  • Publication number: 20190214013
    Abstract: A web server system identifies a webpage being accessed by a user through a client terminal. The webpage is among a set of possible webpages that are accessible through the client terminal. Different identifiers are assigned to different ones of the webpages. Responsive to the identifier of the webpage, a set of user interface (UI) input field constraints is selected that define what the webpage allows to be input by a user to a set of UI fields provided by the webpage. An output text string is obtained that is converted from a sampled audio steam by a speech-to-text conversion server and that is constrained to satisfy one of the UI field input constraints of the selected set. The output text string is provided to an application programming interface of the webpage that corresponds to one of the UI fields having user input constrained by the UI field input constraint of the selected set.

  • Patent number: 10346450
    Abstract: In a datacenter setting, annotations or descriptions of relevant parts or subgraphs corresponding to components in the datacenter are predicted. Given a set of training data (library of subgraphs seen in the past labeled with a textual description explaining why were they considered relevant enough to be placed in the historical database), the recurrent neural network (RNN) learns how to combine the different textual annotations coming from each relevant region into a single annotation that describes the whole system. Accordingly, given a set of input or test data (datacenter state modeled a context graph that is not annotated), the system determines which regions of the input graph are more relevant, and for each of these regions, the RNN predicts an annotation even in a previously unseen or different datacenter infrastructure.

  • Patent number: 10348799
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to unique device authentication via browser. In one embodiment, a server computer system receives, from a browser program executing on a client computer system, a request to authenticate to a private network. The server computer system causes a script to be downloaded to the client computer system, the script being executable by the browser program to establish a connection with a local host program executing on the client computer system. The server computer system receives, from the browser program, authentication information that is based on communication between the browser program and the local host program over the connection. The server computer system may then perform a process responsive to the request to authenticate the client computer system to the private network using the received authentication information. In some embodiments, the authentication information includes an identifier that uniquely identifies the client computer system within the private network.

  • Patent number: 10339334
    Abstract: Aspects of the embodiments are directed to an augmented reality Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart (“captcha”). Upon determining that a user, operating a user device, is attempting to access a website, a host server can cause a camera on the user device to activate and begin streaming and image feed to the host device across a network. The host device can determine an appropriate augmentation to the image feed that is germane to the context and/or environment of what is being displayed in the image feed. The augmentation can be displayed to the user on a display of the user device. The augmentation can also include a prompt instructing the user how to interact with the augmentation. The host server can determine whether to grant the user access based on the user's interaction with the augmentation.

  • Patent number: 10339007
    Abstract: A pattern of configuration settings to be implemented for a service model corresponding to a system of IT resources is received from a UI. Commands are issued to the IT resources that correspond to configuration items included in the selected pattern to modify configuration settings. When a configuration change resulting from the commands is identified, a current configuration of the service model is compared to a previous configuration to identify modified configuration settings. In response to determining, based on a system performance indicator, improved system performance, the identified modified configuration settings are stored as a candidate pattern in a pattern database. A performance violation is identified for the system and the pattern database is queried to retrieve the candidate pattern including the group of configuration settings.

  • Patent number: 10339039
    Abstract: A virtualization request is identified to initiate a virtualized transaction involving a first software component and a virtual service simulating a second software component. A reference within the first software component to the second software component is determined, using a plugin installed on the first software component, that is to be used by the first software component to determine a first network location of the second software component. A second network location of a system to host the virtual service is determined and the reference is changed, using the plugin, to direct communications of the first software component to the second network location instead of the first network location responsive to the virtualization request.

  • Patent number: 10331440
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method is disclosed which detects that new source code linked to a defect identifier has been checked in to a source code repository for a given code branch of a software application. The new source code is automatically checked in to additional code branches of the software application based on the defect identifier. For each additional code branch into which the new source code is automatically checked in, code coverage metrics are determined which indicate an extent to which application source code of the code branch is tested by its corresponding test case source code before and after the automatic check in. If a difference between the code coverage metrics indicates that code coverage for the code branch has decreased by more than a predefined threshold, a notification is transmitted that indicates a test case deficiency for the code branch.
