  • Patent number: 11366806
    Abstract: Various implementations include approaches for automating feature generation. The underlying intellectual paradigm to the approach is ensemble learning. That is, each generated feature is an element in an ensemble. Ensemble learning is a very successful paradigm in classical machine learning and dominates real-world predictive analytics projects through tools such as xgboost ( . . . ) or lightgbm ( . . . ). It is also appropriate, because of its ease-of-use compared to other successful paradigms such as deep learning. Moreover, it is possible to generate human-readable SQL code, which is very difficult with deep learning approaches. The various implementations described herein provide for increased scalability and efficiency as compared with conventional approaches.

  • Patent number: 11366404
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes an image bearer, a transfer rotator, an adjuster, and circuitry. The image bearer bears a toner image. The transfer rotator contacts the image bearer to form a transfer nip between the transfer rotator and the image bearer. The transfer rotator transfers the toner image from the image bearer onto a sheet conveyed to the transfer nip. The adjuster adjusts at least one of a relative difference in linear velocity of the transfer rotator to the image bearer at the transfer nip and a relative contact pressure of the transfer rotator to the image bearer at the transfer nip. Based on a difference in image magnification, in a direction of conveyance of the sheet, of toner images transferred onto surfaces of one or more sheets conveyed to the transfer nip, the circuitry causes the adjuster to reduce the difference in image magnification.

  • Patent number: 11366836
    Abstract: Geospatial data is gathered for generation of a geodatacube encompassing data from multiple geospatial data sets for efficient processing and optimization. A method for gathering, storing and processing geospatial data includes identifying a plurality of geospatial data sets for intake, each defining a geospatial data parameter. For each geospatial data set, a plurality of subregions is defined such that each subregion corresponds to a portion of the geographic entity having the same value for the data parameter defined by the respective geospatial data set. In other words, subdividing the geographic entity along demarcations defined by variances in the data parameter(s) defined by the geospatial data set. A number of geospatial data sets for intake are arranged into layers, where each layer defines the data parameter for the respective subregions of the geographic entity. A partition defining polygons common to all layers represents a union of the subregions.

  • Patent number: 11360990
    Abstract: A method and system of matching field values of a field type are described. Blurring operations are applied on a first and second values to obtain blurred values. A first maximum score is determined from first scores for blurred values, where each one of the first scores is indicative of a confidence that a match of the first and the second values occurs with knowledge of a first blurred value. A second maximum score is determined from second scores for the blurred values, where each one of the second scores is indicative of a confidence that a non-match of the first and the second values occurs with knowledge of the first blurred value. Responsive to determining that the first maximum score is greater than the second maximum score, an indication that the first value matches the second value is output.

  • Patent number: 11358621
    Abstract: A system for monitoring and controlling shopping cart usage comprises a wheel assembly that attaches to a shopping cart. In some embodiments the wheel assembly includes a wheel, a brake that can be activated to inhibit rotation of the wheel, a controller that controls the brake, a VLF receiver, and an RF transceiver. The RF transceiver may, for example, operate in a 2.4 GHz frequency band.

  • Patent number: 11361227
    Abstract: Techniques are described herein to improve onboarding of third party entity data with existing knowledge graphs. In various implementations, a computing system associated with an existing knowledge graph may receive a request from a third party to onboard, with the existing knowledge graph, a plurality of entities. Each entity may have associated identifier(s) and relationship(s) with other entities of the plurality of entities. First third party entity data that describes the plurality of entities and associated identifiers/relationships may be received from the third party. The first third entity party data may be analyzed to identify semantic fingerprint(s) matching respective subsets of the entities. Results related to the analyzing may be determined. The results may include a statistic representing success or failure of applying rule(s) to a respective subset of entities that match a given semantic fingerprint. Remedial action(s) may be triggered based on the failure statistic.
