  • Patent number: 10073873
    Abstract: A method of dynamically computing an optimal materialization schedule for each column in a column oriented RDBMS. Dynamic column-specific materialization scheduling in a distributed column oriented RDBMS is optimized by choosing a materialization strategy based on execution cost including central processing unit (CPU), disk, and network costs for each individual exchange operator. The dynamic programming approach is computationally feasible because the optimal schedule for a sub-plan is path independent.

  • Patent number: 10061816
    Abstract: A system and method are disclosed for providing metric recommendations by a cloud event log analytics system. The log analytics system includes a user interface which allows users to view metric recommendations, view, modify, annotate, delete, or create log metrics. In a first embodiment, centroid vectors are created from metadata associated with user access of log metrics. The centroid vectors are compared to metrics vectors created from log metrics and the results are ranked and provided to users as metric recommendations. In a second embodiment, classification rules are inferred for metric matrix tables containing metadata about log metric usage. Classification rules are assigned to a decision tree used to calculate composite probabilities of interest of log metrics. A recommendation matrix incorporate the composite probabilities of interest to predict the degree of interest an analytics user may have in a log metric for a given role.

  • Patent number: 10055455
    Abstract: An approach is provided for aggregating business data. Based on received columns, attributes, and keys of a dataset, the dataset is registered in a central hub of datasets which include data that is independently and locally maintained. Other datasets in the central hub that include columns, attributes, or keys that match the received columns, attributes, or keys, respectively, are determined and displayed. Responsive to receiving a user selection of one or more of the displayed datasets, cross-links between the dataset and each of the one or more selected datasets are generated. Based on a modification of a selected one of the cross-links and a second user interacting with the central hub, the modification and other cross-link(s) are displayed. Based on the second user's selection of the modification or one of the other cross-link(s), an analysis of data in the dataset is performed.

  • Patent number: 10042923
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide a system for processing data. During operation, the system obtains a set of clauses in a first set of content items comprising unstructured data. Next, the system obtains a set of stop words comprising high-frequency words that occur in a second set of content items. The system then automatically extracts a set of topics from the set of clauses by generating a set of n-grams from the set of clauses and excluding a first n-gram in the set of n-grams from the set of topics when the first n-gram contains a word in the set of stop words in a pre-specified position of the first n-gram. Finally, the system displays the set of topics to a user to improve understanding of the first set of content items by the user without requiring the user to manually analyze the first set of content items.

  • Patent number: 10031983
    Abstract: System, computer implemented method and computer program product for preparing and navigating a query tree including a plurality of query nodes and informational nodes. Each query node is associated with a prompt, branching criteria and keywords. A current query node provides a prompt to a user and a user response is received and analyzed to identify branching criteria and keywords from the user response. The method navigates to another node in the query tree in consideration of the branching criteria received in the user response and a comparison between the keywords received in the user response and the keywords associated with the query nodes. The comparison may validate navigation to a destination node corresponding to the branching criteria or the comparison may indicate incorrect navigation of the query tree. Corrective navigation can be implemented in various ways based upon the keywords received in the user response.
