Purpose of the invention is to efficiently converge opinions of participants of an electronic conference system. A database registering vocabulary and representative words corresponding thereto, a vocabulary converging means for converting information inputted from a terminal into the representative words with reference to the database, and a means for totalizing the number of representative words converted by the vocabulary converging means are implemented in the electronic conference system. The invention is applied to a large scale or small scale electronic conference.

Description

 TECHNICAL FIELD The present invention relates to an electronic conference system using one network and a plurality of terminals connected to the network, and more particularly to an opinion aggregation system that converges an organization's consciousness to one opinion. BACKGROUND ART Conventional electronic conference systems include a means for counting and totalize the intentions of participants in real time. (Japanese Patent No. 6-0 4 6 0 5 5)

 Although it is not an electronic conference system, there is a technology that converts the collected vocabulary into representative words. (Japanese Patent 'Publication No. 9 1 2 6 9 9 3 8)

As a conventional technology, for example, a representative employee of a company can obtain a consensus of all employees regarding management policies. Employees were gathered at one meeting place and had a presentation and a dialogue with questions and answers. In large-scale cases, one-way communication was performed through in-house broadcasting. However, with these measures, it is often the case that the degree of persuasion for each employee is not known, and in fact it often results in a low consensus meeting.

Also, according to the electronic conference system described in Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. 6-0 4 6 0 5 5, the participants of the conference vote their opinions, and the results are instantaneously compiled by the host computer. The result was shared by all participants through the terminal. However, the scope of the aggregation technique described in the above-mentioned patent document has been limited to the collection of quantitative values such as the percentage of approval and disapproval and the average of evaluation values for projects. For this reason, it is possible to register and view questions and reasons for disagreement as messages, but since there is no means to aggregate them, it is impossible to grasp these opinions in real time in a meeting with a large number of people. there were. For this reason, the meeting was prolonged for the purpose of gathering opinions, and the meeting was terminated without fully drawing in opposition. As means for solving the problems of the background art, a plurality of terminals capable of inputting and displaying information, a network connecting the terminals, input information from the terminals connected to the network via the network, and the like. Prepare an electronic conference system consisting of a server that stores, processes, and provides processed information for the terminal, and stores a database in which the vocabulary and corresponding representative words are registered, and the terminal In the present invention, a vocabulary converging means for converting information input from the database into a representative word with reference to the database and a totaling means for aggregating the number of representative words converted by the vocabulary converging means are implemented. Participants follow the moderator's instructions and enter the word of pros and cons and the objection in the terminal. Participants also have 8 question choices and a catch-up vocabulary of “Wh”, “What”, “When”, “Who”, “Where”, “How”, “How match”, etc. Enter one word at any time on the terminal.

The input information input from these terminals is temporarily stored in the memory or hard disk in the server, but the input information is read by the vocabulary converging means in the server, and the vocabulary converging means Database with vocabulary and corresponding representative words registered in advance , The opposite reason and auxiliary vocabulary in the input information are converted into the representative words linked to it, and the result is transferred to the counting means as converted information.

 In the aggregation means, the converted information is obtained from the vocabulary convergence means, and the number of representative words and the percentage of the total are summed up for each pros and cons or for each question choice, and the results are stored in the server memory as aggregate information. Or store it in the hard disk. Furthermore, the server provides the aggregate information to each terminal.

These actions make it possible to add to the real dime whether the participants in the meeting are disagreeing or disagreeing. As a result, it becomes possible for the moderator of the meeting to explain these reasons and questions again, and by repeating the above-mentioned counting work and explanations, all the participants will eventually be explained. It is possible to end the conference with consensus. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS FIG. 1 is a diagram showing the configuration of the best embodiment of the present invention.

 Network 3 is a corporate LAN (Local Area Network) and communicates using TCP / IP (Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol).

 Server 4 is a computer composed of a server body, a keyboard, and a display. The server body consists of a physical interface, CPU (Central Processing Unit), memory, hard disk, path, and path controller for connecting to network 3, and the OS (: Application software for electronic conferencing that installs (Operating System) on the OS and performs communication and information processing with each terminal on the network 3 is installed.

Fig. 2 shows the configuration of the application software for teleconference installed in the server 4 of the present invention. In FIG. 2, 5 is a communication buffer, 6 is an information reading routine, 7 is It is a group of information storage variables, 8 is a vocabulary convergence routine, 9 is a database, 10 is an aggregation routine, and 11 is an information provision routine.

 The communication buffer 5 temporarily stores the input information received from each terminal via the network 3, notifies the information reading routine 6 of the arrival of the input information, and stores the input information temporarily stored according to the instructions of the information reading routine 6. Pass to read routine 6. The communication buffer 5 temporarily stores the output information provided by the information providing routine 11 and provides the output information to all terminals via the network 3 in cooperation with the OS.

