  • Patent number: 10832162
    Abstract: Techniques for model based data processing are proposed. In one example, a computer-implemented method is as follows. A first model is determined from a first category of data processing models and a second model is determined from a second category of data processing models. The second category can be different from the first category in some instances. Performance of a first combined model of the first and second models can be compared with performance of the first model. A target model for processing data can be selected from the first combined model and the first model based on the comparing.
