US patent: US11550799B2
Title: Method and system for retrieving and displaying data from an entity network database
Abstract: A computer-implemented method of retrieving and displaying data from an entity network database comprising a plurality of entities and a plurality of relationships between the entities is provided. The method comprises receiving a selection of a plurality of anchor entities of the entity network database; retrieving a plurality of connector entities of the entity network database, each connector entity disposed on a path in the entity network database extending between at least two of the anchor entities; determining a relevance score for each of the connector entities, the relevance score reflecting the relevance of each connector entity to the anchor entities; and displaying the connector entities within a shape defined by the anchor entities, wherein the distance of each connector entity from the anchor entities is based on the relevance score of the connector entity.
