  • Patent number: 10114710
    Abstract: Application-level replication, the synchronization of data updates within a cluster of application servers, may be provided by having application servers themselves synchronize all updates to multiple redundant databases, precluding the need for database-level replication. This may be accomplished by first sending a set of database modifications requested by the transaction to a first database. Then a message may be placed in one or more message queues, the message indicating the objects inserted, updated, or deleted in the transaction. Then a commit command may be sent to the first database. The set of database modifications and a commit command may then be sent to a second database. This allows for transparent synchronization of the databases and quick recovery from a database failure, while imposing little performance or network overhead.

  • Patent number: 10108632
    Abstract: Methods and systems for a distributed transaction in a distributed database system are described. One example includes identifying a request to insert a split point in a source group comprising one or more tablet replicas, each tablet including at least a portion of data from a table in the distributed database system, and the split point splitting data in the source group into a first range and a second range different than the first range; in response to the request: sending a list of filenames in the first range of the source group to a first target group comprising one or more tablet replicas; and creating, at the first target group, a virtual copy of files represented by the list of filenames in the first range, the virtual copy making data of the files available, each using a new name, without duplicating the data of the files.

  • Patent number: 10095793
    Abstract: Methods and systems may involve storing device-specific user preference data to a local device and receiving a real-time request from a remote device. One or more user coefficients may be used to filter the device-specific user preference data in response to the request. In one example, the user preference data includes keyword data and the filtered keyword data is used to discover and present information to the user via the remote device.

  • Patent number: 10089395
    Abstract: In response to a web client request for access to the original content of an origin website, a content integration server intercepts, modifies the request to designate itself as the requester, and forwards the request to the website. The server receives responsive original content from the website and uses processing instructions to transform the original content by discarding content, modifying the content or supplementing the content by seamlessly integrating third party non-original content, such as consumer reviews and the like, with the responsive original content to respond to the web client request.

  • Patent number: 10083178
    Abstract: A first collection of content that includes digital assets is maintained on a host computer. Based on a determination that a portable media device becomes connected to a client computer that is separate from the host computer and that interacts with the host computer, initiation of a synchronization of the first collection of content resident on the host computer with a second collection of content on the portable media device is automatically triggered. The synchronization of the first collection with the second collection includes a transfer of at least one of the digital assets from the host computer to the client computer to the portable media device and is triggered and conditioned upon the determination that the portable media device has become connected to the client computer.

  • Patent number: 10061803
    Abstract: In a processing method, a processing apparatus receives a dataset and a key identifying processing on the dataset from an input apparatus, and inputs the received dataset and key to an update reception apparatus; the update reception apparatus identifies an accumulation apparatus for accumulating the dataset, based on the key, and transmits an update request containing the dataset and key to the accumulation apparatus; the accumulation apparatus stores the dataset and the key in association with each other when receiving the update request; the accumulation apparatus acquires the dataset stored in association with the key and transmits the acquired dataset to the processing apparatus; and if the dataset from the accumulation apparatus satisfies a dataset condition required for the processing for the key, the processing apparatus performs the processing for the key on the acquired dataset and outputs the resultant dataset to a reference apparatus.

  • Patent number: 10055771
    Abstract: Personal companions crowd-source and/or crowd-share characterizations, and optionally raw data, from real-world, virtual and/or mixed-reality experiences. Characterizations can advantageously be stored in one or more self-evolving, structured databases, and can be organized according to objects, actions, events and thoughts. Characterizations can be weighted differently for different users, and “forgotten” over time, especially in favor of maintaining higher level characterizations. Personal companions can be used to obtain additional information, and conduct interpersonal, commercial, or other interactions or transactions.

  • Patent number: 10055429
    Abstract: Generation of a schema of a NoSQL type database, where a set of entry(ies) of a NoSQL type database can be determined, and the record schema is a treelike relationship between key hierarchies with a key as a node in the entry, wherein the key corresponds to an attribute name. For at least one record schema, a node in which there is an attribute name variation is determined based on a similarity of sub-nodes in the treelike relationship, and the record schema is updated according to the determined result. The schema of the NoSQL type database is generated based on the updated record schema.

  • Patent number: 10025801
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a software system automatically generates a fully functional user interface (UI) based upon any underlying schema within a relational database management system (RDBMS). The UI derives from an automated interrogation of the schema, and comprises all mode displays (e.g., browse, search, edit, add) for all tables, along with integrated mechanisms for representing, navigating and managing relationships across tables. It utilizes a hierarchical “context stack” for suspending the working state of a particular table while “drilling down” to work with related-table information and (potentially) return relevant changes to the base table. The UI presentation resolves cross-table relationships so as to supplant internal key fields from the primary table with corresponding descriptive fields derived from the related tables.

  • Patent number: 10019493
    Abstract: A related information presentation device is designed to communicate client terminals so as to search and present users with useful content information unanticipated by users with reference to a plurality of indirectly related content information which is not directly related to each other but which is assumed to be indirectly related to each other through the same relevant content information. Upon receiving a search expression input by each user of a client terminal, the related information presentation device searches specific content information so as to automatically extract indirectly related content information, correlated to the specific content information, from among a plurality of indirectly related content information.

  • Patent number: 9996549
    Abstract: A system and method for constructing a file system based on aggregated metadata from disparate sources is described. The system scans basic attributes of files in a file system, extended attributes of the files in the file system, and application-specific attributes of files that are managed by corresponding applications in the file system. The system generates an aggregate metadata library for the corresponding files based on the basic attributes, extended attributes, and application-specific attributes and builds a unified file system based on the aggregate metadata library.
