  • Patent number: 11314807
    Abstract: Systems and methods of comparing structured documents are disclosed. From/to source documents are first represented by their respective from/to XML forms based on a predetermined schema. One or more from nodes are selected from the from XML document to compare to one or more to nodes from the to XML document. The comparison employs a set of matching functions that may be selected based on the domain of the source documents. The matching functions may compare just the tags of XML elements, and/or their text contents and/or any of their relevant attributes. The matching may be exact or approximate. Each matching function computes a score which may be weighted. For each pair of from/to nodes, an overall match-score is computed based on the scores of the individual matching functions. If the match-score reaches a matching-threshold, the pair is determined to be a match and further matching is stopped. The techniques are extended for comparing multiple from documents to a to document.

  • Patent number: 11301639
    Abstract: A method and a system of using machine learning to automatically generate a reference data structure for a K-anonymity model. A vector space is generated from reference text data, where the vector space is defined by numerical vectors representative of semantic meanings of the reference text words. Input text words are converted into numerical vectors using the vector space. Word clusters are formed according to semantic similarity between the input text words, where the semantic similarity between pairs of input text words is represented by metric values determined from pairs of numerical vectors. The word clusters define nodes of the reference data structure. A text label is applied to each node of the reference data structure, where the text label is representative of the semantic meaning shared by elements of the word cluster.

  • Patent number: 11301631
    Abstract: A computing device has a display, one or more processors, and memory. The memory stores one or more programs configured for execution by the one or more processors. The computing device receives from a user a partial natural language input related to a data source. The partial natural language input includes a most recently entered first term. In response to receiving the first term, the computing device generates a first token that includes the first term. The computing device maps the first token to one or more analytical concepts in a lexicon of the data source. The computing device determines a first interpretation corresponding to the first token. The computing device also displays a first phrase corresponding to the first interpretation. The first interpretation includes the first term.

  • Patent number: 11295121
    Abstract: The electronic devices described herein are configured to enhance user experience associated with drawing or otherwise inputting shape data into the electronic devices. Shape input data is identified and matched against known shape patterns and, when a match is found, an entity associated with the shape is determined. The entity is converted into an annotation for rendering and/or displaying to the user. The shape identification, entity determination, and annotation conversion may all be based on one or more context elements to increase the accuracy of the shape interpretation. In particular, elements of conversations held via the electronic devices may be used as context for the shape interpretation. Further, machine learning techniques may be applied based on a variety of feedback data to improve the accuracy, speed, and/or performance of the shape interpretation process.

  • Patent number: 11256872
    Abstract: Aspects of the invention include receiving an original work written in a first style to be transformed into a derivate work written in a second style. The transforming includes accessing a similarity data structure organized to include a phrase-similarity vector space of phrase vectors representing degrees of similarity between phrases in a corpus of works written in the second style. An original sentence of the original work that includes one or more original phrases is obtained. The original phrases are located in the phrase-similarity vector space. For each of the original phrases, a similar phrase from the phrase-similarity vector space is selected based on the selected similar phrase having a phrase-similarity index corresponding to the original phrase that is greater than a predetermined phrase-similarity index threshold. The derivative work is created by replacing the original phrases in the original work with the selected similar phrases. The derivative work is output.

  • Patent number: 11250253
    Abstract: A handwriting input display apparatus causes display means to display a stroke generated by an input made by using input means to a screen as a handwritten object. The apparatus includes display control means for causing the display means to display character string candidates including a handwriting recognition candidate when the handwritten object does not change for a predetermined time. When the handwriting recognition candidate is selected, the display control means causes the display means to erase a display of the character string candidates and a display of the handwritten object, and causes the display means to display a character string object at a position where the erased handwritten object was displayed. When selection of the handwriting recognition candidate is not performed for a predetermined time and the display of the character string candidates is erased, the display control means causes the handwritten object to be kept displayed.

  • Patent number: 11244109
    Abstract: An information processing device specifies a plurality of cooccurrence words common to first and second words, and determines synonymity or relevancy about the first word and the second word based on cooccurrence indices between the specified cooccurrence words and each of the first and second words. More specifically, the information processing device selects, from among the specified cooccurrence words, one cooccurrence word in which at least one of cooccurrence indices between the specified cooccurrence word and the first and second words does not exceed a preset first threshold, and obtains a difference in cooccurrence index between each selected cooccurrence word and each of the first and second words, if the difference exceeds a preset second threshold, the information processing device determines the first and second words as relevant word candidates, and if the difference does not exceed the second threshold, the information processing device determines them as synonym candidates.

  • Patent number: 11232474
    Abstract: A method of avoiding infinite loops of changes to a dynamic web page to display on a client device includes displaying the dynamic web page received from a content provider on the client device, wherein the dynamic web page comprises a modified element having an original modification. The method further includes receiving an indication that the modified element was updated to generate an updated modified element. The method further includes, in response to receiving the indication, determining, by a processing device, that reapplying the original modification to the updated modified element would result in an infinite loop on the dynamic web page. The method further includes, based on the determination, displaying the updated modified element on the dynamic without reapplying the original modification to the updated modified element.

  • Patent number: 11228441
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to a system, computer readable medium, and method for automated data verification. The disclosure provides highly automated, customizable ways of verifying the integrity of large sets of data to ensure that data migration has occurred correctly. Namely, source data is converted into spreadsheet files using a customizable set of field definitions and then filtered to identify corresponding sets of data to be verified. Once filtered, the data in the spreadsheets are converted in hashmaps, which can easily and efficiently be compared to each other to find any inconsistencies in the data. Accordingly, as a result of this process, large sets of source data can be error checked in an efficient manner that saves computing processing power and time. This disclosure therefore addresses the problem of how to perform comparisons of various data across multiple source systems in large volumes.
