  • Patent number: 11461685
    Abstract: In one embodiment, the method includes determining one or more nodes associated with a treatment of a query; generating one or more stimuli associated with the treatment of the query wherein the or each stimulus are likely to perturb one or more resources within a system; measuring data at the or each node relating to the resources to determine the effect of the or each stimuli at the or each node; identifying one or more pairs of nodes which have a correlation in the measured data; transforming the correlation into a causal relationships where the cause is a measuring device measuring the response and the consequences are the other correlated measuring devices; generating a list of causal relationships; and combining different causal relationships into a causal model so that a chain of causal propagations can be built.

  • Patent number: 11275991
    Abstract: Systems and methods for training neural networks. One embodiment is a system that includes a memory configured to store samples of training data for a Deep Neural Network (DNN), and a distributor. The distributor identifies a plurality of work servers provisioned for training the DNN by processing the samples via a model of the DNN, receives information indicating Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) processing powers at the work servers, determines differences in the GPU processing powers between the work servers based on the information, and allocates the samples among the work servers based on the differences.

  • Patent number: 10250579
    Abstract: A capability is provided for securely transferring a file within network-based storage. A capability is provided for securely transferring a user file of a user from a first server to a second server. The first server may be associated with a first service provider and the second server may be associated with a second service provider. The secure transfer of a user file from the first server to the second server may be performed based on a One-Click File Transfer capability in which only a single click by the user is needed in order for the user file to be transferred. The secure transfer of a user file from the first server to the second server may be performed based on a Zero-Click File Transfer capability in which the user file may be transferred without any interaction by the user.

  • Patent number: 9686242
    Abstract: Systems and methods for preventing web services from using sensitive data in customizing web pages for a user. In one embodiment, a protection system is implemented between the user and the web service. The protection system identifies past interactions of the user with the web service, identifies text in the past interactions between the user and the web service, and identifies subjects discussed in the text. The protection system then communicates with the user to determine which of the subjects are sensitive to the user, and deletes a history stored by the web service for the user that relates to the sensitive subjects.

  • Patent number: 9069962
    Abstract: A method and computer product are presented for identifying Internet worm propagation based upon changes in packet arrival rates at a network connection. First, unsolicited (i.e., packets that were not requested by the receiver) traffic is separated from solicited traffic at the network connection. The unsolicited traffic arrival patterns are monitored and analyzed for any changes. Once changes in the unsolicited traffic arrival patterns are detected, the changes are mathematically analyzed to detect growth trends. The presence of growth trends that follow certain key characteristics indicate whether the changes are due to worm propagation.
