  • Patent number: 10631057
    Abstract: Presenting natural-language-understanding (NLU) results can include redundancies and awkward sentence structures. In an embodiment of the present invention, a method includes, responsive to receiving a result to a NLU query, loading a matching template of a plurality of templates stored in a memory. Each template has mask fields associated with at least one property. The method compares the properties of the mask fields of each of the templates to properties of the query and properties of the result, and selects the matching template. The method further completes the matching template by inserting fields of the result into corresponding mask fields of the matching template. The method may further suppress certain mask fields of the matching template to increase brevity and improve the naturalness of the response when appropriate based on the results of the NLU query. The method further presents the completed matching template to a user via a display.

  • Publication number: 20200019981
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for determining, by a coupon distributor, a value for a coupon of a product or service that will be provided by a coupon provider. The coupon provider provides, to the coupon distributor, one or both of a budget value that indicates an amount the coupon provider is willing to pay the coupon distributor for distributing the coupon, and a redemption rate that indicates one or more target redemption rates. The coupon provider uses a coupon value equation to calculate the coupon value based on a budget value and a redemption rate. The coupon provider might estimate that no coupon value will allow the coupon provider to stay within the budget and ensure that the actual redemption rate will be close to a particular redemption rate, which may or may not be specified by the coupon distributor.

  • Patent number: 10462543
    Abstract: Methods and systems for optical data unit (ODU) path protection in a disaggregated optical transport network (OTN) switching system that include using plug-in universal (PIU) modules each having multiple ports for OTN to Ethernet transceiving and an Ethernet fabric as a switching core are disclosed. An OTN over Ethernet module in each of the PIU modules may enable various OTN functionality to be realized using the Ethernet fabric which may include multiple Ethernet switches. An egress PIU module may receive Ethernet packets via the Ethernet fabric from a working ODU path. In response to determining that a protection switch using a protection ODU path may be performed on the working ODU path, the egress PIU module may receive the Ethernet packets via the Ethernet fabric from the protection ODU path.
