  • Patent number: 11151208
    Abstract: An apparatus includes an interface and a processor. The interface sends and receives data over a network. The processor uses the interface to transmit a first media file to a device of a user. The first media file presents a first choice between at least two options. The processor uses the interface to receive from the user a first selection in response to the first choice. In response to receiving the first selection, the processor transmits a second media file to the device. The second media file presents a second choice between at least two options. The processor uses the interface to receive from the user a second selection in response to the second choice. The processor identifies, based in part on the first selection and the second selection, a second user as potentially compatible with the user and transmits to the user a profile of the second user.

  • Patent number: 11144599
    Abstract: There is provided a method and a system for generating clusters of documents using a combined metric parameter. A first document and a second document are received, and for a potential cluster including the first document and the second document: a first metric parameter indicative of a degree of complementariness of document content in the potential cluster is determined, a second metric parameter indicative of a degree of dilution of the document content in the potential cluster is determined. The combined metric parameter is determined based on the first metric parameter and the second metric parameter. A cluster is generated based on the combined metric parameter, where the cluster includes the first and second documents. Other document(s) or clusters may be added to the cluster by determining an updated combined metric parameter for a potential cluster and comparing the updated combined metric parameter with the combined metric parameter.

  • Patent number: 11138266
    Abstract: Systems and techniques for leveraging query executions to improve index recommendations are described herein. In an example, a machine learning model is adapted to receive a first query plan and a second query plan for performing a query with a database, where the first query plan is different from the second query plan. The machine learning model may be further adapted to determine execution cost efficiency between the first query plan and the second query plan. The machine learning model is trained using relative execution cost comparisons between a set of pairs of query plans for the database. The machine learning model is further adapted to output a ranking of the first query plan and second query plan, where the first query plan and second query plan are ranked based on execution cost efficiency.

  • Patent number: 11113110
    Abstract: Techniques are described herein for intelligent pooling and management of isolated hierarchical runtimes in a multi-tenant environment. In an embodiment, an allocation of operating system resources of a container database management system (CDBMS) is allocated to each generic nest of a pool of generic nests. The allocation includes a quota of one or more processors and a quota of memory. A configuration profile for a PDB in the CDBMS is then determined. Based on the configuration profile determined for the PDB, a matching generic nest from the pool of generic nests is determined. A matching generic nest is assigned to the PDB. The matching generic nest is then configured for the PDB.

  • Patent number: 11113008
    Abstract: A storage unit (SU) includes an interface configured to interface and communicate with a dispersed storage network (DSN), a memory that stores operational instructions, and processing circuitry operably coupled to the interface and to the memory. The processing circuitry is configured to execute the operational instructions to perform various operations and functions. The SU, of a first SU set, receives a partially encoded slice request to restore a set of encoded data slices (EDSs) that are based on first dispersed storage error coding function parameters. The SU generates a decode threshold number of partially EDSs based on the first and second dispersed storage error coding function parameters. The SU then outputs the decode threshold number of partially EDSs to a second SU set to undergo selective combination respectively to generate new EDSs for storage within the SUs of the second decode threshold number of SUs of the second SU set.

  • Patent number: 11113351
    Abstract: A method includes acquiring data from sources of search query data. The data indicates searches performed at multiple search engines. The method includes identifying a set of search terms from the data, determining a number of times each of the identified set of search terms was searched, and generating a search count for each of the identified set of search terms based on the number of times each of the identified set of search terms was searched. The method includes classifying, based on predetermined criteria, the searches for the identified set of search terms as being active or passive, assigning weights according to predetermined rules to each of the searches based on whether each of the searches is active or passive, and generating weighted search counts by multiplying the search counts with respective weights. The method includes generating a score indicating an interest level in the first search term.