 The information reading routine 6 decomposes and processes the input information received from the communication buffer 5 and writes it as a processed input information to a specific variable in the information storage variable group 7. The information reading routine 6 directly provides a part of the processed input information to the information providing routine 11.

 The information storage variable group 7 is a collection of variables prepared in advance to store various types of information. Non-volatile φ variables and variables that can be erased by reading the information even if information is read and FIF : First-In First-Out) variables.

The vocabulary converging routine 8 uses a specific variable in the information storage variable group 7 Monitored, when processed input information is written in the variable, fetch the processed input information and refer to the information in the database 9 to convert a part of the processed input information into a representative word Then, it is written to a specific variable in the information storage variable group 7 as converted information.

 The database 9 is a set of tables describing information necessary for converting the processed input information into the converted information, and includes a first deletion table, a second deletion table, and a convergence table.

The aggregation routine 10 monitors a specific variable in the information storage variable group 7 and, if the converted information is written in the variable, takes the converted information, and further combines the vocabulary and the corresponding count. If the statistical variable in the information storage variable group Ί is read and there is a vocabulary included in the statistical variable in the converted information, 1 is added to the count of the statistical variable corresponding to the vocabulary as new aggregate information Write the added value, and if there is a vocabulary that is not included in the statistical variable in the converted information, add the vocabulary and the corresponding count (the initial value of the count is 1) to the new statistical information. Add as In addition, the aggregation routine 10 corresponds to new aggregated information when a specific variable in the information storage variable group 7 has a specific value and the converted information includes a vocabulary included in the statistical variable. The corresponding vocabulary Write the value obtained by subtracting 1 from the count of the total variable.

 The information provision routine 1 1 reads the statistical variables in the information storage variable group 7 based on the processed input information received from the information reading routine 6, classifies the aggregate information stored in the statistical variables into categories, and counts them. Sort in descending order, calculate the percentage corresponding to the count, generate a grab or table image from these aggregate information, and include the vocabulary, the count, the percentage, and the image of the Darada or table Generate a TEXT file described in (: Hyper Text Marku Language), and deliver the TEXT file to the communication buffer 5 as processed total information. The information providing routine 1 1 also processes the processed input information or the specific information in the information storage variable group 7 based on the processed input information received from the information reading routine 6 without processing or processing. Delivered to communication buffer 5 as information for all terminals or a specific terminal.

Figure 3 shows the structure of the first delete table, which is a component of database 9. As shown in Fig. 3, the first deletion table consists of two fields: a registered word field and an expression format field. The registered word field stores the vocabulary to be deleted from the input vocabulary. The field stores the deletion condition format of the vocabulary. "*" In Figure 3 is any sentence longer than .0 characters This means a character string, and "*? *" Means that if the input vocabulary contains "?", The deletion condition is satisfied. In addition, “_” in Figure 3 means a single-byte space, and “The— *” means that if the beginning of the input vocabulary is “The”, the deletion condition for the leading “The” is satisfied. To do.

 Figure 4 shows the structure of the second delete table, which is a component of database 9. As shown in Fig. 4, the second deletion table consists of two fields: a registered word field and an expression field. The registered word field stores the vocabulary to be deleted from the input vocabulary. In the expression format field, the deletion condition format of the vocabulary is stored. "*" In Figure 4 means any string of zero or more characters, and "* Kana" satisfies the deletion condition of "Kana" at the end if the input vocabulary ends with "Kana". Means that. Also, "* s" in Fig. 4 means that if the end of the input vocabulary is "s", the deletion condition of "s" at the end is satisfied.

Figure 5 shows the structure of the convergence table, which is a component of database 9. As shown in Fig. 5, the convergence table is composed of one representative word field and multiple similar word fields. Representative words are stored in the representative word field, and representative words are stored in the similar word field. Stores similar words associated with a word. Figure 5 shows that "late," stored in the representative word field is stored in the similar word field. It is a representative of “slow” and “slow”. FIG. 5 shows that “risk” stored in the representative word field is a representative word of “risky” and “riskiness” stored in the similar word field.

