  • Patent number: 11442803
    Abstract: An approach is provided for detecting and analyzing an anomaly in application performance in a client-server connection via a network. A status code of a response sent by a server to a client, a round trip latency time (RTT) of the response, and a time out of a connection between client and server are determined. Using a k-means clustering algorithm, buckets of RTT values clustered into lower and higher values, and running counts and means for the RTT values in each bucket, an RTT value is determined to exceed a threshold value. Based on the status code, the RTT value exceeding the threshold, and the connection time out, the anomaly is detected. Based on temporal and textual analyses of log entries and an environment analysis, candidate root causes of a failure that resulted in the anomaly are determined.

  • Patent number: 11416769
    Abstract: Approaches presented herein enable intelligent service request classification and assignment learning. More specifically, a request comprising a free form text or spoken description is received from a user. The request description is parsed and classified by a regression-based classifier. The regression-based classifier classifies based on, for example: the description itself; the requestor's history of requests, and/or supplemental demographics about a requestor. Optionally, a user may verify the classification or select from a plurality of returned classifications. A service provider or administrator confirms that a classification is correct. If not, the incorrectly classified request is queued. If so, the correctly classified request is added to a set of training data to be used in classifying future requests.

  • Patent number: 11244250
    Abstract: The invention relates to a system and to a method for determining a state of a device by means of a trained support-vector machine. According to the invention, an operating parameter space is divided into classification volumes, at least one of which indicates a normal state and at least one other of which indicates a fault state of the device. A current state of the device can therefore be determined by determining where a current operating parameter point is to be arranged in the operating parameter space. The invention further relates to methods and to variants of the system in order to facilitate a cause evaluation and to determine particularly relevant operating parameters for the fault determination.

  • Patent number: 11216737
    Abstract: Recommendations for new experiments are generated via a pipeline that includes a predictive model and a preference procedure. In one example, a definition of a development task includes experiment parameters that may be varied, the outcomes of interest and the desired goals or specifications. Existing experimental data is used by machine learning algorithms to train a predictive model. The software system generates candidate experiments and uses the trained predictive model to predict the outcomes of the candidate experiments based on their parameters. A merit function (referred to as a preference function) is calculated for the candidate experiments. The preference function is a function of the experiment parameters and/or the predicted outcomes. It may also be a function of features that are derived from these quantities. The candidate experiments are ranked based on the preference function.

  • Patent number: 11205135
    Abstract: The Quanton virtual machine approximates solutions to NP-Hard problems in factorial spaces in polynomial time. The data representation and methods emulate quantum computing on classical hardware but also implement quantum computing if run on quantum hardware. The Quanton uses permutations indexed by Lehmer codes and permutation-operators to represent quantum gates and operations. A generating function embeds the indexes into a geometric object for efficient compressed representation. A nonlinear directional probability distribution is embedded to the manifold and at the tangent space to each index point is also a linear probability distribution. Simple vector operations on the distributions correspond to quantum gate operations. The Quanton provides features of quantum computing: superpositioning, quantization and entanglement surrogates. Populations of Quantons are evolved as local evolving gate operations solving problems or as solution candidates in an Estimation of Distribution algorithm.
