  • Patent number: 10936684
    Abstract: Various embodiments describe a segmentation application that uses a predictive model to segment content from instruction manuals. In an example, the segmentation application receives training data including training labels and steps available from instruction manuals. The segmentation application trains a predictive model based on the training data and a loss function. The training includes generating, by the predictive model, a prediction of whether the sub-step is the start of the step and minimizing the loss function based on comparison of the prediction to the training label. Upon completion of the training, the segmentation application identifies electronic sources and a start indicator indicating a start of a specific step. The segmentation application provides, in response to a query about an object from a client device, a step generated from the start indicator.

  • Patent number: 10936623
    Abstract: Through a first processing thread, a first database is accessed via a first API to retrieve a list of event objects of the first database. Through a second processing thread, for each of the event objects, participant identifiers (IDs) are determined from the event object. For each of the participant IDs, a domain ID is extracted from the participant ID. A list of one or more entity objects are identified based on the domain ID, where the entity objects are stored in a second database such as a task database storing and managing many tasks. At least one attribute of at least one of the entity objects is modified based of the participant ID and the domain ID, which generates a modified entity object. Through a third processing thread, any event objects that have been modified are transmitted to the second database via a second API over the network.

  • Patent number: 10922315
    Abstract: Optimization of procedures for enterprise applications can take both declarative query statements and imperative logic into account in a unified optimization technique. An input procedure can implement complex analytical queries and also include iterative control flow logic such as loops. Alternative query execution plans for the procedure can be enumerated by moving queries out of and into loop boundaries via hoist and sink operations. Program correctness can be preserved via excluding some operations via dependency graphs. Sink subgraphs can also be used. Query inlining can also be supported, resulting in synergies that produce superior execution plans. The computing execution resource demand of the respective alternatives can be considered to arrive at an optimal query execution plan that can then be used to actually implement execution of the procedure. Execution performance can thus be greatly improved by performing counterintuitive optimizations.

  • Patent number: 10922310
    Abstract: Data retrieval can be managed in a data grid. For example, a computing device can receive a write command from a second node in the data grid, the write command being for storing a second version of data. In response to the write command, the computing device can use a database to determine that a first version of the data is to be locally served by a first node in the data grid. The computing device can then transmit a communication that causes the first node to switch from (i) locally serving the data, to (ii) obtaining and serving the second version of the data from a remote node, such as the second node. The computing device can then update the database to indicate that the second version of the data is to be locally served by the second node.

  • Patent number: 10909134
    Abstract: In accordance with an embodiment, described herein are systems and methods that enable client-side calculation with data provided at a multidimensional or other database server. Data provided at the server in accordance with a server-side model, can be transformed/prepared into a grid, for use with a client-side application, for example a client spreadsheet application. During preparation of the grid, one or more portions of the grid that are identified as client-side dynamic parameters, can be represented as dynamic formulas that are modifiable within the client-side application; while parameters of the server-side model that are outside of the grid can be represented as constant values. The grid provided to the client can be used to perform client-side calculations that allow for rapid calculations in response to changes in the client-side model, without introducing a round-trip performance lag between the client-side and server-side.

  • Patent number: 10747627
    Abstract: In a high insert throughput in a database system, the database management system (DBMS) caches, asynchronously from data insert transactions, a list of storage location identifiers for storage locations in a table space in the database system. When a request for an insert transaction with an insert size is received from an agent, the DBMS identifies a storage location on the list with an amount of free space meeting the insert size. The DBMS removes the storage location identifier from the list and returns the storage location identifier for the storage location. When the insert transaction completes, the DBMS determines a remaining free space at the storage location and adds the storage location identifier to the list according to the remaining free space. By removing storage location identifiers from the list, another agent cannot receive the same storage location identifier for a parallel task. Thus, space contention is avoided.
