Representative Claim

  1. A method for providing an empirical model of a defined space comprising steps of:defining the desired space;describing at least a portion of the defined space with multiple correlated dimensions;

    reducing the dimensionality of the described portion;

    combining the described portion with the remaining portion of the defined space;

    creating a hypothetical model of the defined space; and

    calculating coefficients for the hypothetical model according to an analysis of real and/or or virtual objects.

Posture:

Appeal from examiner 101 rejection.

Abstract Idea: No

In other words, the method of claim 1 requires performing an analysis of objects, either actual or virtual, and calculating coefficients for the model based upon that analysis. We find that these steps are  sufficiently concrete as to set them outside the broad definition of abstract idea as set forth in Alice.
