  • Patent number: 10769208
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is an automated approach for summarizing media content using descriptive information associated with the media content. For example and without limitation, the descriptive information may comprise a title associated with the media content. One or more segments of the media content may be identified to form a media content summary based on each segment's respective similarity to the descriptive information, which respective similarity may be determined using a media content and auxiliary data feature spaces. A shared dictionary of canonical patterns generated using the media content and auxiliary data feature spaces may be used in determining a media content segment's similarity to the descriptive information.

  • Patent number: 10754852
    Abstract: A computer system extracts contender values as positively associated with a pre-defined value from a compilation of one or more electronically stored semi-structured document(s) and/or one or more electronically stored unstructured document(s). The computer system performs a multi-dimensional analysis to narrow the universe of contender values from all words on a page of the compilation to the contender value(s) with the highest likelihood of being associated with the pre-defined value. The system's platform allows every user of the system to customize the system according to the user's needs. Various aspects can enable users to mine document stores for information that can be charted, graphed, studied, and compared to help make better decisions.

  • Patent number: 10642913
    Abstract: According to an example, intent and bot based query guidance may include receiving a query associated with a domain, and identifying, based on an analysis of the query, an intent of the query by extracting an action associated with the query and an entity associated with the query. An intent model associated with the query may be generated based on a mapping of the action and the entity with a domain model of the domain. An intent domain specific language representation of the intent model associated with the query may be generated. Based on an analysis of the intent domain specific language representation, a plurality of bots may be identified, and a parameterized bot chain may be generated to respond to the query. A runtime binding of bots of the parameterized bot chain may be performed, and invoked to generate the response to the query.

  • Patent number: 10621021
    Abstract: A computing device 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 computing device obtains a data identifier associated with a data object and determines DSN address(es) associated with storage of one or more encoded data slice(s) (EDS(s)). The computing device selects slice names based on the DSN address(es) and issues at least a read threshold number of read slice requests using slice names to at least some storage units (SUs). When an insufficient number of EDSs is received, the computing device issues an alternate read slice request to an alternate SU. When a sufficient number of EDSs is received from the alternate SU and the computing device has received at least the read threshold number of EDSs, the computing device reconstructs the data segment.
