Application: System and method for managing document metadata (Patent ID: US20230325429A1)

The patent filed by The Toronto-Dominion Bank describes a system, server device, and method for managing document metadata. The method involves storing metadata in a graph separate from associated documents, connecting metadata in the graph hierarchically, and dynamically updating the graph based on instructions without accessing the associated documents. The server device enables interaction with stored metadata, responds to inquiries related to documents by navigating the graph, and incorporates taxonomy updates into the hierarchical structure without accessing documentation.

The server device further includes features such as an enterprise application programming interface layer for managing access to data storage elements, accessing both transactional and archive storage containers, and interfacing with a cloud-based computing service layer. Additionally, the method involves determining ratings for graph edges based on importance or frequency of use, adding new metadata features by adding edges to the graph, and updating the taxonomy based on dynamic relationships within accessed documents. The computer-readable medium provided stores instructions for storing, classifying, connecting, and enabling interaction with metadata in a graph structure, emphasizing the hierarchical organization and dynamic updating capabilities of the system.
