  • Publication number: 20240061873
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to data association, attribution, annotation, and interpretation systems and related methods of efficiently organizing heterogeneous data at a massive scale. Incoming data is received and extracted for identifying information (“information”). Multiple dimensionality reducing functions are applied to the information, and based on the function results, the information are grouped into sets of similar information. Filtering rules are applied to the sets to exclude non-matching information in the sets. The sets are then merged into groups of information based on whether the sets contain at least one common information. A common link may be associated with information in a group. If the incoming data includes the identifying information associated with to the common link, the incoming data is assigned the common link. In some embodiments, incoming data are not altered but assigned into domains.

  • Publication number: 20240037101
    Abstract: Dynamic partitioning of a search space of queries is implemented for flexible, heuristic database querying. Search space partitioning refers to dividing the search space for a submitted query into smaller parts by augmenting the queries to append thereto an additional predicate comprising a dynamic partition key and a value(s) selected based on heuristics (e.g., recency and/or relevancy of the value(s)). A plurality of candidate augmentations of the query and corresponding query plans are generated and evaluated based on additional heuristics to determine which can be executed to yield the best results in terms of result quality and latency. This query plan is selected and executed for retrieval of results that satisfy the query, with pagination utilized for presentation of the results. The procedure of generating candidate query plans, selecting one of the candidates for execution, and paginating results is repeated until a search termination criterion is satisfied.

  • Publication number: 20230315543
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for executing tightly coupled parallel applications on a serverless computing system. A serverless computing system executes user-submitted code in sandboxed environments such as virtual machines or containers. To support execution of parallel applications that require data transfer between instances of the application, the serverless computing system implements an ephemeral mesh network that allows instances of the parallel application to communicate with each other while executing in their respective sandboxes. In some embodiments, a controller or parent application may also connect to the ephemeral mesh network to coordinate execution of the parallel applications. In other embodiments, the parent application may be external to the serverless computing system.
