (R&D) and improve the chances of developing better technology in the near future.
You can leverage intellectual property ownership to convince investors and lenders that your product has commercial potential. One powerful patent may provide multiple financing opportunities. Patents can be used along with other IP assets as collateral or security to secure financing. Investors can also see your patent assets in order to boost the value of their company. Forbes and other publications have pointed out that every patent can boost company valuation by anywhere from $500,000 to $1 Million.
A solid business plan that is well-designed is crucial for start-ups. It should be based on IP and explain what your service or product is distinctive. Investors are also impressed if you have IP rights are secure or are in the process of being secured and if they are supportive of your business plan.
It is crucial to keep your invention secret until you apply for patent protection. The public disclosure of an invention prior to filing can frequently degrade its originality and make it patent-infringing. Pre-filing disclosures, such as for investors, test-marketing or any other business partners, must be done after signing a confidentiality contract.
There are a variety of patents, and understanding these is vital to safeguard your invention. Utility patents are for inventions and processes that are new. Design patents cover ornamental designs. Utility patents are the most effective to protect the proprietor from copycats and other competitors. They are typically granted to enhance or modify existing inventions. Utility patents can also be used to enhance or alter existing inventions. A process patent could describe the methods or actions to perform a specific action. However, a chemical composition will include the combination of ingredients.
What is the length average of patents? Patents that are utility-related last for 20 years from the initial filing date, but their expiration dates can be extended due to delays at the patent office for instance.
Are you looking to patent your ideas? Patents are granted only to the first-to-file applicants which is why you must file as quickly as possible. Contact PatentPC today to file your patent application approved!
When drafting an application for patents when you are writing a patent application, it is important to conduct a patent search, as the search can provide an insight into the other applicants’ thoughts. This will allow you to restrict the extent of your invention. Also, you can find out about the latest developments in your area of invention. You’ll get a better understanding of what your idea should be and be better prepared for writing the patent application.
How to Search for Patents
Patent searches are the very first step towards obtaining your patent. You can do a google patent search or do a USPTO search. Patent-pending is the term for the product that has been included in the patent application. You can search the public pair to locate the patent application. After the patent office approves your application, you will be able do a patent number search to find the patent issued. Your product now has the potential to be patentable. It is also possible to use the USPTO search engine. Read on for more details. A patent lawyer or attorney can advise you on the process. In the US patents are issued by the US patent and trademark office or the United States patent and trademark office, which is also responsible for examining trademark applications.
Are you interested in finding similar patents? These are the steps you should follow:
1. Create a list of terms for your invention according to its function and composition or use.
Write down a concise and precise description of the invention. Do not use generic terms such as “device,” “process,” and “system.” Instead, think about synonyms for the terms you initially chose. Then, take note of important technical terms and key words.
To help you find terms and keywords, you can use the following questions.
- What is the goal of the invention Is it a utilitarian device or an ornamental design?
- Is inventing a method to create something or perform an action? Are you referring to a product?
- What is the purpose and composition of the invention? What is the invention’s physical composition?
- What’s the purpose of this invention?
- What are the terms in the technical field and keywords that describe an invention’s nature? To find the right terms, refer to a technical dictionary.
2. These terms will allow you to find pertinent Cooperative Patent Classifications using the Classification Search Tool. If you are unable to find the correct classification to describe your invention through the class Schemas (class schedules) and then try again. You may want to consider substituting the terms you’re using for describing your invention, if you do not get any results from the Classification Text Search with synonyms such as the terms you used in step 1.
3. Examine 3. Check the CPC Classification Definition for confirmation of the CPC classification you found. If the classification you have selected includes a blue square with a “D” to its left, clicking on the hyperlink will take you to the CPC classification definition. CPC classification definitions can help determine the relevant classification’s scope and therefore you’re sure to select the most appropriate. These definitions may also include search tips or other suggestions which could prove useful in further study.
4. The Patents Full-Text Database and the Image Database allow you to retrieve patent documents that include the CPC classification. You can look through and select the relevant patent documents by looking first at abstract and drawings representative of.
5. This collection of patent publication is the most appropriate to examine for connections with your invention. Pay close attention to the claims and specifications. There are many patents available through contacting the patent examiner as well as the applicant.
6. Retrieve published patent applications with the CPC classification you selected in Step 3 of the Applications Full-Text and Image Database. It is possible to use the same search strategy as in Step 4. You can narrow your results to the most pertinent patent application by examining the abstract and drawings that appear on each page. The next step is to review every patent application that has been published with care with particular attention paid to the claims as well as other drawings.
7. You can find other US patent publications using keywords searching in AppFT or PatFT databases, and also search for patents classified as that are not issued by the United States according to below. You can also make use of search engines on the internet to search for non-patent-related patent disclosures in literature about inventions. Examples:
- Add keywords to your search. Keyword searches may turn up documents that are not well-categorized or have missed classifications during Step 2. For example, US patent examiners often supplement their classification searches with keyword searches. Think about the use of technical engineering terminology rather than everyday words.
- Search for foreign patents using the CPC classification. Then, re-run the search using international patent office search engines such as Espacenet, the European Patent Office’s worldwide patent publication database of over 130 million patent publications. Other national databases include:
- European Patent Office (EPO) provides esp@cenet to access a network of Europe’s patent databases with access to machine translation of European patents.
- Japan Patent Office (JPO) – with access to machine translations of Japanese patents.
- World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) offers PATENTSCOPE with a full-text search of published international patent applications and machine translations for some documents, as well as a list of international patent databases.
- Korean Intellectual Property Rights Information Service (KIPRIS)
- State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) with machine translation of Chinese patents.
- Other International Intellectual Property Offices with online patent databases include Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, India, Israel, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and Taiwan.
- Search non-patent literature. Inventions can be made public in many non-patent publications. It is recommended that you search journals, books, websites, technical catalogs, conference proceedings, and other print and electronic publications.
To review your search, you can hire a registered patent attorney to assist. A preliminary search will help one better prepare to talk about their invention and other related inventions with a professional patent attorney. In addition, the attorney will not spend too much time or money on patenting basics.
