  • Publication number: 20220377097
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for temporal link prediction based on (generalized) random dot product graphs (RDPGs), as well as applications of such temporal link prediction to network anomaly detection. In various embodiments, starting from a time series of adjacency matrices characterizing the evolution of the network, spectral embeddings and time-series models are used to predict estimated link probabilities for a future point in time, and the predicted link probabilities are compared against observed links to identify anomalous behavior. In some embodiments, element-wise independent models are used in the prediction to take network dynamics into account at the granularity of individual nodes or edges.

  • Publication number: 20220248902
    Abstract: A cooking system includes a housing defining a hollow chamber configured to receive food. The housing has an upper portion defining an opening to said hollow chamber. A lid is movable relative to the housing between an open position and a closed position. The lid seals the opening to the hollow chamber when in the closed position. A portion of the lid is selectively positionable to form a pressure-tight heating volume between the hollow chamber and the portion of said lid. At least one heating element is associated with at least one of the housing and the lid. The at least one heating element is arranged within the pressure-tight heating volume.

  • Publication number: 20220217167
    Abstract: A technique for dynamically updating a user interface for threat investigation may include receiving a scheduled transmittal of events in an event stream from an endpoint at a threat management facility, processing the event stream at the threat management facility to detect an intermediate threat, in response to detecting the intermediate threat at the threat management facility, requesting a transmittal of supplemental information from a data recorder on the endpoint, receiving the supplemental information in a supplemental transmittal from the endpoint to the threat management facility, and displaying a description of the intermediate threat and the supplemental information in a user interface hosted by the threat management facility, where the user interface is configured for user investigation and disposition of the intermediate threat.

  • Publication number: 20220215928
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for utilizing machine learning techniques to analyze data associated with one or more dental practices to identify missed treatment opportunities, future treatment opportunities, or provider performance metrics. The treatment opportunities or performance metrics may be determined or identified based at least in part on a comparison of patient data, such as data stored in association with a dental office's practice management system, with the output of one or more machine learning models' processing of associated radiograph images of the dental office's patients. The one or more machine learning models may include models that identify, from image data of a radiograph, a dental condition depicted in the radiograph, which may be mapped by a computer system to a corresponding dental treatment recommended for the identified dental condition.
