  • Patent number: 10754857
    Abstract: A database system based on just-in-time (JIT) compilation performs a branch optimization and a loop optimization on the stored procedure. An interpreted query processor generating a structured query language (SQL) execution plan regarding an input online transaction processing (OLTP) query, an online analytical processing (OLAP) analysis, and a stored procedure. A JIT-based query processor receives the SQL execution plan, optimizes a branch and a loop in the received SQL execution plan, and then generates an optimized JIT execution plan. The JIT-based query processor generates a query processing executor performing query processing based on the JIT execution plan and provides a result of the query processing performed by the query processing executor.

  • Patent number: 10747571
    Abstract: The technology disclosed relates to improving parallel functional processing using abstractions and methods defined based on category theory. In particular, the technology disclosed provides a range of useful categorical functions for processing large data sets in parallel. These categorical functions manage all phases of distributed computing, including dividing a data set into subsets of approximately equal size and combining the results of the subset calculations into a final result, while hiding many of the low-level programming details. These categorical functions are extraordinarily well-ordered and have a sophisticated type system and type inference, which allows for generating maps and reducing them in an elegant and succinct way using concise and expressive programs that can significantly efficientize a whole software development process.

  • Patent number: 10719497
    Abstract: An ordered data object identifier denoted by a value is assigned to each data object grouped to a container object, wherein data object identifiers with successively incremented values are assigned to successive data objects. An ordered container identifier is assigned to each container object with the greatest value of the identifiers of the data objects grouped thereto. A metadata structure with an entry for each container objects is stored. Each entry comprises the ordered container identifier and a reference to the corresponding data. The metadata structure is ordered according to the values of the container identifiers. A request to read a data object contains a corresponding data object identifier. It is determined to which container object the data object is grouped, by locating the first container identifier in the metadata structure with a value greater than or equal to that the requested data object.

  • Patent number: 10719526
    Abstract: A system and method for synchronizing instrument specification data between a process control system and an external database are provided. A software application automatically connects to the process control system and scans a set of data utilized by the system to detect changes in the data since a previous scan. If changes are detected, the application notifies a manager to accept or reject changes. If changes are accepted, the application updates data stored on an instrumentation database external to the process control system so that the data stored on the instrumentation database is synchronized with real-time data used by the process control system. The system and method provide automated updates to ensure the accuracy of data utilized by users not having regular access to the process control system.

  • Patent number: 10698910
    Abstract: Automated weighting is performed that includes transforming a behavior of each respective dimension of multiple dimensions of a selected group of events to a respective weight, the respective weight determined based on a distribution of values of the respective dimension, and where the weight determined for a first of the plurality of dimensions is greater than the weight determined for a second of the plurality of dimensions. Similarity values are computed indicating similarities between further events and the selected group of events, the similarity values based on a combination of the weights and distances between the further events and the selected group of events. Cohorts of the further events are generated by performing multi-level ranking that comprises ranking groups of the further events based on the similarity values, and applying merging to the groups to produce merged groups. The cohorts are visualized in a graphical visualization.

  • Patent number: 10698656
    Abstract: A computer implemented method of ranking items of data stored in a database comprising a plurality of records, wherein each record is associated with one or more items of data. The method includes generating a concordance of the items of data associated with the records in the database. Each record is assigned to a first group of records or to a second group of records. For each item of data a first indicator is determined representative of its occurrences in the records of the first group. For each item of data a second indicator is determined representative of its occurrences in the records of the second group. For each item of data a score is determined representative of a discriminative power of that item of data on the basis of the first and second indicator of that item of data.

  • Patent number: 10691685
    Abstract: The subject technology provides for converting natural language input to structured queries. The subject technology receives a user input query in a natural language format. The subject technology determines scores for candidate entities derived from the user input query. The subject technology selects an entity with a highest score among the candidate entities, and converts, using a context-free grammar, the user input query to a structured query based at least in part on the selected entity. The subject technology classifies the structured query to an expected answer type, the expected answer type corresponding to a type of an expected answer of the structured query. The subject technology queries a database based on the expected answer type and the structured query, the database including information corresponding to a knowledge graph. The subject technology provides, for display, an answer to the user input query based on a result of querying the database.

  • Patent number: 10678814
    Abstract: Techniques are described for receiving data generated by multiple platforms of different types, and managing the data in multiple stages of a data lifecycle associated with a super-platform. An end-user (e.g., data discloser) may interact with multiple individual (e.g., siloed) platforms of different types. The individual platforms may generate data describing, and/or resulting from, these interactions with end-user(s). The data from the various individual platforms may be received, ingested, stored, analyzed, aggregated, and/or otherwise processed by a super-platform during various stages of a data lifecycle. In some implementations, the end-user, the super-platform, and/or the individual platform(s) may provide one or more restrictions on how the data may be handled in each of the stages of the data lifecycle.
