  • Patent number: 11227231
    Abstract: A method and system of analyzing a symbolic sequence is provided. Metadata of a symbolic sequence is received from a computing device of an owner. A set of R random sequences are generated based on the received metadata and sent to the computing device of the owner of the symbolic sequence for computation of a feature matrix based on the set of R random sequences and the symbolic sequence. The feature matrix is received from the computing device of the owner. Upon determining that an inner product of the feature matrix is below a threshold accuracy, the iterative process returns to generating R random sequences. Upon determining that the inner product of the feature matrix is at or above the threshold accuracy, the feature matrix is categorized based on machine learning. The categorized global feature matrix is sent to be displayed on a user interface of the computing device of the owner.

  • Patent number: 11222261
    Abstract: An implementation of the disclosure provides an apparatus comprising a memory to store classification data of a machine learning model; and a processing device, operatively coupled to the memory, to detect characteristics of an object. The characteristics comprise at least a spatial position of the object. Sensor information is received from a node device. The sensor information is indicative of at least one of: a spatial position, a speed or a direction of movement of the node device. Using the sensor information, it is determined whether the node device is within a threshold with respect to the object in accordance with the detected characteristics. Responsive to determining that the node device is within the threshold, a notification related to at least part of the classification data and the one or more characteristics is provided to the node device. The classification data is representative of a classification of the object.

  • Patent number: 11176475
    Abstract: An artificial intelligence system for training a classifier has a database of training data and a modeling system for building a classification model based on the training data. The database has a binary classification for each entity and binary tokens indicating whether or not one or more indicators about the entity are true. The classification model is based on a tempered indication of the tokens. The tempered indication is a ratio of a weighted sum of the tokens for each entity divided by a tempering factor for each of the entities. The tempering factor is a function of the unweighted sum of the tokens for each entity. Thus, the tempering factor will reduce the tempered indication when large numbers of low weight tokens are present so that the model does not over predict the probability of an entity being in the classification.

  • Patent number: 11164108
    Abstract: A trained base model is distributed to a set of nodes. From a first node in the set of nodes, a first set of meta-metrics resulting from a transfer learning operation on the trained base model at the first node is collected. The transfer learning at the first node uses first local data available at the first node. The first node is clustered in a cluster with a second node from the set of nodes, in response to a meta-metric in the first set of meta-metrics being within a tolerance value of a corresponding meta-metric in a second set of meta-metrics collected from the second node. A normalized set of model parameters is constructed after an iteration of transfer learning or local learning at the first and second nodes. The normalized set of model parameters is distributed to the first node and the second node in the cluster.

  • Patent number: 11151502
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to managing operations. If Operations events are provided, event clusters may be associated with one or more Operations events, such that the Operations events may be associated with the event clusters based on characteristics of the Operations events. Metrics including resolution metrics, root cause analysis, notes, and other remediation information may be associated with the event clusters. Then a modeling engine may be employed to train models based on the Operations events, the event clusters, and the resolution metrics, such that the trained model may be trained to correlate and predict the resolution metrics from real-time Operations events. If real-time Operations events may be provided, the trained models may be employed to predict the resolution metrics that are associated with the real-time Operations events. If model performance degrades beyond accuracy requirements, new observations may be added to the training set and the model re-trained.

  • Patent number: 11137761
    Abstract: Methods, computer-readable media, and devices are disclosed for improving an object model based upon measurements of physical properties of an object via an unmanned vehicle using adversarial examples. For example, a method may include a processing system capturing measurements of physical properties of an object via at least one unmanned vehicle, updating an object model for the object to include the measurements of the physical properties of the object, where the object model is associated with a feature space, and generating an example from the feature space, where the example comprises an adversarial example. The processing system may further apply the object model to the example to generate a prediction, capture additional measurements of the physical properties of the object via the at least one unmanned vehicle when the prediction fails to identify that the example is an adversarial example, and update the object model to include the additional measurements.

  • Patent number: 11106989
    Abstract: Described is a system for predicting an occurrence of large-scale events using social media data. A collection of time series is acquired from social media data related to an event of interest. The collection of time series is partitioned into time intervals and semantic features are extracted from the time intervals as a set of semantic intervals. The semantic features are encoded into a multilayer network. Subgraphs of the multilayer network are transformed into a state transition network. A prediction of a future event of interest is generated by analyzing the encoded network using the state transition network. Using the analyzed encoded network, a device is controlled based on the prediction of the future event of interest.
