  • Patent number: 11671476
    Abstract: A system designed for increasing network communication speed for users, while lowering network congestion for content owners and ISPs. The system employs network elements including an acceleration server, clients, agents, and peers, where communication requests generated by applications are intercepted by the client on the same machine. The IP address of the server in the communication request is transmitted to the acceleration server, which provides a list of agents to use for this IP address. The communication request is sent to the agents. One or more of the agents respond with a list of peers that have previously seen some or all of the content which is the response to this request (after checking whether this data is still valid).

  • Patent number: 11604824
    Abstract: A system and method of managing user engagement with a musical playlist provides feedback for a host and allows attendees to directly engage with the host to adjust a playlist for an event or social gathering. The system includes at least one remote server, a corresponding user personal computing (PC) device, and a corresponding host PC device. The method begins by prompting the at least one host account to initiate an event session for a plurality of attendee accounts and then to designate a plurality of playlist songs with the corresponding host PC device. The event session is managed in between the host account and the plurality of attendee accounts through the remote server. A current song is played during the event session and feedback is relayed for the current song with the corresponding user PC device. The feedback is then outputted with the corresponding host PC device.

  • Patent number: 11601501
    Abstract: Throughput is preserved in a distributed system while maintaining concurrency by pushing a commit wait period to client commit paths and to future readers. As opposed to servers performing commit waits, the servers assign timestamps, which are used to ensure that causality is preserved. When a server executes a transaction that writes data to a distributed database, the server acquires a user-level lock, and assigns the transaction a timestamp equal to a current time plus an interval corresponding to bounds of uncertainty of clocks in the distributed system. After assigning the timestamp, the server releases the user-level lock. Any client devices, before performing a read of the written data, must wait until the assigned timestamp is in the past.

  • Patent number: 11593651
    Abstract: Neural networks can be used for time series data classification. However, in a K-shot scenario in which sufficient training data is unavailable to train the neural network, the neural network may not produce desired results. Disclosed herein are a method and system for training a neural network for time series data classification. In this method, by processing a plurality of task specific data, a system generates a set of updated parameters, which is further used to train a neural network (network) till a triplet loss is below a threshold. The network is trained on a diverse set of few-shot tasks sampled from various domains (e.g. healthcare, activity recognition, and so on) such that it can solve a target task from another domain using only a small number of training samples from the target task.

  • Patent number: 11580070
    Abstract: A query directed to database data stored across a set of files is received. The query includes predicates and each file from the set of files is associated with metadata stored in a metadata store that is separate from a storage platform that stores the set of files. One or more files are removed from the set of files whose metadata does not satisfy a predicate of the plurality of predicates to generate a pruned set of files. One or more predicates are removed that are satisfied by the metadata of the pruned set of files to generate a modified query.

  • Patent number: 11575571
    Abstract: A model-based industrial security policy configuration system implements a plant-wide industrial asset security policy in accordance with security policy definitions provided by a user. The configuration system models the collection of industrial assets for which diverse security policies are to be implemented. An interface allows the user to define zone-specific security configuration and event management policies for a plant environment at a high-level based on a security model that groups the industrial assets into security zones. Based on the model and these policy definitions, the system generates asset-level security setting instructions configured to set appropriate device settings on one or more of the industrial assets to implement the security event management policies, and deploys these instructions to the appropriate assets in order to implement the defined policies.
