  • Patent number: 11971870
    Abstract: Systems and methods for generating tables using data associated with records. For example, a system may store the data associated with the record in one or more databases. The system may then generate tables associated with fields of the record, where the tables indicate updates and/or changes to the fields. For instance, when changes are made to a field of the record, the system may update the table to indicate the changes, times at which the changes occurred, identifiers of users that made the changes, reasons for the changes, and/or so forth. The system may further update a version of the record when updates and/or changes are made to the fields. Furthermore, the system may update the tables to indicate versions of the record when the updates and/or changes occurred to the fields.

  • Patent number: 11970435
    Abstract: Provided are embodiments of creatine and creatine ethyl ester (CEE) salts where the anion is an artificial (non-saccharide) taste-modifier. These compounds represent stable white non-hygroscopic solids or semisolids that can readily dissolve in water and buffer solutions. Synthesis of novel creatine salts using environmentally safe solvents such as ethanol resulted in the formation of products in quantitative yields with sodium or potassium chloride as a byproduct. The creatine and creatine alkyl eater derivative salts are stable sweet-tasting compounds that are more palatable to a consumer than creatine or derivatives thereof.

  • Patent number: 11934439
    Abstract: Methods, computer systems and computer program product are provided for retrieving contextually relevant documents in near real time. When text data it's received from an application, the text data is processed through a text segmentation model to generate a set of documents. Each document corresponds to a segment of the text data. A first vector representation is generated for a first document of the set of documents. A machine learning process compares the first vector representation and a set of vector representations for a set of documents within a data repository to determine a subset of the documents. A composite rank is generated for each respective document of the subset. The subset of documents is then presented through an interface, sorted according to the respective composite ranks.

  • Patent number: 11914657
    Abstract: Machine-learning-aided automatic taxonomy for web data. In an embodiment, a training dataset of annotated features is used to train a model to predict a class in a taxonomy of web-based activities. The features may be derived from a uniform resource locator (URL) of an online resource and associated metadata. During operation, the features may be extracted from the URL and metadata of each activity record in web data. The trained model may be applied to the extracted features for each activity record to predict a class within the taxonomy. The predicted taxonomic class may be stored in association with the URL that was extracted from the activity record to produce a taxonomized URL.

  • Patent number: 11907220
    Abstract: A method, system and computer program product for processing queries in a hybrid database system. A database management system of the hybrid database system obtains an estimated execution time of a query by an online transaction processing engine. The database management system further obtains an estimated execution time of the query by a database accelerator. Furthermore, the database management system determines a wait time (which could be zero) for the database accelerator to process the query. The database management system then determines whether the online transaction processing engine or the database accelerator will process the query using the estimated execution time of the query by the online transaction processing engine, the estimated execution time of the query by the database accelerator and the wait time (which could be zero) for the database accelerator to process the query. In this manner, the processing of queries in hybrid database systems is optimized.

  • Patent number: 11904050
    Abstract: A Cannabis juice purée is packaged using high pressure processing (HPP). First, a Cannabis juice purée is formed by collecting raw Cannabis material and blending the raw Cannabis material together with a thickening agent and a sweetening agent. Next, the Cannabis juice purée is deposited into a container and the container is processed using HPP. In HPP, the Cannabis juice purée is loaded into a high-pressure chamber filled with pressure transmitting fluid, such as water. The pressure is applied to the Cannabis juice purée. A lid is used to seal the opening of the container. HPP allows the mixture to be pasteurized without applying heat. HPP extends the shelf life of the Cannabis juice purée to several weeks to months without applying heat that could undesirably decarboxylating the cannabinoids present in the Cannabis juice purée. Shelf life is preserved while providing a liquid beverage form of Cannabis juice purée.

  • Patent number: 11868380
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for hierarchical categorical and sub-categorical topic modeling allowing, in response to a query in natural language, a set of results to be determined which are both semantically relevant to the user and diverse, by containing information complementary or adjacent to that of the query. Such a paradigm permits exploration and discovery of new topics and ideas in large collections of documents. In some embodiments, one or more non-negative matrix factorization (“NMF”) algorithms are applied in determining a hierarchical topic model including the semantically-related categories and sub-categories. The dataset may include authorized social media data collection, and machine learning techniques can optimize the generation of the topic model and/or the search results.
