  • Patent number: 11907390
    Abstract: Discloses a method and an apparatus for visual construction of a knowledge graph system. In the present disclosure, data permission of a distributed client is determined through a central server. The central server obtains a master template of a knowledge graph system and sends it to the distributed client. The distributed client receives a natural language inputted by a user and parses to generate an abstract syntax tree. The user completes customization of a subtemplate of the knowledge graph system through visual operation. The distributed client encrypts the subtemplate and then sends it to the central server. When the knowledge graph system is to be used, any knowledge concept is inputted, the central server calls and decrypts the subtemplate and then searches a database, and a tree structure knowledge graph is generated and sent to the distributed client.

  • Patent number: 11868445
    Abstract: A central asset registry and associated satellite registries tie Digital Asset Management (DAM) repositories and satellite repositories into a unified enterprise system. The system removes rights and asset relationship tracking from the DAMs and the satellites by gathering asset metadata tags and capturing digital asset rights and relationships between assets to improve speed, scalability, and flexibility in analyzing and traversing networks of rights and relationships of digital assets. The central asset registry and the satellite registries use a pluggable architecture and track and store multi-dimensional relationships as an asset hierarchy. The asset hierarchy and rights model depicts rights and relationship data between the assets and provides a flexible array of asset types and properties for addition of new assets, new asset types, and new rights without re-factoring the other data, nodes, and edges. The system uses asset metadata to create edge relationships between the assets.

  • Patent number: 11843687
    Abstract: Remote terminals are configured to generate ciphertexts from plaintext polynomials. Each ciphertext corresponds to a plaintext polynomial bound to a message space of a polynomial-based fully homomorphic cryptographic scheme. At least one server is configured to receive ciphertexts via a network from the plurality of remote terminals. The server performs a multiplication operation and an addition operation on the ciphertexts to obtain resultant ciphertexts. The multiplication operation includes performing a bitwise decomposition function on a ciphertext to obtain a bitwise decomposed ciphertext. The bitwise decomposition function maps a multi-bit data type to a sequence of bits. The multiplication operation further includes performing matrix multiplication on the bitwise decomposed ciphertext and a data element belonging to a set of data elements. Message filters, data search engines, and other applications are discussed.
