No assignee for this patent application, patent application serial number 802740, has been made.
Reporters obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "A replica of data can be kept by apparatuses equivalent to computers, such as personal computer, smart phone, tablet PC, game machines, and hardware controlled by programs. When replicas of such apparatuses are edited in parallel, required is synchronization of them."
In addition to obtaining background information on this patent application, VerticalNews editors also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "Though a word 'data' 0150 is used in various context, the original meaning of data may be an abstract concept. When data has been recorded to a memory device 0104, data 0150 can be manipulated by processes 0105 or procedures 0107, 0110 which run on hardware 0106 handling the memory device 0104. Wherein, the hardware 0106 is equivalent to a processor, such as CPU of a computer, microprocessor, wired logic component, and so on.
"Usually we use phrases 'a memory device has data', 'data have been recoded on a memory device'. These phrases mean the followings. The memory device 0104 has a replica 0101 of the data 0150. A replica 0101 of the data 0150 is recorded on the memory device 0104.
"Though data 0150 is abstract, the replica 0101 is expressed as concrete status of the memory device 0104. The memory device 0104 is a device of keeping a replica 0101 of data 0150. Examples of the memory devices 0104 are main memory (of a computer), HDD (hard disc drive), discs and devices having a capability of keeping a (replica of) data, which can be read and/or be written (or be updated) by hardware.
"The hardware equivalent to processors 0106, which is called processor device, can implement processes 0105 or procedures of various functions including a function handling replica 0102 recorded on memory devices 0104. Examples of the processor device are processor unit of a computer, processor embedded in a hardware, wired logic constructed to implement a process or procedure, and equivalent hardware. Some processor device simultaneously performs plural processes and plural procedures. Single process on an operating system can implement plural number of threads, each of which can implement plural number of procedures. Plural threads of plural processes of plural processor can implement procedures of the present invention, when each thread, process or processor can access the replica 0101 directly or indirectly by supports of other threads, processes or hardware.
"The present invention is to synchronize replicas 0101, 0121 of data 0150, which have been recorded on memory devices 0104, 0124 and have been edited in parallel. Explained are (1) methods handling a replica on memory device, (2) systems comprising of memory devices which contain replicas, and (3) systems comprising of devices equivalent to processors handling replicas. The methods and a component of the systems contain plural procedures directly or contain a process containing plural procedures.
