  • Patent number: 11093514
    Abstract: A query comprising a graph pattern comprising a plurality of graph triples of node-edge-node is received. A graph database comprising a plurality of graph patterns is accessed and a plurality of graph patterns in the graph database that match the received query are identified. An inverse frequency for each graph triple of the received query in the accessed graph database is calculated and from this a score for each graph pattern in the graph database that matches the received query is also calculated, the score comprising a sum of the inverse frequencies for each graph triple contained within the respective graph pattern. The plurality of graph patterns in the graph database that match the received query are then ranked according to their respective calculated scores.

  • Patent number: 11074298
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, system and computer program product for identifying relationships of interest of entities in a data modeling environment, where the data modeling environment represents objects as entities with links representing relationships between the entities. A query is received, where the query includes entity(ies) and link(s) with at least one of the entities or links designated as an output item. The query is analyzed to identify each dumbbell in the query, where a dumbbell is a link with a first entity at a first end of the link and a second entity at a second end of the link. Each identified dumbbell is examined to determine if the dumbbell includes an output item; and, if the dumbbell includes an output item, adding the dumbbell to a catalogue of relationships if a dumbbell is not already listed having the link type and entity types of the identified dumbbell.

  • Patent number: 11012319
    Abstract: A method, computer system, and a computer program product for entity selection in a visualization of a network graph is provided. The present invention may include receiving as input a selection interaction. The present invention may then include generating a profile based on one or more entity characteristics of one or more entities selected in the selection interaction. The present invention may then include generating a weighting for one or more entities based on the generated profile, wherein the generated weighting is a sum of weights of one or more entity characteristics. The present invention may lastly include partitioning the user interface into one or more selectable areas, wherein a size of the selectable area is based on the generated weighting for a displayed entity.
