  • Publication number: 20220222539
    Abstract: A first machine learning model may be trained to generate a first representation of a first user data having private attributes and non-private attributes. The first representation may be generated to achieve a focal entropy by maximizing an entropy amongst similar private attributes. The first representation to preserve information associated with the non-private attributes but omit information associated with the private attributes. Moreover, the first user data may be classified based on a target portion of the first representation including the non-private attributes but not the residual portion of the first representation including the private attributes. The trained first machine learning model may be applied to generate a second representation of a second user data such that downstream tasks may be performed by applying a second machine learning model to the second representation of the second user data. Related systems and computer program products are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20220222108
    Abstract: Techniques and solutions are described for implementing virtual domains. Computing resources in a computing environment are determined and assigned to one or more virtual domains. One or more data structures can be located in a given virtual domain. The computing resources assigned to a virtual domain can be dynamically reconfigured without affecting processes that submit tasks to be performed on data structures in the virtual domains. Tasks can be submitted to a dispatcher, which can determine the appropriate virtual domain for the task and forward the task to the determined virtual domain. Tasks are received by virtual domains and assigned to worker threads, which can access a data structure specified for a given task.

  • Patent number: 11386062
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to computer-implemented methods, software, and systems for generating a hierarchy of metadata tables for a database comprising containers including tables. The tables are identified by table names and assigned to containers. A first table is assigned to two containers and may define two table instances of the first table. The hierarchy of metadata tables includes a first metadata table defining mappings between container identifiers, table names, table sections, and unique identifiers for corresponding data within table sections of table instances defined with the table names mapped to the container identifiers. In response to receiving a request to generate a replication of table content, a second metadata table is generated to identify a unique set of table instances from the set of the containers based on evaluating the first metadata table. The unique set of table instances comprises data from the database storage without repetition.

  • Patent number: 11386082
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, method, and computer program product embodiments for providing paged and compressed storage for column data, while maintaining existing access mechanisms for the data. In order to reduce an in-memory footprint for column data, columns may be stored in pageable format using page chains, and only those pages of the column data needed to resolve a query will be placed in memory, and evicted from memory when no longer needed. In order to further reduce the footprint for these columns, compression can be applied, and the compressed column data stored in the same pageable format using page chains. The compressed data includes a plurality of vectors, each of which is converted into pages and stored on the page chain with the others so that they can be efficiently retrieved during database retrieval operations.

  • Patent number: 11386104
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system and method for improving database memory consumption and performance using compression of time stamp columns. A number of time stamps of a time series is received. The time stamps have a start time, and are separated by an equal increment of time that defines an interval. The start time and interval are stored in a dictionary of a column store of a database. An index is generated in the column store of the database, the index having a number of index vectors. Using the index vectors, each time stamp of the number of time stamps can be calculated from the start time stored in the dictionary and the position in the time series based on the interval stored in the dictionary.

  • Patent number: 11379500
    Abstract: Technologies are described for performing automated data integration, reconciliation, and/or self-healing using machine learning. For example, data integration can be checked using a reconciliation procedure. The number of times that the reconciliation is performed can be determined dynamically by a machine learning model. For each iteration, reconciliation can be performed to check integrated data against source data. If any reconciliation errors are found, then self-healing operations can be performed. Results of the reconciliation can be output. The reconciliation results can be used to update the machine learning model so that the machine learning model can dynamically adjust the number of iterations to perform based at least in part on reconciliation results.

  • Patent number: 11379477
    Abstract: A computer system is configured to provide a database system. The computer system comprises one or more processors, a primary database system implemented by the one or more processors, and a secondary database system implemented by the one or more processors. The secondary database system is configured as a hot-standby system for the primary database system. The secondary database system is capable of providing at least a minimum amount of essential functionality of the primary database system during a disruption to the primary database system. The primary database system is configured by programming instructions, executable on the computer system, to cause the one or more processors to determine from a query request from a client application directed to the primary database system that workload from a query may be shifted to the secondary database system and selectively instruct the client application to direct the secondary database system to execute the query based on a per-table calculated result lag.