Figure 6 shows a flowchart of the vocabulary convergence routine 8. The first delete table process in FIG. 6 reads processed input information from a specific variable in the information storage variable group 7 and extracts an input vocabulary from the processed input information. Read the deletion table, compare the deletion condition format of the first deletion table with the format of the input vocabulary, and if the deletion condition format of the first deletion table matches the format of the input vocabulary The vocabulary is deleted from the input vocabulary, the deletion process described above is performed for all the levels in the first deletion table, and the input vocabulary after the deletion process is used as the first deleted input vocabulary as an information storage variable. Store in a specific variable in group 7. The second delete table processing in Fig. 6 reads the first deleted input vocabulary from a specific variable in the information storage variable group 7 內, while reading the second delete table from database 9 and deletes the second delete table. Compare the format of the condition with the format of the first deleted input vocabulary, and if the format of the deletion condition of the second deleted table matches the format of the first deleted input vocabulary, Delete from deleted input vocabulary W

12

 Is deleted for all records in the second deletion table, and the first deleted input vocabulary after the deletion processing is stored as a second deleted input vocabulary in a specific variable in the information storage variable group 7. To do. The convergence table processing in Fig. 6 reads the first deleted input vocabulary or the second deleted input vocabulary stored in a specific variable of the information storage variable group 7 內, while reading the convergence table from database 9. A representative word stored in the representative word field in the convergence table or a similar word stored in the similar word field in the convergence table and the first deleted input vocabulary or the second deleted input vocabulary If the two match, the corresponding representative word is stored as a representative word in a specific variable in the information storage variable group 7, and “1” is written to the hit variable in the information storage variable-static 7. When all the results of comparison processing for all records in the convergence table do not match, “0” is written to the hit variable in the information storage variable group 7. In the representative word 5 output process in Fig. 6, the representative word stored in a specific variable of the information storage variable group 7 內 is written to the variable storing the converted information in the information storage variable group 7. In the input word output process in FIG. 6, the first deleted input vocabulary stored in a specific variable in the information storage variable group 7 is written in the variable storing the converted information in the information storage variable group 7.

As shown in Fig. 6, the vocabulary convergence routine 8 The pull processing is called and the vocabulary registered in the first deletion table is deleted from the input vocabulary, and then the first convergence table processing is executed. As a result, the hit variable in the information storage variable group 7 is “1”. “If so, the representative word output process is called and the representative word detected by the convergence table process is written into a specific variable in the information storage-variable group 7 as converted information. If the hit variable in the information storage variable group 7 is “0”, the second deletion table process is called to delete the vocabulary registered in the second deletion table from the first deleted input vocabulary. The second convergence table processing is executed, and as a result, if it is a hit variable power in the information storage variable group 7, the representative word output processing is called and stored in a specific variable in the information storage variable group 7. The representative word is written in the variable that stores the converted information in the information storage variable group 7 concerned. As a result of the second convergence table processing, if the hit variable power in the information storage variable group 7 is 0, the input word output processing is called, and the first deletion stored in a specific variable in the information storage variable group 7 The completed input vocabulary is written into the variable that stores the converted information of the information storage variable group 7 內.

The operation of the vocabulary convergence routine 8 will be explained using an example. First, if the input vocabulary is "Isn't it?", The first "?" Convergence table processing is performed with “Okay” as the first deleted input vocabulary. Search the table for the same vocabulary that is registered as “loose”. 'If the search result is not the same vocabulary in the convergence table as the result of the search, the second delete table process will be started, and the last “kana” will be deleted from the “loose” and the second “deleted” will be entered. Convergence table processing is executed as a vocabulary, and it is searched whether the same vocabulary as “Slow” is registered in the convergence table. As shown in Fig. 5, since there is a “slow” in the similar word field in the convergence table and the representative word for that vocabulary is “slow”, the vocabulary convergence routine .8 converts the representative word “slow” into the converted information. Information is written to a specific variable in the information storage variable group 7 as information. Whether the input vocabulary skill is “slow” or “slow”, the representative word “slow” is written to the specific variable in the information storage variable group 7 as converted information by the same action.

If the input vocabulary is “The risks”, the first “deleted” table processing that is executed first deletes the first “The”, and “risks” is used as the first deleted input vocabulary. Execute and search whether the same vocabulary as “risks” is registered in the convergence table. As a result of the search, if the same vocabulary as “risks” is not in the convergence table, the second deletion table process is started, “s” at the end of “risks” is deleted, and “risk” is deleted for the second time.歛 Execute table processing and search whether the same vocabulary as “risk” is registered in the convergence table. Converging table Since the vocabulary “risk” exists as a representative word, the vocabulary convergence routine 8 writes the vocabulary “risk” to the specific variable in the information storage variable group 7 as converted information. Whether the input vocabulary is “risty” or “riskiness”, the vocabulary “rk” is written to a specific variable in the information storage variable group 7 as converted information by the same operation. If the input vocabulary is “riskines”, the first deletion table processing is executed first, but there is no corresponding vocabulary, so nothing is deleted and “riskines” is executed as the first deleted input vocabulary. Searches whether the same vocabulary as “ris nes” is registered in the convergence table Result of the search If the same vocabulary as “riskines” is not in the convergence table, the second deletion table processing is started, and “ Delete “s” at the end of “Riskines” and execute “Riskine” as the second deleted input vocabulary, and execute the convergence table processing to search whether the same vocabulary as “riskine” is registered in the convergence table. Since the vocabulary “riskine” does not exist in the 斂 table, the vocabulary collection routine 8 writes the first deleted input vocabulary “riskines” as converted information to a specific variable in the information storage variable group 7.

