  • Patent number: 10409931
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for automatic combination of sub-process simulation results with dataset selection based on a fitness under one or more specific scenarios. An exemplary method comprises obtaining an execution map for each sub-process in a sequence that stores results of a given sub-process execution. The results comprise a scenario, a distribution and a distribution fitness value. In response to a user query regarding a target feature and an initial dataset, initial dataset are combined with results selected from the execution map for a first sub-process in the sequence; each available dataset from the previous sub-processes in the sequence is combined with results selected from the execution map for the next sub-process; a probability distribution function (pdf) for the target feature is composed from a combined dataset that represents a simulation of the process and combines results of each of sub-process in the sequence; and the pdf is processed to answer the user query for the target feature.

  • Patent number: 10409817
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are provided for domain-tailored detection of outliers, patterns, and/or events in data streams. An exemplary method comprises obtaining a domain-dependent definition of (i) data outliers based on predefined outlier criteria; (ii) data patterns based on predefined pattern criteria; and/or (iii) data events based on predefined event criteria; obtaining time series measurement data from a plurality of sensors; determining, substantially simultaneously with the obtaining, whether individual samples satisfy the domain-dependent definitions of the data outliers, data patterns and/or data events; and storing the individual samples with an indication of whether the individual samples satisfy the domain-dependent definitions of the data outliers, data patterns and/or data events. The domain-dependent definitions are optionally specified using a declarative command language.

  • Patent number: 10387588
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are provided for automatic combination of sub-process simulation results and heterogeneous data sources. An exemplary method comprises obtaining, for a process comprised of a sequence of a plurality of sub-processes, an identification of relevant input and output features for each sub-process; obtaining an execution map for each sub-process, wherein each execution map stores results of an execution of a given sub-process; and, in response to a user query regarding a target feature and a user-provided initial scenario: composing a probability distribution function for the target feature representing a simulation of the process based on a sequence of the execution maps, by matching input features of each execution map with features from the initial scenario or the output of previous execution maps; and processing the probability distribution function to answer the user query.

  • Patent number: 10169359
    Abstract: Distributed content-aware compression and decompression techniques are provided for data, such as seismic data. Data is compressed by obtaining a file chunk of a plurality of file chunks of a larger file, a start offset of the file chunk, and a data descriptor indicating how the file chunk should be processed based on characteristics of the larger file. Headers in the file chunk are compressed using a substantially lossless header compression technique to obtain compressed headers. Samples in the file chunk are compressed using a substantially lossless sample compression technique to obtain compressed samples. The compressed headers and compressed samples are packed into a single bit stream comprising a compressed version of the file chunk. The compression can be performed in a physical or logical layer of storage nodes of a file system or in compute nodes of a computing cluster. The compression can be executed on demand by an external agent and/or in a background mode by a storage operating system.

  • Patent number: 9501810
    Abstract: This disclosure is directed to a touchless interactive environment. An input device may be configured to capture electronic images corresponding to physical objects detectable within a physical three-dimensional region. A computer system may establish a virtual three-dimensional region mapped to the physical three-dimensional region, with the virtual three-dimensional region defining a space where a plurality of virtual objects are instantiated based on the plurality of electronic images. The computer system may select a virtual object from the plurality of virtual objects as one or more commanding objects, with the one or more commanding objects indicating a command of a graphical user interface to be performed based on a position of the one or more commanding objects. The computer system may then perform the command of the graphical user interface based on the position of the one or more commanding objects.

  • Patent number: 9337863
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are provided for rational compression of numbers. One or more numbers are compressed by obtaining a plurality of numbers (e.g., integer numbers and/or floating point numbers), wherein each of the plurality of numbers is represented using zero or more bits to indicate an exponent at a given base of the given number and has a length representing a number of significant bits of the given number; for each of the plurality of numbers, obtaining a pair of values comprised of the length and the exponent and counting occurrences of the pair; generating a Huffman encoding comprising at least one Huffman tree based on the counting of the occurrences; generating one or more encoding maps comprising an array mapping each of the pair to a corresponding Huffman prefix code; and encoding at least one of the plurality of numbers using the one or more encoding maps.

  • Publication number: 20130097563
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a multiple-dimension-data-organization method. More specifically, this method uses an n-dimensional cube (M-cube) in which each face displays the data on a 2-D planar surface and in which the x and y axes may be changed in accordance with the user's request. More specifically still, the data to be viewed may be easily changed by the user by means of a simple rotation command using a touch-sensitive interface.
