  • Patent number: 11914648
    Abstract: A graph refactorization method is provided, and relate to the field of communication technologies, to implement parallel graph processing with load balancing, low communication costs, and short execution time. The method includes: A first machine selects a first vertex from a local vertex set of a subgraph (S801). If a degree of the first vertex is less than or equal to a first preset threshold, the first machine fuses the first vertex and an adjacent vertex within a preset quantity of hops of the first vertex in the local vertex set into a super-vertex (S802). If the degree of the first vertex is greater than or equal to a second preset threshold, the first machine copies the first vertex to obtain N sub-vertices, and divides edges of the first vertex in the subgraph of the first machine into N parts to respectively connect to the N sub-vertices (S803).

  • Patent number: 11907228
    Abstract: Event processing techniques for updating a database in real time based on events in a continuous event stream are disclosed. The techniques can update the database to incorporate information from thousands of received events per second. The events can include metrics measuring milestones for an organizational process defined by a user. Moreover, multiple streams can include metrics from many tenants concurrently. The techniques include receiving a plurality of events corresponding to a time interval and identifying that two events share a value of a key attribute. The techniques then include causing to be generated an in-memory combined database record comprising a combination of first and second attribute information from the two events and the value of the key attribute. In response to a trigger signal, the techniques include transmitting a single message, based at least in part on the combined database record, to update the database.

  • Patent number: 11907214
    Abstract: Implementations set forth herein relate to conditionally caching responses to automated assistant queries according to certain contextual data that may be associated with each automated assistant query. Each query can be identified based on historical interactions between a user and an automated assistant, and—depending on the query, fulfillment data can be cached according to certain contextual data that influences the query response. Depending on how the contextual data changes, a cached response stored at a client device can be discarded and/or replaced with an updated cached response. For example, a query that users commonly ask prior to leaving for work can have a corresponding assistant response that depends on features of an environment of the users. This unique assistant response can be cached, before the users provide the query, to minimize latency that can occur when network or processing bandwidth is unpredictable.

  • Patent number: 11893033
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses are described in which unstructured computer text is analyzed for generation of an enforcement action database. A computing device receives a digital document comprising a corpus of unstructured text and converts each sentence into tokens. The computing device identifies entities in the tokens and classifies each sentence as relevant or not relevant to an enforcement action. For each relevant sentence, the computing device generates a record in a first data structure and generates a record in a second data structure. The computing device maps the records in the first data structure to the records in the second data structure based upon an enforcement attribute to generate a third data structure. The computing device aggregates the records in the third data structure based upon a name of the entity and a type of the entity in the sentence to determine an aggregated first enforcement attribute for each entity.

  • Patent number: 11895015
    Abstract: A packet to be forwarded over a computer network to a destination is received. A group of multiple network paths is available to forward to the packet to the destination. One or more path selection factors are determined to be used to identify a specific network load balancing algorithm to select a specific network path from the group of multiple network paths. The one or more path selection factors include at least one path selection factor determined based at least in part on a dynamic state of the computer network or a network node in the computer network. In response to selecting, by the specific network load balancing algorithm, the specific network path from among the group of multiple network paths, the packet is forwarded over the specific network path.
