  • Patent number: 11409786
    Abstract: The present disclosure pertains to computer-assisted search of image slices. In some embodiments, an image slice having a detected finding (and representing a cross section of at least a portion of an individual) may be determined. A search space may be reduce to a subset of image slices respectively representing a cross section corresponding to the cross section represented by the determined image slice. The search space reduction may comprise filtering a set of image slices based on the cross section represented by the determined image slice. Image slice information related to the determined image slice and related one or more image slices (of the image slices subset) may be obtained based on the search space reduction. A determination of whether indications of the detected finding exist in the image slices (of the image slices subset) may be effectuated based on the image slice information.

  • Patent number: 11403258
    Abstract: First and second trees having leaves identified by hexadecimal values are generated. First files from a first file set are allocated across the first tree based on hashes of the first files. The hashes of the first files are translated into first leaf index values. Second files from a second file set are allocated across the second tree based on hashes of the second files. The hashes of the second files are translated into second leaf index values. The first and second leaf index values are compared to identify leaves that are the same between the first and second trees. A similarity index indicating a degree of similarity between the first and second sets of files is created based on the comparison.

  • Patent number: 11341094
    Abstract: Embodiments control software hosted by cloud providers and private clouds. Operational data received from the software correlates: •a time, •a user at the time, and •a software component accessed by the user at the time. The operational data relates to resources (e.g., storage, computational, network) that are consumed. Experiential data characterizing a quality of user interaction, is also received. The experiential data may be derived from operational data (e.g., inferred from time lags), or received separately as feedback. Operational data and experiential data are processed according to a ruleset or a neural network. Based upon the result, which optimizes towards costs, experience data (e.g., time lags) or policies (e.g. security constraints), a command causes an actuator to act upon the software. The actuator may trigger movement to a different host (e.g. different cloud provider). The move functionality, if applied to many customers at once, embodies a cloud provider switch service.

  • Patent number: 11288236
    Abstract: In general, a data synchronization management system is disclosed in which files (and/or other data) are synchronized among two or more computing devices. Synchronization policies specify files to be synchronized based on selected criteria including file data, metadata, and location information. In general, files are initially copied from a primary client computing device to secondary storage. Thereafter, files to be synchronized are identified from the secondary storage and copied to other computing devices. Additionally, synchronized files may be viewed and accessed through a cloud and/or remote file access interface.

  • Patent number: 11275766
    Abstract: A complex object generator is implemented, for example, as an integrated development environment. The complex object generator includes a hierarchical object relationship data structure describing classes of objects, relationships between the classes of objects, and metrics associated with the classes of objects. The hierarchical object relationship data structure is parsed by parser to create a hierarchy of Java classes. A user interface uses the hierarchy of Java classes to constrain selection of objects and metrics during creation of the complex object. As input is received relative to selected objects and metrics, the complex object is incrementally built. By constraining object and metric selection using the hierarchy of Java classes, the complex object is guaranteed to be valid when built, thus reducing or eliminating the number of errors associated with building complex objects.

  • Patent number: 11275763
    Abstract: A content management system synchronizes content items across client computing systems connected by a network. Each client device has a storage allocation for synchronized shared content items. If the storage allocation for shared content items on a client device is exceeded by the request to add or edit a content item such that it is enlarged, or open a large content item remote to the client device, a client application or the host of content management system selects content items to remove from residence on the client device but keep remotely on content management system. Upon removal of the selected content items, the client application creates shadow items, representing the content item but only containing the metadata of the content item. This creates sufficient space for the initial request to be completed while maintaining user access to all synchronized shared content items.
