  • Patent number: 10416162
    Abstract: In certain aspects, the present invention provides methods for determining whether a Her-2 positive cancer is likely to respond to treatment with a Her2-acting agent and/or whether a patient with a Her-2 positive cancer is likely to have a slow disease progression. In other aspects, the present invention is drawn to methods for determining whether a subject with a Her-2 positive cancer is unlikely to respond to treatment with at least one chemotherapeutic agent in addition to a Her2-acting agent and/or whether a patient with a Her-2 positive cancer is likely to have a fast disease progression.

  • Publication number: 20190243617
    Abstract: Improving how a codebase, which may include source code, related databases, test files, code history, and/or changes, is drafted, edited, debugged, or otherwise developed. Machine learning is performed on a model codebase to establish a machine learning model. When a change to a codebase occurs, the machine learning model may be applied to evaluate that change. A change context providing context for this change is accessed. An analyzer then analyzes the change using the machine learning model and at least a part of the change context to generate an analysis result. Some information about the result is rendered. After rendering that information, a determination regarding how a user responded to the information is performed, and a subsequent analysis is then modified based on the user's response.

  • Publication number: 20190188584
    Abstract: A system that provides an improved approach for detecting and predicting failures in a plant or equipment process. The approach may facilitate failure-model building and deployment from historical plant data of a formidable number of measurements. The system implements methods that generate a dataset containing recorded measurements for variables of the process. The methods reduce the dataset by cleansing bad quality data segments and measurements for uninformative process variables from the dataset. The methods then enrich the dataset by applying nonlinear transforms, engineering calculations and statistical measurements. The methods identify highly correlated input by performing a cross-correlation analysis on the cleansed and enriched dataset, and reduce the dataset by removing less-contributing input using a two-step feature selection procedure. The methods use the reduced dataset to build and train a failure model, which is deployed online to detect and predict failures in real-time plant operations.

  • Publication number: 20180213044
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a real-time and interactive preview of alerts is provided in a user interface. A computer system parses a set of rules that specifies an alert definition. Each rule identifies a set of observations and an alert trigger criterion based on user input in the user interface. For a rule, the computer system accesses historical data corresponding to the set of observations identified by the rule and determines, based on an analysis of the historical data, time points that trigger alerts over a time period according to the rule. The analysis is based on the alert trigger criterion identified by the rule. The computer system aggregates, based on the alert definition, the time points determined for the rule with time points determined for another rule from the set of rules. Further, the computer system generates an alert preview over the time period for presentation at the user interface.

  • Patent number: 9396444
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for predicting network activity with forecasting model selection are disclosed. In one embodiment a network analytics forecasting model with a preferred model error measurement is selected from among a set of model error measurements for a set of network analytics forecasting models. The selecting includes, for each of a set of network analytics forecasting models, calculating a set of predicted network analytics metric values corresponding to individual ones of a set of actual network analytics metric values in a network analytics metrics data set, comparing individual ones of the set of predicted network analytics metric values to corresponding ones of the set of actual network analytics metric values, and generating a model error measurement reflecting the comparing. Future network analytics metric values are predicted using the network analytics forecasting model with the preferred model error measurement.
