  • Patent number: 11074274
    Abstract: A method of complementary clustering of a vast population of objects is disclosed. The method aims at maximizing a global measure of object affinity within naturally-formed clusters. A first clustering procedure produces primary centroids of clusters of objects and a second clustering procedure produces secondary clusters of the primary centroids and corresponding secondary centroids. Refined clusters of the population of objects are formed based on object proximity to the secondary centroids. The first clustering procedure is preferably based on a variation of the K-means method, and the second clustering procedure is preferably based on the Density-Based Spatial Clustering of Applications with Noise (DBSCAN). An apparatus implementing the method is devised to facilitate conflict-free parallel processing.

  • Patent number: 11068537
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media for partition segmenting in a distributed time-series database are disclosed. A first host receives a request to store a data element in a tile comprising linked segments including a head segment and a tail segment. The head and tail segments are associated with the same spatial and temporal boundaries, and the data element is within those boundaries. The first host determines that the data element is not stored in the head segment and forwards the data element to a next segment of the tile. An additional host receives a request to store the data element in the tail segment. The additional host determines that the data element is not stored in the tail segment and then stores the data element in the tail segment.

  • Patent number: 11036686
    Abstract: A method, system and computer program product for data deduplication in a travel and transportation data processing system includes loading into memory for comparison from a database of a multiplicity of multi-field records, a pair of two different multi-field records and submitting the pair to a similarity model that correlates a companion passenger with a specified individual so as to indicate a probability of duplication whenever the companion passenger appears in a pair of records submitted to the model for comparison. Thereafter, if the model produces a high probability, the pair is automatically merged into a single record without manual intervention, but if the model produces a medium probability, the pair is placed in a queue pending manual intervention and manual merging, and if the similarity model produces a low probability, the pair is omitted from consideration of merging. Finally, the process repeats for each other pair of different multi-field records in the database.

  • Patent number: 11036756
    Abstract: Techniques related to an in-memory key-value store for a multi-model database are disclosed. In an embodiment, a relational database may be maintained on persistent storage. The relational database may be managed by a database server and may include a database table. The database table may be stored in a persistent format. Key-value records may be generated within volatile memory accessible to the database server by converting data in the database table to a key-value format. The key-value format may be different from and independent of the persistent format. A database statement referencing the database table may be executed based on determining whether to access one or more key-value records in the volatile memory or to access the data in the database table. In response to determining to access the one or more key-value records, the database server may access the one or more key-value records in the volatile memory.

  • Patent number: 11017009
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided herein for automatically arranging media assets that are contextually related to a requested media asset for access prior to a start time of the requested media asset. In some embodiments, user input circuitry may receive a user request to access a media asset. Control circuitry may identify, by consulting a database, a first set of media assets that share a context with the requested media asset and were released prior to the release date of the requested media asset. Control circuitry may determine a subset of media assets of the first set of media assets by performing a comparison of each media asset of the first set of the media assets against a viewing history of the user. Control circuitry may access a user profile to determine a user constraint, and generate a recommendation for display based on a first aspect of the user constraint.

  • Patent number: 10990601
    Abstract: In various embodiments, when a search query for certain products in an electronic catalog is received, a group of related products that are responsive to the search query may be identified. The product variants may be defined by one or more attributes. Each attribute may have one or more attribute values. The product variants may be first classified according to an attribute. One or more representative classes may be selected from the classes, for example, based on sales data (or other metric) and/or meaningful differentiation between the classes. Then a representative product variant from each class may be selected and returned as search results in response to the search query. In some embodiments, selection of the representative product variant from each class may be based on one or more factors, such as sales data, the particular customer's purchase or browsing history, cost, the search query, availability, among others.
