  • Publication number: 20210374360
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses are described in which unstructured computer text is analyzed for generation of customized digital documents. A server tokenizes and encodes historical user interactions and historical digital documents into multidimensional vectors. The server trains an interaction classification model using the multidimensional vectors as input to generate a classification for an input user interaction, and trains a language generation model using the multidimensional vectors as input to generate a customized digital document based upon an input user interaction. The server receives a new user interaction and encodes the new user interaction into a new multidimensional vector. The server executes the trained interaction classification model using the new vector as input to generate a digital document classification. The server executes the trained language generation model using the new vector and the classification as input to generate a customized digital document.

    Abstract: Creating vendor-neutral data protection operations for vendors' application resources is described. Capabilities specified for data protection operations by a vendor of an application are input from a host of the application. Any capabilities specified for the data protection operations are used to create a vendor-neutral version of a data protection operation for a resource of the application. The vendor-neutral version of the data protection operation for the application resource is output to the host. A result of performing the vendor-neutral version of the data protection operation on the application resource is input from the host.

  • Patent number: 11119150
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are disclosed for programming reconfigurable logic devices such as FPGAs in a multi-tenant server environment. In one example, a computing host includes one or more processors configured to execute a supervisor process and two or more user processes and a single FPGA integrated circuit configured into a plurality of partitions. The partitions include a host logic partition that is accessible only to the supervisor process executing on the computing host, and two or more accelerator partitions. Each of the accelerator partitions is configured to include a virtual debug unit with a logic analyzer that collects logic signals generated by logic within the respective accelerator partition and sends debug data indicating values of the logic signals to one of the user processes. In some examples, the host logic partitions and/or the accelerator partitions can be independently reprogrammed of each other within their respective portions of the single FPGA.
