  • Publication number: 20240054421
    Abstract: Embodiments disclosed are directed to a computing system that performs steps to automatically identify risk control features and entities in a risk control document. The computing system uses a generative machine learning (ML) model to transform a risk control document into sequences of words, classify risk control features associated with the sequences of words, and pair the sequences of words with the classified risk control features. The computing system then uses a natural language processing (NLP) model to identify syntactic characteristics of the sequences of words. Subsequently, the computing system uses a discriminative predictor system to correct the classified risk control features based on the identified syntactic characteristics, identify boundaries of the corrected classified risk control features, and pair the identified boundaries with the corrected classified risk control features.

  • Patent number: 11901684
    Abstract: A connection system to facilitate the mechanical coupling, and the transfer of electrical power between, trunk sections of an artificial tree is disclosed. The connection system can include a mechanical coupling system having a guiding surface and a guiding slot on a first trunk section and a guiding protrusion disposed inside a second trunk section. Insertion of the first trunk section into the second trunk section and thus contact of the guiding protrusion against the guiding surface can cause the first trunk section to rotate relative the second trunk section until a predetermined rotational alignment is reached, aligning electrical contacts of first and second electrical connectors, each of which is attached to an outer wall of a respective trunk section. The electrical contacts of the first and second electrical connectors can establish electrical communication between the first and second electrical connectors, and thus between the first and second trunk sections.
