  • Patent number: 11556838
    Abstract: Techniques and solutions are described for determining association rules using a machine learning technique on a subset of data to which the association rules might apply, and from which they can be determined. In particular, association rules are determined by tracking changes to attribute values of data objects having a type. The changed attribute value can be used as a consequent in an association rule. Values of other attributes of data objects having the changed attribute value can be used as antecedents in association rules. Values used in antecedents can be constrained, such as by limiting values to those associated with scope attributes or values satisfying a threshold occurrence frequency. In some cases, determined association rules can be automatically implemented, such as to process input or stored data for data objects of the type.

  • Patent number: 11354491
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for improving data modeling and translating. The system receives network-related data from external systems, wherein the data is formatted in various modeling languages corresponding to the system or network components from which it is transmitted. The system parses and extracts the network-related data for identifying parameters within the data, wherein the parameters correspond to the system or network component's operational status. The system translates the extracted data to a human-readable format for displaying the data to a system user and allowing the user to modify or provide additional parameters. The system generates a new instance of the network-related data including the user-provided parameters, wherein the new instance is translated into a format in accordance with the modeling language of the initially received network-related data.
