  • Patent number: 11361219
    Abstract: Described is a system for feature selection that extends supervised hierarchical clustering to neural activity signals. The system generates, using a hierarchical clustering process, a hierarchical dendrogram representing a set of neural activity data comprising individual neural data elements having neural activity patterns. The hierarchical dendrogram is searched for an optimal cluster parcellation using a stochastic supervised search process. An optimal cluster parcellation of the hierarchical dendrogram is determined that provides a classification of the set of neural activity data with respect to a supervised classifier, resulting in a reduced neural activity feature set. The set of neural activity data is classified using the reduced neural activity feature set, and the classified set of neural activity data is decoded.

  • Patent number: 11295233
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates applying a survival analysis to model when a particular recipient will view an electronic message. For example, one or more embodiments train a survivor function to model the time that will elapse, on a continuous scale, before a recipient will open an electronic message. For example, one or more embodiments involve accessing analytics training data and extracting a first set of features affecting the time that elapsed before past recipients opened an electronic message and a second set of features affecting whether the recipients opened the electronic message at all. The system then generates a mixture model modified survivor function and determines the effect of each feature set on its corresponding outcome to learn parameters for the mixture model modified survivor function.

  • Patent number: 11256973
    Abstract: A neural network embodiment comprises an input layer, an output layer and a filter layer. Each unit of the filter layer receives a filter layer input from a single preceding unit via a respective filter layer input connection. Each filter layer input connection is coupled to a different single preceding unit. The filter layer incentivizes the neural network to learn to produce a target output from the output layer for a given input to the input layer while simultaneously learning weights for each filter layer input connection. The weights learned cause the filter layer to reduce a number of filter layer units that pass respective filter layer inputs as non-zero values. When applied as an initial internal layer between an input layer and an output layer, the filter layer incentivizes the neural network to learn which neural network input features to discard to produce the target output.

  • Patent number: 11222253
    Abstract: The technology disclosed provides a so-called “joint many-task neural network model” to solve a variety of increasingly complex natural language processing (NLP) tasks using growing depth of layers in a single end-to-end model. The model is successively trained by considering linguistic hierarchies, directly connecting word representations to all model layers, explicitly using predictions in lower tasks, and applying a so-called “successive regularization” technique to prevent catastrophic forgetting. Three examples of lower level model layers are part-of-speech (POS) tagging layer, chunking layer, and dependency parsing layer. Two examples of higher level model layers are semantic relatedness layer and textual entailment layer. The model achieves the state-of-the-art results on chunking, dependency parsing, semantic relatedness and textual entailment.
