  • Patent number: 11087179
    Abstract: The technology disclosed includes a system to perform multi-label support vector machine (SVM) classification of a document. The system creates document features representing frequencies or semantics of words in the document. Trained SVM classification parameters for a plurality of labels are applied to the document features for the document. The system determines positive and negative distances between SVM hyperplanes for the labels and the feature vector. Labels with positive distance to the feature vector are harvested. When the distribution of negative distances is characterized by a mean and standard deviation, the system further harvests the labels with a negative distance such that the harvested labels include the labels with a negative distance between the mean negative distance and zero and separated from the mean negative distance by a predetermined first number of standard deviations.

  • Patent number: 11074243
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments include a system for processing data. During operation, the system obtains, for a field in a data object, a set of diffs containing default values for the field and a set of mappings representing a set of conditions associated with the data object. Next, the system matches an attribute associated with an instance of the data object to a condition in the set of conditions. The system then uses the mappings to identify, in the set of diffs, a diff to be applied under the condition. Finally, the system updates the field in the instance with a default value associated with the condition by applying the diff to the instance.
