  • Publication number: 20220018989
    Abstract: In an approach for forecasting environmental occlusion events, a processor receives a spatio-temporal zone of interest. A processor collects data associated with the spatio-temporal zone of interest. A processor builds a machine-learning model using the data. A processor generates an occlusion probability map for the spatio-temporal zone of interest based on the machine-learning model and enriched mathematical operators. A processor outputs the occlusion probability map.

  • Patent number: 11227099
    Abstract: A processor may receive a record. The record may include one or more segments of text. The processor may automatically generate a first summary of the record. The processor may determine an overall bias of the first summary. The overall bias of the first summary may be identified from one or more instances of bias in the first summary. The processor may generate a second summary of the record. The second summary of the record may include an indicator of the overall bias of the first summary. The indicator may include a description of a type of overall bias of the first summary and a numerical value of the overall bias of the first summary. The processor may determine an overall bias of the second summary. The processor may display the second summary of the record to a user.
