  • Patent number: 11561935
    Abstract: Methods, non-transitory machine readable media, and computing devices that ensure correctness of file system analytics are disclosed. With this technology, a first generation number for a volume is incremented in response to a modification of a rule set that defines properties of objects of a file system associated with the volume. A determination is made when a second generation number in a first inode for a first one of the objects matches the first generation number. The first inode is identified based on a traversal of a directory tree associated with the file system. The modified rule set is applied to the properties for the first one of the objects to obtain values, when the second generation number fails to match the first generation number. Analytics data is output after the traversal has completed. The analytics data is generated in response to a query and is based on the values.

  • Patent number: 11556579
    Abstract: Techniques for ontology linking of unstructured text as a service are described. A service may receive a request to link unstructured text to a standardized ontology, and the service may segment and tokenize the unstructured text and send the result to multiple services implementing multiple deep machine learning models trained to identify particular entities and one or more relationships between entities. The service may perform a search of the standardized ontology to identify a set of similar candidates from the standardized ontology for the detected entities and the one or more relationships, and then rank the set of similar candidates from the standardized ontology according to their similarity to the detected entities within the unstructured text. The output from the service may include a result identifying a highest ranked candidate of the set of similar candidates from the standardized ontology for the detected entities within the unstructured text.

  • Patent number: 11537639
    Abstract: Re-Identification of physical objects in an image background is made possible by the use of temporary data objects (i.e., video cookies). Image data including an image object representing a physical object in at least one of a plurality of backgrounds is pre-stored in a database. Identification data for the image object and image background data is extracted from the image object and a comparison is made to determine if the identification data matches identification data in the database. In the event no match is found, a temporary data object is created and stored in the database that links the identification data and the image background data. If an identification data match is found, it is determined whether a temporary data object exists in the database. If no temporary data object exists, one is created and stored in the database. If a temporary data object is determined to exist in the database, it is determined whether the temporary data object fulfills a predetermined condition(s).
