  • Patent number: 11176156
    Abstract: A system determines a name probability based on a first name dataset frequency of a first name value stored by a first name field in a personal record and a last name dataset frequency of a last name value stored by a last name field in a personal record. The system determines at least one other probability based on another dataset frequency of another value stored by another field in the personal record and an additional dataset frequency of an additional value stored by an additional field in the personal record. The system determines a combined probability based on the name probability and the at least one other probability.

  • Patent number: 11176147
    Abstract: A computer-implemented technique is described herein for creating a relational data structure by extracting user data items from a collection of one or more applications sources. These data items evince interests exhibited by the users, and may include messages, documents, tasks, meetings, etc. The technique also collects knowledge data items from one or more knowledge sources. In one implementation, these data items may include terms used to describe skills possessed by the users. The technique constructs the data structure by providing objects associated with respective data items, and links between respective pairs of objects. In its real-time phase of operation, the technique allows a user to interrogate the relational data structure, e.g., to identify skills possessed by a particular user, to find users associated with a specified skill, etc.

  • Patent number: 11170064
    Abstract: A method, system, and product for filtering out unwanted social media content in real-time. The system comprises multiple sets of machine learning classifiers to filter out the unwanted content on any media including but not limited to text, images, audio, and video. Classifiers are trained with labeled data. After being trained, the models screen the incoming real-time data either on a server or a mobile device. A user application is run that results in only approved content to be displayed on the main screen of the user application device. The unwanted data are still available if the user desires to access them. The classifiers are trained with labeled data; and with input parameters in addition to the labeled data. On the device, customized models are trained with the individual user data and Transfers Learning models. When unwanted content is detected, a report is sent to an entity that might help support the receiver.

  • Patent number: 11132350
    Abstract: In various embodiments, methods and systems for optimizing database transactions based on replicable differential data store data structure are provided. A write operation request, having a key for a write operation on a replicable differential store data structure, is accessed. An intent write lock on a differential state and a write lock on the key are acquired. The differential state comprises a result set of currently committing transactions. A transaction instance, of the write operation, is generated for a write set, the transaction instance comprising a modification to the key. The write-set comprises an uncommitted set of writes for in-flight transactions. A determination is made that the write operation is committed. A result of the transaction instance is persisted when the write operation is committed. It is contemplated that the differential state and a consolidated state can be merged, the consolidated state comprises a result set of previously committed transactions.

  • Patent number: 11106694
    Abstract: Computerized pipelines can transform input data into data structures compatible with models in some examples. In one such example, a system can obtain a first table that includes first data referencing a set of subjects. The system can then execute a sequence of processing operations on the first data in a particular order defined by a data-processing pipeline to modify an analysis table to include features associated with the set of subjects. Executing each respective processing operation in the sequence to generate the modified analysis table may involve: deriving a respective set of features from the first data by executing a respective feature-extraction operation on the first data; and adding the respective set of features to the analysis table. The system may then execute a predictive model on the modified analysis table for generating a predicted value based on the modified analysis table.

  • Patent number: 11100117
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for search result optimization using machine learning models. A search system uses machine learning models generate a target vector based on query features of a search query and a set of listing vectors based on listing features of listings identified as part of the search query. The target vector represents an estimated optimal listing for the search query and each listing vector represents a corresponding listing identified as part of the search query. The search system determines distances (e.g., Euclidian distance) between each listing vector and the target vector. The determined distances indicate how similar each listing is to the estimated optimal listing for the search query. The search system ranks the listings based on the distances such that listings that are similar to the estimated optimal listing are ranked higher than listing that are not similar to the estimated optimal listing.

  • Patent number: 11102311
    Abstract: A downtime registration service is discussed herein that enables client systems that rely on electronic record management systems to continue generating records during a downtime event for the electronic record management system without relying on a workaround that requires temporary identifiers or reentry of data. The downtime registration system improves the efficiency and accuracy of electronic systems because workarounds that involve using temporary identifiers, or reentering data collected during the downtime, increase the amount of work done and the chance for errors to be introduced into the records. The client systems are in communication with an outside facility providing advanced services, which track the records generated during normal operation (i.e., not downtime) so that new records created during downtime properly reuse existing record identifiers or assign new identifiers that correspond to the clients' record keeping policies.