The actual state of the electronic conference according to the present invention will be described below. First, the screens on the displays of the moderator / explainer terminals 1a and 1b are a file folder screen for copying data files / records from electronic media to the hard disk in the server 4, and messages for participants. It consists of a message writing screen for writing sage and a totaling result display screen that displays the result of totalizing the opinions of each participant.

The screens on the participant terminals 2 a and 2 b and 2 c display a message display screen that displays a message from the moderator or the explainer, and a word for uploading a word of approval or disapproval. Upload one word of voting screen, 8 questions and auxiliary vocabulary of "Why", "What", "When", "Who", "Where", "How", 'How match "and" How long " And a totaling result display screen that displays the results of collecting the opinions of each participant The voting screens on the terminals 2 a, 2 b, and 2 c for participants select exclusive approval or disapproval It consists of a selection button to select, an opposite reason input to enter one word of the anti-opposite reason, and a voting button to upload the information to the server. The question screens in b and 2c are "Why", "What", "When", "Who", and "Where". , How ", 'How match", and How long ", a question selection button for exclusively selecting eight questions, and an auxiliary vocabulary entry for entering one word of auxiliary vocabulary to capture the question contents Column, a question button for uploading these entries to server 4 as new question contents, and a question selection menu for selectively displaying the previous question contents, and the previous question by convincing Assent to withdraw It consists of potan.

 The electronic conference according to the present invention proceeds in a form in which a moderator or an explainer interacts with participants through a terminal. First, the moderator explains the purpose of the meeting to each participant through voice, and explains the details of the meeting according to the agenda. At this time, if necessary, the data file registered in the server 4 is used for explanation, and a catch message is written on the message writing screen and distributed to the participants. If there is a question about the contents of the explanation, the participant selects the question selection button on the question screen. If necessary, enters the assisting vocabulary into the one-word auxiliary vocabulary entry field and presses the question button. The contents of the questions uploaded from each participant are aggregated by the electronic conference application software in the server 4, and the aggregated results are immediately displayed on the aggregated result display screen of each terminal. The moderator can grasp the current question points of each participant in real time by looking at the total results of the questions on the total result display screen. Request additional explanation from the respondent.

In this way, the moderator tries to answer each participant's question while explaining, but if he wants to know the details of the question, he / she can ask a more detailed question to the participant who has a specific question. Please fill in the reason input field opposite to the voting screen and upload it. up The questions of the loaded details are counted as an opposite reason by the application software for electronic conferencing in the server 4, and the result is immediately displayed on the total result display screen of each terminal. By repeating this, the moderator can know the details of the question.

 Participants hear the supplementary explanation of the moderator or the explainer, and when the question is resolved, select the previous question from the question selection menu on the question screen and press the consent button. By pressing the consent button, a specific flag indicating the content of the question and the satisfaction uploaded before the participant terminal 2—a, 2b, or 2c is uploaded to the server 4. When the application software for teleconferencing in server 4 receives a specific flag indicating convincing, it reads the statistical variables in information storage variable group 7 and counts the vocabulary corresponding to the previously updated question. The value is decremented by 1 and immediately displayed on the tabulation result display screen of each terminal as new tabulation information.

Once all of these questions have been repeated and all questions have been resolved, the moderator calls for participation. In response to this call, the participant selects the pros and cons selection button on the voting screen. If not, enter one word in the negative reason input field and press the vote button. The uploaded pros and cons are disaggregated by the teleconferencing application software in Server 4, and the results are immediately Is displayed on the total result display screen of each terminal. If there are opponents, the moderator will provide further explanations with reference to the aggregate results of the reasons for opposition.

 If you want to know the details of the reason for disagreement, please upload a more detailed reason for disagreement in the Opportunity Input field on the voting screen for participants with a specific objection reason. The reasons for the uploaded details are aggregated by the abbreviation software for electronic conferences in Server 4, and the aggregated results are immediately displayed on the aggregated result display screen of each terminal.

 By repeating this, the presenter can find out more about the reasons for disagreement, and can make more detailed explanations and corrections of opinions. Through these dialogues, the number of dissenters will decrease, and finally it will be possible to reach a high-consensus conclusion. INDUSTRIAL APPLICABILITY The present invention is effective for gathering opinions at large-scale meetings, but since anonymity is increased by collecting the opinions of participants, small-scale meetings that seek frank exchange of opinions Is also effective.
