  • Publication number: 20190236215
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatuses for implementing a distributed, hierarchical, and iterative data graph processing strategy are disclosed. A large data graph is partitioned and the partitions are clustered. Sets of keys and hashes are generated for each cluster and distributed to a plurality of processing machines. The processing machines recreate the partitions, based on received hashes and keys of the clusters of the first partitions, and the graph. Thereafter, the partitioning, clustering and processing is repeatable for the recreated graphs. The disclosed strategy enables processing of large and dynamic data graphs, including bipartite query-Uniform Resource Locator graphs.

  • Patent number: 10360265
    Abstract: Approaches provide for a speech driven question and answer service that uses a voice communications device to find information in which the user is interested in in response to a spoken question. For example, a voice communications device can receive a question for which an answer is desired and speak back a relevant answer. In this example, audio input data that includes the question can be received by the voice communications device. The audio input data can be analyzed to identify the question and the question can be used to query an index of stored questions to determine a set of candidate questions best matching the user's question. The candidate questions are associated with answers, and one or more answers can be combined, summarized, refined, or otherwise processed. Thereafter, the voice communications device can provide (e.g., speak back to the user) the most relevant answer(s) to the user or a modified version of the answer(s) (e.g.

  • Patent number: 10049098
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for extracting actionable information from emails in a completely unsupervised manner with no need for the data to be labeled (i.e., the systems and methods do not a human to identify unlabeled or relabeled emails). Changes in the email structure are automatically incorporated to learn new templates through the novel concept of sub-templates. The systems and methods incorporate the minor variations in email structure seamlessly, without needing to introduce new templates. Email templates are computed as permutations of multiple sub-templates in the email, which allows the systems and methods to handle variations in email structure seamlessly and highly efficiently. These systems and methods are extendable to any domain using structured emails, and improve the efficiency of the systems that receive and act on information contained in emails.

  • Patent number: 9760655
    Abstract: Systems and methods for identifying entities sharing a temporal pattern using bipartite graphs are described. In one embodiment, a method includes identifying a temporal pattern in a sequence of bipartite graphs for a sequence of records involving two entity types, where records of the sequence of bipartite graphs vary according to time. An embodiment may color code the edges between entity types in the sequence of bipartite graphs according to the at least one temporal pattern identified (e.g., increasing sales between a business representative and a customer). An embodiment may therefore identify a time-based relationship between at least two entities according to the coded edges. Given the identification of entities having a time-based relationships, groups of these entities may be identified and trends may be derived therefrom (e.g., increasing sales for business units of a particular geographic region).

  • Publication number: 20170143336
    Abstract: A surgical fastener applying apparatus includes an anvil half-section (12?) including a distal anvil (12b?) and a proximal handle (12a?) defining a release aperture (185?) at its proximal end. A cartridge receiving half-section (14?) has a distal portion (24a?) dimensioned to receive a single use loading unit and a proximal portion (24b?) configured to support a firing assembly (20?). A clamping lever (16?) is secured to the cartridge receiving half-section and includes a handle portion (190?) supporting an engagement member (218?). A firing assembly is configured to be supported within the proximal portion of the cartridge receiving half-section. The clamping lever is movable from an undamped position to a clamped position to releasably secure the anvil of the anvil half-section in close approximation with the single use loading unit.
