  • Patent number: 11991037
    Abstract: A device may receive alarm data identifying alarms associated with an occurrence of an event, and may identify, from the alarm data, a set of alarms that include false positives. The device may perform feature engineering on the set of alarms to extract features from a feature store and may train a model with the features to generate a trained model. The device may process the alarm data, with the trained model, to determine rules for reducing a quantity of future alarms that include the false positives, and may identify, from the rules for reducing the quantity of future alarms, a set of rules that satisfy a threshold for reducing the quantity of future alarms. The device may perform one or more actions based on the set of rules.

  • Patent number: 11991663
    Abstract: A method for paging priority and wireless access which includes receiving, at a base station and from a core network, a paging message associated with a priority connection from a first user equipment device (UE) having an elevated priority status, to a second UE having a non-elevated priority status. The method further includes determining, at the base station, that non-elevated priority wireless access channels are congested, detecting, at the base station, a priority indicator within the received paging message in response to determining that the non-elevated priority wireless access channels are congested. The method further includes caching, at the base station, an identifier of the second UE in response to detecting the priority indicator in the received paging message, and establishing a wireless connection between the first UE and the second UE upon verifying that the identifier of the second UE has been cached.

  • Patent number: 11991286
    Abstract: An exemplary method includes an access management system receiving a signed message that is associated with a non-fungible digital asset and that includes a non-fungible digital asset identifier and a nonce. The non-fungible digital asset may be configured to provide access to an access-restricted resource. Based on the non-fungible digital asset identifier included in the signed message, the access management system may access a distributed record that is configured to store ownership information associated with the non-fungible digital asset. Based on the signed message and the ownership information stored in the distributed record, the access management system may verify that a user of the non-fungible digital asset is authorized to access the access-restricted resource.

  • Publication number: 20240163713
    Abstract: A system described herein may apply an authorized set of traffic parameters, such as network slicing parameters, Quality of Service (“QoS”) parameters, etc. to traffic associated with a particular application, without exposing an identifier of the traffic to one or more network devices of a network that handles the traffic. A client associated with a User Equipment (“UE”) may selectively apply traffic parameters to traffic associated with the particular application further based on whether a UE-side authorization of the particular application for the traffic parameters has been performed. The UE may present a user interface via which a user may select whether to authorize or deny the use of traffic parameters, authorized by the network, for the particular application. If the particular application has been authorized by both the network and the user of the UE, the UE may apply the traffic parameters to traffic associated with the particular application.

  • Patent number: 11983819
    Abstract: An illustrative 3D modeling system accesses 1) a 3D body model bounded by vertices forming an unadorned body (without hair or clothing), and 2) a 2D image depicting an adorned subject (with hair and/or clothing). The set of vertices is configurable to simulate different subjects based on a set of parameters and the adorned subject is outlined in the 2D image by a set of silhouette pixels. The 3D modeling system maps the silhouette pixels to vertices of a particular cross section of the 3D body model using an optimization function configured to even out a distribution of silhouette pixels to vertices. Based on the mapping, the 3D modeling system defines the set of parameters to deform the 3D body model such that the particular cross section conforms to an outline of the adorned subject formed by the set of silhouette pixels. Corresponding methods and systems are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11985048
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for a robust Self-Organizing Network (SON) framework that quantifies SON applications' control and management of a network into key performance indicators (KPI) that are leveraged to determine the impact of a SON application's effectiveness in regulating network parameters, which then dictates how the SON application operates. The disclosed framework is configured to receive multiple data streams from existing data sources, determine the performance of a node on a network, and then automatically perform SON operations based therefrom. The disclosed framework can utilize this information to predict additional and/or future opportunities for SON automation on the network, which can be based on an aggregate determination of a net performance gain (NPG) of the SON applications. The framework can leverage the NPG to modify, configure and/or further maintain network operations so as to improve control and management of the network and the applications operating thereon.

  • Patent number: 11985204
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for transferring state between devices. In one implementation, a gestural input is detected, and a state of a source application is transferred from a first device to a second device in response to the gestural input. The second device may then generate an instance of a target application that corresponds to a representation of the state of the source application received from the first device. In an additional implementation, a state of the target application is transferred from the second device to the first device. The first device then updates a state of the source application to correspond to a representation of the state of the target application received from the second device.
