  • Patent number: 11750488
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, a computer program product, and a computer system for minimizing latency in an infrastructure. One or more servers receive a request of deploying a new extract, load, and transform (ELT) logic. One or more servers analyze the new ELT logic to identify source and target locations, analyze logs of existing ELT logics, identify physical locations of infrastructure resources, and identify available physical spaces for moving the infrastructure resources close to each other. One or more servers determine infrastructure resources that need to be moved so that round trip network communication of the new ELT logic are optimized, based on the physical locations of the infrastructure resources, the available physical spaces, and parameters identified through analysis of existing ELT logics. One or more servers move the infrastructure resources that need to be moved.

  • Patent number: 11736309
    Abstract: A meeting application server and a method for real-time content of interest detection and notification for a meeting are described herein. The meeting application server includes a processor and a computer-readable storage medium operatively coupled to the processor. The computer-readable storage medium includes computer-executable instructions that cause the processor to receive, via a remote computing system, content of interest data for a meeting. The computer-executable instructions also cause the processor to analyze the content of interest data to determine a theme of interest for the meeting, train a classification model for the theme of interest, and generate real-time meeting data for the meeting. The computer-executable instructions further cause the processor to determine the probability that the real-time meeting data relate to the theme of interest using the classification model and, if the probability exceeds a threshold value, transmit a content of interest alert to the remote computing system.

  • Patent number: 11716303
    Abstract: A different combination of multiple portions of a content item is selected for display to each of multiple sets of users of an online messaging application. The different combination of portions of the content item is sent for display to the corresponding set of users within a user interface of the online messaging application in association with information identifying a set of message threads in which each user is participating. A request to view the entire content of the content item is then received from a subset of each of the sets of users and a performance metric associated with each combination of portions of the content item is tracked based on the received request. Based on the performance metric, a performance of each portion of the content item is evaluated and used to select an optimal combination of the portions of the content item.

  • Patent number: 11706314
    Abstract: A coordinated network service that facilitates the design and implementation of a coordinated device network of IoT devices. The coordinated network service defines modules for individual IoT devices or coordinated devices that specify the necessary inputs to the device, the outputs from the device and communication protocols. Via an interface, user devices can select a set of IoT devices and specify how they are connected and the decision making logic associated with communication flow. The coordinated network service can then automatically generate mapping information that implements the decision making logic and provides necessary transformations for communications between the specified devices. The selected modules and mappings form a workflow for the coordinated device network. The coordinated network service can then generate executable code to implement the formed workflow in a coordinated device network.
