  • Patent number: 11366824
    Abstract: Various embodiments relate generally to data science and data analysis, computer software and systems, and wired and wireless network communications to provide an interface between repositories of disparate datasets and computing machine-based entities that seek access to the datasets, and, more specifically, to a computing and data storage platform that facilitates consolidation of one or more datasets, whereby a collaborative data layer and associated logic facilitate, for example, efficient access to, and implementation of, collaborative datasets. In some examples, a method may include receiving a dataset having a data format into a dataset ingestion controller configured to form a collaborative dataset, interpreting data of the dataset against data classifications at an inference engine to derive at least an inferred attribute, associating the data with annotative data identifying the inferred attribute, and converting the dataset at a format converter to form an atomized dataset.

  • Patent number: 11354321
    Abstract: A mechanism is provided for re-ranking search results based on a personal medical condition. One or more medical conditions associated with a patient are identified based on an analysis of patient information associated with the patient. The one or more medical conditions are correlated with a set of medical condition content indicator data structures. A search query corresponding to the patient is processed to generate initial search results that are ranked with an initial ranking. The initial search results are analyzed based on a patient specific dictionary data structure corresponding to the one or more medical conditions associated with the patient. The content of the initial search results are re-ranked to generate re-ranked search results having a modified ranking that is based on the one or more medical conditions of the patient. The re-ranked search results are output to the patient in accordance with the modified ranking.

  • Patent number: 11347719
    Abstract: A multi-table data validation tool is run following migration of data from a source database to a target database. The multi-table data validation tool extracts data from source and target locations into memory, transforms data and masks confidential data as needed, then performs two types of data comparison, including row count and data content comparison. Result files of each comparison are available to the migration team, enabling updates and improvements to the migration tools. The multi-table data validation tool may further be used to extract requested data from either the source database or the target database. The multi-table data validation tool may be dockerized as a container for ease of deployment in different environments.

  • Patent number: 11327937
    Abstract: A distributed data storage system may implement determining indexing progress for a table stored in the distributed data storage system. A table may be stored in multiple table partitions. When a secondary index is created for the table, each partition may independently index the items stored within the table partition in order to identify those items in the partition that should be stored in the secondary index. During creation of the secondary index, creation progress points that indicate the progress of the indexing across the table partitions may be determined. The creation progress points may be provided via a programmatic, textual, or graphical interface to the distributed data storage system.

  • Patent number: 11321305
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to utilizing independently stored validation keys to enable auditing of instrument measurement data maintained in a blockchain. A computing platform may receive, from a first block generator, a first data block comprising first measurement data captured by a first instrument and associated with a sample. Subsequently, the computing platform may receive a first validation key for the first data block calculated from contents of the first data block. Then, the computing platform may store the first data block and the first validation key for the first data block in a blockchain associated with the data management computing platform. Next, the computing platform may send the first validation key for the first data block to a data escrow database system, which may cause the data escrow database system to store the first validation key in a validation keys database.

  • Patent number: 11314720
    Abstract: Techniques are described that are performed by one or more database management system (DBMS) of the plurality of DBMS nodes comprising one or more database servers performing database operations on one or more databases of the DBMS nodes. The techniques describe receiving, at a QC node, a distributed query that specifying a database of a target DBMS node. Without requesting from the target DBMS node a current logical timestamp of the DBMS node, calculating a synchronization timestamp for the distributed query. In one embodiment, the calculation of the synchronization timestamp for the distributed query is based on a current logical timestamp of the QC node and one or more previous logical timestamps of the target DBMS node that were received prior to the receiving the distributed query. The QC node sends a request to the target DBMS node to execute an operation of the query at the target DBMS node based on the synchronization timestamp.

  • Patent number: 11314598
    Abstract: Systems and methods for determining similarity between sets of objects are disclosed. A set of hashes are generated for a set of objects. A similarity vector is generated for the set of hashes. The similarity vector is a compact representation of the set of hashes and of the corresponding set of objects. The similarity of the set of objects is determined by comparing the similarity vector of the set of objects with other similarity vectors. In a data protection system, the set of objects can be placed with the node or system that stores objects that are most similar to the set of objects being placed.
