The point is just what was said. If it's in use it's a part of the bigger picture, including use of some of the factors being among the "over 100 factors" that have already been in use. This is a sophisticated and innovative process to be sure, but it's founded on technologies that are its predecessors, some common in IR for a number of years. That can be clearly seen by the language, terminology and concepts being described.
But now let me answer your question with a question:
Have you discerned and recognized the basic, classic IR technologies that underlie this group of apps and that preceded it?
