  • Patent number: 11461539
    Abstract: A highlighting engine modifies a target document by identifying and highlighting a set of text passages. The highlighting engine receives a training set of data including documents that each include a set of highlighted text passages. The highlighting engine trains a machine learned model using the training set of data. The trained machine learned model, when applied to subsequent identified candidate sets of text passages within the target document, identifies the set of text passages to highlight. The highlighting engine modifies the target document with the highlighted set of text passages and provides the modified target document for display via an interface. The highlighted set of text passages enable a user to quickly read and understand the target document.

  • Patent number: 11449683
    Abstract: Disentanglement of chat utterances is provided. An analysis of the linguistic collocations and the keywords of the multiple chat utterances and amount of contribution by respective chat users of the plurality of chat users to the multiple chat utterances is performed to determine a level of drift of the linguistic collocations, the keywords, and respective chat users over a course of the multiple chat utterances. Chat utterance entanglement of prior chat utterances is determined using determined level of drift based on the analysis by inferring keyword usage over time and how these keywords are related over the course of the multiple chat utterances. The prior chat utterances related to a particular topic are disentangled by removing certain chat utterances that have a statistically significant level of drift from that particular topic. Removed chat utterances are arranged as a new chat discourse related to a different topic in the chat conversation.
