  • Publication number: 20230289154
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and devices are described for enabling a user to import a library into a computer program under development. The library includes a data storage interface, one or more semantic objects, and one or more data manipulation or data analysis operations. A user is able to reference code of the library within the computer program under development to generate a dataset from data obtained via the data storage interface and associate the one or more semantic objects with the dataset to generate a semantically-annotated dataset. Systems, methods, and devices enable, based on the importing: the user to invoke a semantic-guided operation of the library that utilizes the semantically-annotated dataset to infer an aspect of a data manipulation or data analysis operation to be performed on the semantically-annotated dataset; or the suggestion of a data manipulation or data analysis operation to the user based on the semantically-annotated dataset.

  • Publication number: 20230221896
    Abstract: Performance degradation of an application that is caused by another computing process that shares infrastructure with the application is detected. The application and the other computing device may execute via different virtual machines hosted on the same computing device. To detect the performance degradation that is attributable to the other computing process, certain storage segments of a data storage (e.g., a cache) shared by the virtual machines is written with data. A pattern of read operations are then performed on the segments to determine whether an increase in read access time has occurred. Such a performance degradation is attributable to another computing process. After detecting the degradation, a metric that quantifies the detected degradation attributable to the other computing process is provided to an ML model, which determines the actual performance of the application absent the degradation attributable to the other computing process.
