  • Patent number: 11989170
    Abstract: Apparatuses and methods are provided and applied to graphically represent the history of changes to a datastore maintaining a plurality of datastore records, each datastore record of the plurality of datastore records comprising at least one sector, as a directed acyclic graph to facilitate making, undoing, and redoing independent changes without regard to any explicit branching structure. Current records store content, a log directed acyclic graph relates various changes, and a current change record mapping relates each sector of each datastore record to a respective current change record. Changes by users requiring moderation are independently overlayed upon changes visible to additional users, with changes being approved and conflicting changes being resolved by administrating users.

  • Patent number: 11886523
    Abstract: Techniques for training and/or using a machine learning (ML) algorithm to generate search results are disclosed. An ML algorithm is configured (i) to identify a search starting event and a search terminating event for a search session, where the search session includes multiple navigations across multiple different webpages, and (ii) to derive a dynamic score for the search session, where the dynamic score reflects whether the search session successfully identified an end result that was initially unknown at a time when the search starting event occurred. The trained ML algorithm can then be used during later search sessions to promote better search results and help users identify end targets or results in a faster and more intuitive manner.

  • Patent number: 11841845
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes techniques of providing data consistency for hybrid transactional and analytical processing. Logical logs and log serial numbers (LSNs) associated with the logical logs may be generated based on data captured by a first processing engine. The logical logs and the LSNs may be propagated to a storage subsystem configured to be in communication with the first processing engine and a second processing engine. The LSNs and information indicative of LSN schema versions may be stored and distributed by a metadata service. The first processing engine, the second processing engine, the storage subsystem and the metadata service are modularized, and support a LSN mechanism for maintaining data consistency.

  • Patent number: 11841904
    Abstract: A method and system are provided for non-redundant detection of coactively linked nodes/data elements of a network or database topologically disposed in at least one triangularly linked arrangement. The network/database is topologically modelled as a graph having a plurality of vertices connected by edges. A neighborhood is generated in computer readable form for each connected vertex containing all other vertices directly connected thereto as neighbors. Connected vertex are ordered according to degree based on the number of neighbors. A reduced neighborhood is formed for each connected vertex by adaptively removing any lower order neighbor. Triangle neighborhoods are generated responsive to forward detections of common triangle neighbors through pairwise comparisons of reduced neighborhoods for connected vertices and each of their higher order neighbors, and reverse detection for certain connected vertices as triangle neighbors by lower ordered neighbors.

  • Patent number: 11816158
    Abstract: A shard of a selected document is identified. A hierarchy of documents including the selected document are to be tagged with metadata in a data store of a search engine so that the related documents are queryable by the metadata using the search engine. The shard specifies a location of the related documents within the data store of the search engine. For each related document, a tagging operation is generated within a script, the tagging operation specifying the metadata, the shard, an identifier of the related document, and an identifier of the selected document. The script including the generated tagging operation for each related document is transmitted to the search engine to execute to tag the related documents in the data store with the metadata and with the selected document as a source of the metadata.
