  • Patent number: 10863329
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, systems, and articles of manufacture for conditional classifier chaining in a constrained machine learning environment are disclosed. An example apparatus includes a classification controller to select a first model to be utilized to classify a first feature identified from sensor data. A memory controller is to copy the first model to a memory. A machine learning processor is to apply the first model to the first feature to create a first classification output, the first classification output indicating an identified class. The classification controller is to, in response to a determination that the first classification output identifies a second model to be used for classification, instruct the memory controller to load the second model into the memory. The machine learning processor is to apply the second model to the second feature to create a second classification output.

  • Publication number: 20200169579
    Abstract: A metric value is determined for each event in a set of events that characterizes a computational communication or object. For example, a metric value could include a length of a URL or agent string in the event. A subset criterion is generated, such that metric values within the subset are relatively separated from a population's center (e.g., within a distribution tail). Application of the criterion to metric values produces a subset. A representation of the subset is presented in an interactive dashboard. The representation can include unique values in the subset and counts of corresponding event occurrences. Clients can select particular elements in the representation to cause more detail to be presented with respect to individual events corresponding to specific values in the subset. Thus, clients can use their knowledge system operations and observance of value frequencies and underlying events to identify anomalous metric values and potential security threats.

  • Patent number: 10657955
    Abstract: Described herein are systems and methods to identify and address sources of bias in an end-to-end speech model. In one or more embodiments, the end-to-end model may be a recurrent neural network with two 2D-convolutional input layers, followed by multiple bidirectional recurrent layers and one fully connected layer before a softmax layer. In one or more embodiments, the network is trained end-to-end using the CTC loss function to directly predict sequences of characters from log spectrograms of audio. With optimized recurrent layers and training together with alignment information, some unwanted bias induced by using purely forward only recurrences may be removed in a deployed model.

  • Publication number: 20200153714
    Abstract: A system and computer-implemented is provided for displaying a configurable metric relating to an environment in a graphical display along with a value of the metric calculated over a configurable time period. The metric is used to identify events of interest in the environment based on processing real time machine data from one or more sources. The configurable metric is selected and a corresponding value is calculated based on the events of interest over the configurable time period. The value of the metric may be continuously updated in real time based on receiving additional real-time machine data and displayed in a graphical interface as time progresses. Statistical trends in the value of the metric may also be determined over the configurable time period and displayed in the graphical interface as well as an indication if the value of the metric exceeds a configurable threshold value.

  • Publication number: 20190356690
    Abstract: A disclosed computer-implemented method includes receiving and indexing the raw data. Indexing includes dividing the raw data into time stamped searchable events that include information relating to computer or network security. Store the indexed data in an indexed data store and extract values from a field in the indexed data using a schema. Search the extracted field values for the security information. Determine a group of security events using the security information. Each security event includes a field value specified by a criteria. Present a graphical interface (GI) including a summary of the group of security events, other summaries of security events, and a remove element (associated with the summary). Receive input corresponding to an interaction of the remove element. Interacting with the remove element causes the summary to be removed from the GI. Update the GI to remove the summary from the GI.
