  • Patent number: 8437869
    Abstract: A system trains a first model to identify portions of electronic media streams based on first attributes of the electronic media streams and/or trains a second model to identify labels for identified portions of the electronic media streams based on at least one of second attributes of the electronic media streams, feature information associated with the electronic media streams, or information regarding other portions within the electronic media streams. The system inputs an electronic media stream into the first model, identifies, by the first model, portions of the electronic media stream, inputs the electronic media stream and information regarding the identified portions into the second model, and/or determines, by the second model, human recognizable labels for the identified portions.

  • Patent number: 8090773
    Abstract: A system provides account statistics to a user of a network service. The system provides access, to a user, to the network service. The system determines one of an environmental attribute or context associated with the user's access of the network service. The system provides, contemporaneously with the access of the network service, a document to the user, where the document includes account statistics related to the one of the determined environmental attribute or content.

  • Patent number: 7881255
    Abstract: A system includes multiple logging units, an aggregating unit, and an evaluation unit. The logging unit logs traffic attributes associated with network traffic received at multiple network nodes and generates traffic signatures using the received attributes. The aggregating unit aggregates the traffic signatures generated at the multiple logging units. The evaluating unit determines relationships among the network traffic or between the plurality of network nodes using the aggregated traffic signatures.

  • Patent number: 7689873
    Abstract: Errors occurring in computing clusters and other computing systems can impact system performance. Each error has an error type and each error type has a base cost estimating importance of correcting the error. Each error type also has a confidence indicating the level of agreement between those who fix the errors and those who assigned the base cost. An error type's actual cost is produced using the base cost and confidence. An error cascade map contains estimates that one error will cause another. An error type that causes other error types has a cascade cost. Upon detecting an error type, a repair order can be generated, depending on the cost involved. Repairs are then performed. Feedback mechanisms and correlations can be used to update the confidences and the error cascade map.

  • Patent number: 7366884
    Abstract: A context switching system for a multi-thread execution pipeline loop having a pipeline latency and a method of operation thereof. In one embodiment, the context switching system includes a context switch requesting subsystem configured to: (1) detect a device request from a thread executing within the multi-thread execution pipeline loop for access to a device having a fulfillment latency exceeding the pipeline latency, and (2) generate a context switch request for the thread. The context switching system further includes a context controller subsystem configured to receive the context switch request and prevent the thread from executing until the device request is fulfilled.
