  • Patent number: 11514110
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes searching, by machine learning logic of a computer, a flight schedule database for one or more flight schedule records related to flight preference information specified by a user. The machine learning logic is trained with training data that includes flight schedules selected by passengers and flight preference information associated with the passengers. The method further includes responsive to locating the one or more flight schedule records, communicating, by the computer, flight schedules associated with the one or more flight schedule records to a terminal associated with the user. The method includes receiving, from the terminal, a booking indication associated with a particular flight schedule of the flight schedules and updating the training data to associate the particular flight schedule with the flight preference information specified by the user.

  • Patent number: 11467914
    Abstract: A method and system for migrating data and metadata from a first backup system to a second backup system via a content staging system is disclosed. The system accesses the backup data from the first backup system and restores it, along with the associated metadata, to a staging system. A metadata file is created at the staging system which comprises of the metadata that is to be migrated to the second backup system. The system then migrates the data from the staging system to the second backup system. The metadata is also migrated to the second backup system in a format such that it can be indexed. As a result, the migrated data can be browsed and searched based on one or more search criteria based on the associated metadata. Other details are provided herein.

  • Patent number: 11468025
    Abstract: A tree structure represents a terrain area as nested polygons organized in a parent-child relationship, each polygon associated to a specific geographic location. The tree structure defines at least one parent node and a plurality of child nodes, some being leaf nodes containing a height value. A processor uses a distance measure to change the tree structure topology assessing whether all leaf node children of a first parent node lie outside a predetermined distance from an aircraft runway, and if so, converting the first parent node into a leaf node by storing in the first parent node a height value representing the greatest of the respective height values of the leaf node children and by removing the leaf node children; and iteratively repeating for each remaining parent node until it has been determined that every remaining parent node in the data structure cannot be pruned without violating accuracy requirements.

  • Patent number: 11461301
    Abstract: In an approach for database index optimization, a processor detects a pattern of characters and numeric digits of an index key. The index key provides an access to a database through an index access without a sorting operation. A processor determines a converting format based on the pattern of the index key. The pattern includes a string of the numeric digits. A processor converts the index key into a converted key by converting the string of the numeric digits into an integer. A processor saves the converted key into a storage.

  • Patent number: 11461281
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for utilizing a log to free pages from persistent memory. A log is maintained to comprise a list of page block numbers of pages within persistent memory of a node to free. A page block number, of a page, within the log is identified for processing. A reference count, corresponding to a number of references to the page block number, is identified. In response to the reference count being greater than 1, the reference count is decremented and the page block number is removed from the log. In response to the reference count being 1, the page is freed from the persistent memory and the page block number is removed from the log.

  • Patent number: 11423064
    Abstract: A system and method is presented that extracts snippets form web pages according to specially designed logic. The extracted snippets might be made relevant to, i.e., indexed by, a location and time/day applicability. Such snippets may be thought of as apps or services that are defined only when a mobile terminal is in a pre-defined geographical area at a certain time and day (e.g., as defined by a calendar of events). Extracted snippets are stored and made searchable. Methods and a system are described to control the display of snippet search results. Snippets may be selected by user or by programmed logic and executed on the mobile terminal or in remote servers without the need to download the app or source code associated with the snippet.

  • Patent number: 11403273
    Abstract: Within hash tables, bitmask(s) may be used to determine whether a given key is part of a collision chain or otherwise contained within the hash table. In some instances, using bitmask(s) may avoid linearly probing an entirety of the collision chain. For example, bitmask(s) may be used when searching low hit rate hash tables or hash tables where misses predominantly occur. Upon locating a collision chain within the hash table, or when probing the collision chain, the bitmask(s) may indicate whether subsequent keys within the collision chain correspond to the given key. The bitmask(s) may represent subsequent keys within the collision chain, and therefore, comparing the given key with the bitmask(s) may indicate similarities therebetween for use in determining whether to search a remainder of the collision chain.

  • Patent number: 11379431
    Abstract: A system for write optimization in transactional data management systems is described. The system stores a tree data structure that comprises a root, a plurality of internal nodes, and a plurality of leaf nodes. Each internal node comprises a pivot key and a child pointer. Each leaf node stores key-value pairs sorted by a corresponding key. The system forms a plurality of hybrid nodes. The hybrid nodes comprise a layer of internal nodes that are immediate parents of the plurality of leaf nodes. A buffer is formed only for each internal node of the plurality of hybrid nodes. The buffer is used to store a message that encodes an operation. The message is to be applied to the corresponding leaf nodes of the plurality of hybrid nodes.

  • Patent number: 11379476
    Abstract: Techniques are described for storing and maintaining, in a materialized view, bitmap data that represents a bitmap of each possible distinct value of an expression and rewriting a query for a count of distinct values of the expression using the materialized view. The materialized view contains bitmap data that represents a bitmap of each possible distinct value of a first expression, and aggregate values of additional expressions, and is stored in memory or on disk by a database system. The database system receives a query that requests a number of distinct values, of the first expression, and an aggregate value for an additional expression. In response, the database system, rewrites the query to: compute the number of distinct values by counting the bits in the bitmap data of the materialized view that are set to the first value, and obtains the aggregate value for the additional expression in the materialized view.

  • Patent number: 11354329
    Abstract: A system for mining of real-time data from non-production environments (e.g., test and development environments). The data that is mined/extracted is “live” data that reflects instantaneous changes, modifications, to the data. In addition, since embodiments of the present invention provide users/testers with a “live” real-time view of the mined data, the data is stored in temporary storage/non-cache memory as opposed to permanent storage (i.e., cache memory). As a result, once the user/tester consumes the data (i.e., modifies, changes or otherwise conditions the data), the data is deleted from the temporary/non-cache storage location. Thus, embodiments of the invention eliminate the need to provide for and maintain a large database for permanent storage of mined test data.
