Intelligent File Location Management Based on Data Mining

File sharing systems and structures allow users to work in an open environment in which authorized users can easily store, access, and distribute files. However, correctly storing (i.e., to the correct network), maintaining, replicating offline, etc. these files can be a manual and tedious process for the human user. In addition, separate processes and tools are required for maintaining membership of the Access Control List (ACL) and the authority levels of the members.

A system and method are needed that can utilize the available advanced cognitive technologies to create a more efficient file sharing system.

The novel contribution is a system and method that can dynamically relocate/move files from various communication media (e.g., email, chat, text, etc.) to the final file destination per the receiver's preference, based on data mining and cognitive assessment. In addition to moving the file, the system can dynamically change the file name structure to comply with the receiver's preferred naming convention. Further, the system can include in its confidence ranking and evaluation the access control for different destinations.

This system improves consistency and efficiency in file management.

If more than one receiver of the file and common storage (destinations) are used, then the system can determine the primary recipient based on several characteristics (e.g., project usage, ownership, sharing, editing, seniority, etc.). An associated cognitive system runs in the background and ingests communication in different modes for analysis from a user.

An agent also runs in the background that scans and detects files that are sent to a user through different media (e.g., email, chat, group chat, etc.).

When an agent detects that an incoming communication contains a file attachment, it brings in the cognitive system to perform a series of analyses to determine the best storage location for the attachment. The analysis can include (but is not limited to):


 Sender's relationship to the recipient


 Size of the distribution (e.g., in an email, this is found in the To: field)


 Importance of the atta...
